Peter Bonne, OrbitGT Geospatial Technologies, CEO, spoke with GISCafe CEO Sanjay Gangal at SPAR3D, about Orbit GT’s new SaaS platform www.3dmapping.cloud Bonne shared more about the product line with GISCafe Voice after the conference.
“Sharing your data with anyone in the world just by a single click, that’s what we’ve been promising and what we are delivering,” says Bonne. “Owners of a 3D mapping dataset, such as Mobile Mapping coverage, can now share with a single person or with many users within an organization in one quick action. This simple concept will open up vast business opportunities for every data owner.”
Still a major challenge for people in many firms is sharing access to complex datasets such as Mobile Mapping data containing multiple imagery and LiDAR point clouds amongst co-workers. This capability has been available from day one in www.3dmapping.cloud. Now you can make the same data accessible for anyone outside your organization as well as those within it. Whatever users could do on the desktop they can now do on the cloud. Transportation, telecommunications, and some government agencies are eager to use this technology, so that they can utilize it within many departments within one organization.
The possibilities for demonstration, collaboration, delivery, data integration extend exponentially. And the best part is, the Belgian OrbitGT does not charge anything for this, whatever the relation between data owner and data user is.
Orbit Geospatial Technologies focuses on solutions for exploiting 3D Mapping content in managing, viewing, extracting, publishing, sharing and embedding in workflows, either desktop or cloud based. Orbit GT specializes in 3D mapping solutions for Mobile Mapping, UAS mapping, indoor mapping and aerial oblique mapping, making ease of use their goal.
Bonne said OrbitGT offers a broad portfolio of Mobile Mapping products: two desktop products and a server side product. “For the desktop we have a portfolio for the mobile mapping business from A to Z, and we work with all the hardware vendors. For people who go mapping and collecting data there is the Mobile Mapping Content Manager for the desktop.”
Their feature extraction product includes a variety of offerings, from low and to high end. Those products are aimed at people who want to extract actionable data from the raw data that comes from mobile mapping, imagery and point cloud. It is typically the data collected by the mobile mapping system, but not everybody can work with the cloud images.
