NACKA STRAND, Sweden, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hexagon AB, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, announces the acquisition of Luciad, a Belgian-based software company specialising in the visualisation and analysis of real-time geospatial information.

Luciad's visualisation technologies support live connections to dynamic sensor feeds in a 3D environment. The result is a 5D digital reality – real-time, rapid fusion of multi-source content and the ability to perform analytics on-the-fly. These intuitive command and control systems benefit all kinds of applications – from public safety to smart cities to defense and intelligence – enabling users to make critical decisions based on changing information in real-time.

"This acquisition strengthens Hexagon's ability to deliver smart digital realities, enhancing our Smart M.App platform with 3D, 4D (real-time sensor feed integration) and 5D (dynamic analytics) capabilities," said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. "The ability to rapidly integrate sensor data in a visually compelling environment provides the geospatial location intelligence and situational awareness necessary for mission critical operations."

Luciad has over 100 highly-skilled professionals in 8 countries, with over 100,000 users of its technology globally.

Luciad will be fully consolidated as of today, operating within Hexagon's Geospatial division. The company's turnover for 2016 amounted to 16 MEUR.
