Nominees:

 

ASAP Geomatix

ASAP Geomatix started as a sister company to ASAP Avionics in Campbell River. We realized the potential to develop leading aerial imagery and mapping not only in Campbell River but across Canada. Since our startup in 2012, it’s been a tough road of discovering customer needs and technology development. We’ve travelled across BC and Alberta working for major oil and utility companies such as Kinder Morgan, Husky and TransAlta. We’ve also aimed to promote good causes. ASAP Geomatix is the first geomatics company to research tsunami debris mapping from the air. We’ve worked with living oceans and ecofish consultants.

 

Eagle Eye Adventures

Eagle Eye Adventures is an ecological tour company based in Campbell River. We have a highly trained and enthusiastic team who specialize in providing people with a great experience and long lasting memories. We work closely with other businesses to improve the tourist experience. We can arrange accommodation for you, take you on a tour, and even set you up with an airplane/boat tour if that is your preference. Our staff is service oriented and will go the extra mile to make sure you have the best experience possible. We want your visit to Campbell River to be memorable for all the right reasons.

 

SuavAir

SuavAir uses drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), to capture low elevation aerial imagery around Vancouver Island. Our ability to digitally capture both photographs and videos from new heights and angles provides endless opportunities for a variety of applications. We produce high quality, geo-referenced aerial photography, and videography for the forestry, real estate, and tourism industries. We can also create 3D models and high resolution maps that can be used in ArcGIS and GoogleEarth.

 

Tremain Media and Tremain Timelapse

Tremain Media produces a range of content in a variety of media. This includes video, web sites, advertising, marketing and a broad range of print and web-based materials. We produce media for clients across Canada but the majority of our work is done for clients here in Campbell River.

Since 2012 Tremain Media has been also operating Tremain Timelapse which provides expertise and wholly owned intellectual property driven products for the construction and remediation market.

Tremain Timelapse provides daily timelapse video, on-site live video monitoring, hourly site photos, super high-res 30,000 pixel wide panoramas, a robust portal delivery system, satellite caching units for remote visual data, and, when needed, secure Canada-only cloud systems – all with mission critical security and back-ups. Daily timelapse gives busy executives 8 hours of deep visual video data watchable in 2 minutes. Tremain Timelapse services negate 90% of travel expenditures, lowers carbon footprints, increases site safety and are innovative and efficient solutions for reporting, tracking, analyzing, project management and promotion.

Both Tremain Media and Tremain Timelapse work seamlessly together as there are many media crossovers between the two divisions.
