30+ years of visualizing the real world
From the outset, Cyclomedia was unique in providing large-scale and systematic visualization of physical environments using specialized technology to collect 360˚ spherical imagery from a moving vehicle. The technology concept began at the Technical University of Delft, conducting the initial research to develop a camera prototype in 1980.
In the 30+ years since its academic beginnings, Cyclomedia has relentlessly pursued a path of focused technology innovation and excellence. New developments in camera technology and innovations with 3D image capture keep the company at the forefront of the fields and in a position to help customers solve business challenges.
