METAGEO announced the launch of its GIS 3D Map Platform to enable organizations of all sizes to host, analyze, find and share 3D map datasets between any internet-capable device. The platform processes any location-based map or sensor data from the real world, combines it into a single 3D virtual environment and streams it to any device or Metaverse platform.
Today’s traditional GIS platforms are expensive, primarily offer 2D mapping features, are highly complicated and often require an advanced degree to master. 3D map and scan datasets are large, expensive and often hidden. Furthermore, these large files are often unsuitable for viewing on mobile devices or rendering in AR/VR environments. METAGEO addresses these issues with an affordable and easy-to-use platform that can load data from multiple sources. These sources include satellites, drones, mobile devices, public and crowdsourced repositories, IoT sensor data, 3D models, and topographic maps. The data is then processed by the METAGEO platform into a 3D world and streamed to any internet-connected device, enabling live collaboration between the office and field via mobile or AR device.
Key innovations in the METAGEO 3D map platform include:
- Fast and intuitive multi-user interface for easy data sharing and collaboration
- Aggregation of map and location-based data from a multitude of sources on a global scale
- Seamlessly import and sync data from multiple different systems into a single platform
- Easily host and stream large datasets between internet-connected devices
- Provide ability to find open source and private data
- Plugin SDK will allow for 3rd party tools to scale and fit any user needs
METAGEO has been designed for a wide range of applications in academia, architecture, engineering, construction, energy, natural resource management, environmental monitoring, utilities, and public safety, among others. The platform uses include planning and managing construction sites, organizing the layouts of events, maps for disaster management, public safety, visualizing inspection imagery from drones and mobile devices, and much more.
“After working with 3D map data for several years, it became apparent that there was no easy way to share big datasets with those who need the information most, those with the boots on the ground,” said Paul Spaur, Founder of METAGEO. “Now with the rapid advancement of mobile hardware, and using advanced processing techniques, we can now leverage this data in real life, and in the metaverse.”
METAGEO will be offered in several affordable subscription tiers, including Free Single User, Free Educational, Standard, Commercial and Enterprise. Each tier provides added features and benefits, enabling organizations to scale. METAGEO is available to a limited number of beta subscribers. For more information visit: www.metageo.io
