Demonstrating Sensat’s best-in-class use of data visualisation
London, UK – 21st April, 2021: Sensat, a leading provider of drone data capture and visualisation software that enables civil infrastructure companies to digitally represent the real world, announced today that it has been honoured for Best Data Visualisation on websites and mobile sites in the 25th Annual Webby Awards, demonstrating best-in-class use of data visualisation by representing complex datasets in an innovative, visually appealing, and easily comprehensible way.
Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honour” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international awards organisation honouring excellence on the Internet.
IADAS, which nominates and selects The Webby Award Winners, is comprised of Internet industry experts including Internet inventor Mozilla Chairwoman Mitchell Baker; MOMA Senior Curator Paola Antonelli; Host of NPR’s Code Switch Shereen Marisol Meraji; R/GA Global Chief Creative Officer Tiffany Rolfe; Co-Inventor of the Internet Vint Cerf; DJ and Founder, Club Quarantine D-Nice; Co-host Desus & Mero on Showtime Desus Nice; SVP of Content at Twitch Michael Aragon; Twitter Senior Director, Product Design Richard Ting; and Founders of VERZUZ Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.
With more information about infrastructure being collected than ever before, Sensat’s visualisation platform, which seamlessly integrates all data and systems, offers civil infrastructure companies a single source of truth to access and visualise all their data in one place in order to navigate a digital replica of their infrastructure project, where they can collaborate across all stakeholders, surface the right information in the right context—making it immediately understandable, while also generating valuable insights to make better decisions.
“Honorees like Sensat are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said Claire Graves, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the nearly 13,500 entries we received this year.”
“It’s great to see our data visualisation platform, enabling construction and civil infrastructure companies to digitally access all their site data in one place, being recognised in an arena largely dominated by media and entertainment companies. Civil infrastructure is traditionally amongst the least digitised industries in the world today and now that technology, such as Sensat’s visualisation platform, has advanced in such a way that the physical world can now be represented online, those civil infrastructure firms who innovate and disrupt will be the difference between the digital ‘haves’ and ‘have-mores’,” said James Dean, CEO at Sensat.
