What’s in a name (and a logo)?

95West Aerial Mapping, LLC, formerly KBM GeoSpatial, LLC, has rebranded to reflect and showcase the firm’s expanded capabilities.

Effective September 30, 2021, KBM GeoSpatial has rebranded as 95West Aerial Mapping, highlighting the firm’s expanded capabilities. 95West Aerial Mapping LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Widseth.

Aerial Services Manager Miles Strain says of the rebranding, “In a nutshell, the timing was right to capture and reflect the new, exciting opportunities we have in front of us. The commitment from Widseth to invest in the new (bigger and better) plane, Lidar sensor, and imaging sensor; the growth of the department under new management; and upgrades to software and hardware gives us a renewed focus with the latest technology in the aerial industry.”

What’s in a name (and a logo)? The name 95West is a nod to the 95th meridian west of the prime meridian, which runs through the heart of 95West’s service area. Meridians are imaginary lines drawn north–south, from pole to pole, with numbering beginning at and advancing east and west from the Prime Meridian. Meridians are expressed as degrees, thus the design element captured by the logo. The colors represent earth and sky, as well as active energy (orange/rust) balanced with calm stability (blue).

95West provides aerial acquisition and geospatial services throughout the United States and Canada.
