Tackling the growing spatial information management market, earthmine will unveil its ground-breaking technology to collect, deliver and utilize accurate street-level three dimensional geospatial information for urban environments at the DEMOfall 07 Conference. earthmine co-founders, John Ristevski and Anthony Fassero, will lead the DEMO stage presentation on Tuesday, September 25, 2007. The company, founded in 2006, is focused on creating pre-collected geospatial stores of public urban environments worldwide and the tools to utilize them. Complete municipalities will be collected through high quality, 3D panoramic images – including every road, alley and freeway – to create a complete, consistent and publicly accessible geospatial ‘inventory’ of cities available for both government and commercial use. Additionally, unique tools for viewing, creating and extracting spatial data in context will make this data broadly accessible.
“earthmine just might be the key to making the promise of the GeoWeb a reality,” said Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMO. “With its unique ability to put complex geospatial data in a visual context that anyone can understand, earthmine is enabling a new generation of mapping applications.”
For 17 years, DEMO has established a reputation for identifying and presenting to an elite audience the products most likely to have a significant impact on the marketplace and market trends in the coming year. Each product is carefully screened and selected by Shipley, one of the top trend spotters in the personal technology product industry. The conference will be held September 24- 26, 2007 in San Diego, California.
“If earthmine delivers even ten percent of what they are describing, it has tremendous commercial viability,” said David Sonnen, IDC consultant for Spatial Information Management Research. “The promise of earthmine’s technology and its ability to tie web delivery with the enormous stores of existing geospatial data out there is really quite significant. The positional accuracy of earthmine’s technology coupled with its ability to automate the production environment workflow truly differentiates it. I haven’t seen anyone doing anything like this in a way that could be broadly scaled.”
