Racurs celebrated 20 years of successful activity. Since its foundation in 1993 with a group of four employees led by Dr. Victor Adrov, our
company has been developing innovative digital mapping software for processing aerial, space, and terrestrial imagery. Racurs developed rapidly
from a small, specialized software developer into a major, international photogrammetric systems supplier and service provider.
Our flagship product PHOTOMOD was one of the first digital photogrammetric
systems on the market to be designed to work on off-the-shelf PCs. Today PHOTOMOD is the most popular digital photogrammetric software in Russia
and is well known all over the world.
PHOTOMOD's name was born on this boat in 1995
Dr. Victor Adrov mentioned: “We founded Racurs in 1993. By “we” I mean three colleagues and me, all of us at the time lecturing and researching at the
Physics and Technology Institute of Moscow University, which was and still is a very prestigious institute. We have known each other since 1974,
when we were students; such a long time guarantees stable relationships. That is maybe the secret of our success: We are all very different, but
we all have the same goal. That is also the meaning of the word Racurs: “course,” in the sense of a route to follow to your destination. A strong team of professionals, an excellent reputation in Russia and the international market, and ambitious plans allow us to continue developing the company in the right way. We believe in a bright future with numerous celebrations.”
