Outline Organisational Context

We are Australia’s leading supplier of premium quality custom collect aerial imagery and LiDAR data and are leaders in applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions.

We will continue to grow, innovate, and deliver without accepting second best.

The Outline Global journey began in 2007 with a small team. Frustrated by the lack of advancement in the aerial survey technology, in 2015 we designed and commercialised the first Gtech™ Aerial Camera Pod system using global best of breed technology – the best money could buy. We now have a growing number of aerial imagery pods based on the original design and have added LiDAR and thermal camera systems. We are focused on implementing a well-considered growth plan and building out many more systems, products, and related AI services.

Our staff compliment is expanding to support this growth and the continued high demand for our services. Our primary data processing centre is located in Melbourne with significant operational presence in other states.
