The product launch comes after the firm last month scooped a six-figure deal to monitor the 630,000-hectare Romeo-Malette Forest in Ontario.

Chief executive Gavin Tweedie said: "Over the last 18 months, we have placed significant focus on refining our products to target key customers and sectors where we believe our products can make a real impact. Using our technology and geospatial analytics, we can create compelling economic intelligence that can be used to improve crucial business decision making.

“Each product can be configured to suit a specific application and this unique approach to delivering geospatial intelligence in a practical and reusable manner is what will allow us and our customers to scale quickly and utilise the technology more effectively and more frequently."
