About Kav Medida – Gavriel Lotan Engineers

Kav Medida (KM) is one of Israel’s leading and most professional companies in the field of land survey, geodesy, mapping and photogrammetry in Israel. The company was established in 2012 and has been, since its inception, in providing a variety of land survey, mapping and property registration. In 2018, KM acquired the “Road and Traffic Planning Company – Gavriel Lotan Engineers”, which has been operating for more than 50 years and specializes in physical road planning, traffic planning, and drainage planning. The acquisition turned KM into a group that offers professional surveying services alongside road and traffic planning services as a one-stop-shop. This integration offers to the clients a high-quality product with improved compatibility with significant cost-saving.

A Broad Service Offering Accompanies the Client Across the Entire Process

KM offers a broad service offering that accompanies the client from mapping and planning up to the completion of the construction development process, with the registry in the Land Registry offices. KM is headed by Yoav Coller and Eyal Rabinovich, experts with more than 30 years of experience in land surveying. Both graduated from the Technion’s Geo-information and Civil Engineering program, and served in a wide variety of executive and consulting positions in the ILA and other economic and academic institutes. The services that the company offers include: mapping and surveying for planning, preparing registration plans, real estate formalization, land registry, photogrammetric mapping, mapping from drones, mobile and drive-by mapping, GIS, services for the agricultural sector, BIM technologies and more.

The Company’s Clientele

KM provides its services mainly to institutes such as the Israel Roads Company, Ayalon Highways, the Light Rail Project, the Ministry of Housing, Israel Ports Authority, Israel Railways, ILA, Cross-Israel Highway, local authorities across Israel, the Ministry of Defense, Tnu’at HaMoshavim and more. The company also provides services to project management companies that operate on behalf of the state or local authorities, and manages the entire planning and development process for them. The company also provides surveying and valuation services for large banks across Israel.

The Human Capital

KM group employs about 70 employees, including civil engineers, certified surveyors, geographers, practical engineers, GIS experts, technology experts and programmers. Owing to the wide variety of disciplines in which the company and its skilled professionals are active, KM can offer a multidisciplinary service that covers every aspect of the project.
Aerial and Land Surveying via Drones
KM employs advanced technologies for real-time solutions. Drone surveying produces precise topographical maps, orthophotos, and 3D models promptly. This innovative capability processes vast data and offers bird’s-eye views of construction updates. Skilled personnel from the geo-information field and IDF veterans contribute to this technology. Accurate measurements facilitate cost-saving comparative analyses and prevent lawsuits.

Mobile Mapping

Another technology that the company uses to provide efficient and fast surveying services is mobile mapping. The combination of mobile mapping and drones is the cutting-edge in mapping and surveying from the aspects of speed, efficiency, accuracy and accessibility of the data for planning and documenting infrastructure of roads, railways, tunnels etc.

Partners in a Unique Startup

Not only does KM implement technologies, it also develops pioneering technologies in its field, as well exemplified by its cooperation with the international company SkyCatch to develop a unique and innovative device for monitoring above-ground and underground construction. The companies recently received support and funding from the Bird Fund through NIST and the Israel Innovation Authority. This innovative device would fit in the palm of a hand and integrate automatically-operated laser sensors, integration sensors and a GPS with a spatial accuracy of up to 2cm. KM believes that this device would transform the land surveying field, since its operations requires no training and is extremely accurate even for those who try it for the first time. The group explains that the device’s innovative solutions are based on an advanced AI-based detection system that enables to autonomously connect the geographical network above ground with underground surveying of tunnels, subterranean stations etc. All to improve the surveying and monitoring processes of every construction project and enable to connect the device to various robots, drones and vehicles with significant cost-saving.

Flagship Projects

Over the years, KM was responsible for surveys and mapping in several national flagship projects, including the light rail in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Cable Car, surveying the entire roads infrastructure for Israel Roads Company, surveys for the cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod and Eilat, and more and more.
The company also planned many kilometers of roads and all of the roads in numerous neighborhoods across Israel such as: Ir HaYain in Ashdod (11,000 apartments), Or Yam in Or Akiva (3,300 apartments), Neot Shamir in Ramla (3,800 apartments) and many more.

Smart Cities

The integration of geoinformation and mapping in the municipal space constitutes a central pillar in the design of a smart city. To ensure reliable, accessible, and accurate data for a smart city, advanced remote sensing tools, as well as accessibility and analytics systems, are required to package and distribute the information while integrating with existing systems in the city. Therefore, Kav Medida has developed a comprehensive solution that combines state-of-the-art technologies such as mobile mapping, panoramic imagery, LiDAR point clouds, and more. This advanced system creates the most realistic and precise digital twin. Kav Medida has elevated the level of control and management of smart cities to an international standard, ranking among the highest in the world. The unique tools, up-to-date information, and advanced analytics enable better urban planning, making cities greener, safer, and more efficient. This includes monitoring urban impacts, mapping infrastructures, waste management, building surveys, signage, construction sites, planning regulations, enforcement, and more.
