The Aerometrex Ltd (ASX: AMX) share price has had a great month on the ASX.

The aerial mapping company’s stock has soared 20% since this time last month, seemingly on the back of its financial year 2021 (FY21) earnings.

Right now, the Aerometrex share price is 83.5 cents, 6.37% higher than its previous close.

Let’s take a look at the latest news from Aerometrex.

Aerometrex’s FY21

The Aerometrex share price has taken off over the past 30 days.

Its gains were helped along by a huge boost to its annual reoccurring revenue. For FY21, the company reported reoccurring revenue of $4.8 million, 189% more than in FY20.

Most of the increase was due to its MetroMap subscription service, which reported 416% more statutory reoccurring revenue than it did for the previous financial year.

Aerometrex also saw its total revenue increase by 4% to $20.9 million.

Also undoubtedly helping the Aerometrex share price was the company’s glowing outlook for FY22.

Following a purchase order signed by Alphabet’s (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Google for a 3D data set covering the San Francisco Bay area, Aerometrex believes it’s gained traction in the US and is in a good position to grow in the region.

Aerometrex believes the market for 3D mapping in the US will soon be worth $1 billion.

Additionally, it thinks it will see further revenue growth from its MetroMap subscription service in FY22, helped along by the launch of MetroMap 3.0.
