Core competencies

  • The biggest priority in the wildlife industry is the wellbeing of animals. Accurate monitoring of animal health and growth with minimal disturbance to the animal is thus of the utmost importance. We developed a globally unique photogrammetric system to allow for accurate 3D measurement of various body size parameters, body condition and
    horn size. Therefore, we are able to supply the wildlife industry with accurate scientific
    data to improve both short-term valuation of game, and long-term monitoring and management in the breeding of high-quality
    trophy animals.
  • Creation of 3D replicas of wild animals (most mammal species) with technologically advanced 3D modelling
  • Scientific and accurate wildlife health monitoring without immobilisation of the animal
  • Providing wildlife farmers on the size and quality of wildlife animals
  • Body metrics:
    • Body mass/body volume
    • Shoulder height
    • Standard length
