Mission

To transform businesses and promote sustainable development by generating actionable insights using geospatial technologies and services



Vision

Digitize the real world



OUR STORY

Magnasoft was founded by a group of mapping professionals, and our first big contract was a GIS project for Bangalore Municipality in 2002. Those were the days of paper maps and hard copies, and we used CAD to execute the project!

What began with a simple mapping project has evolved into a geospatial platform that builds 3D content and Digital Twins for clients in several cities around the world.

Today, we solve real-world problems such as ADAS, optical connectivity, vegetation-induced power outages, asset maintenance, sustainable engineering, and development.
