Cab-hailing platform Ola on Tuesday said it had acquired GeoSpoc, a leading provider of geospatial services in the country, for an undisclosed sum.

Ola founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal said that GeoSpoc scientists and engineers would join Ola to develop technologies that will make mobility universally accessible, sustainable and convenient across shared and personal vehicles.

“As shared and personal mobility penetrate deeper to cover 50-100 per cent of India’s population in the coming years, Maps will need to improve in a variety of ways,” he said.

He added that accurate and rich maps with high user context should be available to the population beyond the first 100 million users.

Led by CEO Dhruva Rajan, GeoSpoc was incubated as an idea at a Barista coffee shop in Pune in the summer of 2014.

Today, it continues to double its growth and is moving into a larger facility in Pune. The start-up now has permanent staff based out of the UK and has expanded geospatial services to more customers. In the US, it launched its platform based on Geoblockchain.

Autonomous driving will need HD and 3D maps which will offer superior visualization and dynamic real-time updates based on the road, traffic, and weather conditions.

“Enhanced geo-spatial services will also go a long way in improving urban planning including road networks, better public transportation and pre-empt congestion spots,” said Aggarwal.

Ola said that it has the data, expertise, and a massive network of 2,3 and 4Ws that provide unprecedented geospatial details.

“We can layer this data with new sources such as satellite imagery and visual feeds from our network on-ground to build ‘Living Maps’ that embody the changing landscape of our world,” the company said.

Last month, EV manufacturer Ola Electric raised over $200 million led by Falcon Edge, Softbank, and others, at a valuation of $3 billion.

Ola said it will accelerate the development of other vehicle platforms including electric motorbikes, mass-market scooter, and its electric car.
