Removing the barriers to entry by making it easy to create immersive geodata visualisations that tell a story and explain a process. Maple Precision has incorporated insights from the gaming industry to create a platform that organises spatial data for a variety of different open data sources and lets users create 3D animations in web browser.

A platform that takes video and creates 3D mapping layers based on that data. The video can be from avariety of different sensors, does not need to be vertically looking down on the geography and each 3D output is georeferenced
Commercial imagery resolution is down to 30 centimeters.With modern interpolation techniques, you can produce images with a 15-centimeter resolution equivalent. You canidentify features in pastures that otherwise would not have been visible. Counting livestock is important on several levels — for animal disease control and for inventory.
The applications of the satellite systems are endless and we separate them into different market segments. For example,agriculture,location-based services (mainly phones),transport usages (navigation on roads, rail or maritime), andaviation (landing procedures heavily rely on EGNOS).Thegeomatics market is important; it’s a segment that’s usually the first adopter because they need the highest precision locationing.
