Spatial Networks, a provider of geospatial ground-truth data, Vricon, a producer of geospatial 3D solutions, and Cesium, a complete platform for building dynamic, 3D geospatial applications, have announced a new technology partnership that will enable government and industry clients to obtain a more complete picture of remote environments than ever before.
Spatial Networks has spent two decades delivering granular, street-level data from even the most complex and sensitive geographies by employing a global network of geospatial professionals, and Vricon provides highly accurate, immersive 3D analytics and data models using commercial satellite imagery and big data analytics. Now that information can be fused and integrated with Cesium’s powerful 3D map-building technology, so users have the ability to visualize massive amounts of high-fidelity data in context and on a highly accurate foundation.
The companies first announced the partnership at this year’s GEOINT 2019 Symposium in San Antonio, Texas, where they demonstrated 3D digital surface models using highly detailed datasets.
“A lot of organizations rely heavily on Cesium, and leveraging their platform to fuse and visualize Vricon’s 3D geodata with the ground-truth information we provide delivers an even richer understanding of an environment,” said Brian Monheiser, Chief Revenue Officer at Spatial Networks.
“Cesium provides the best tool for visualizing our two data sources and does so in a well-known and widely used platform,” he continued. “We have only scratched the surface of what we can do with our combined technologies.”
"Using Cesium to fuse together Spatial Networks’ street-level data with Vricon 3D digital surface models creates an accurate view into some of the most challenging corners of the world to collect data for,” said Patrick Cozzi, CEO at Cesium. “The combination of heterogeneous datasets in a 3D geospatial context provides unique and actionable insights."
“The partnership with Cesium and Spatial Networks is a natural fit for our users,” adds Magnus Brege, CEO of Vricon. “Spatial Networks’ information deeply enriches our 3D foundation with human scale ground truth and focused attribution. Cesium provides the scalable platform necessary for our users to visualize, analyze, and consume the fused 3D content. This three-way partnership opens doors to many new possibilities and applications for all our customers.”
Together, Spatial Networks, Vricon, and Cesium are empowering organizations with more accurate, detailed geospatial data and helping them see it more clearly, facilitating more confident decision making from anywhere in the world.
