Geopipe gives you detailed models of the real world in an instant. Simply select an area in our web interface, choose the level of detail you need for your application, and download your model in industry-standard file formats
Geopipe builds clever algorithms to turn 2D and 3D data into highly detailed 3D virtual models of the world.
Working with data
Our system ingests and analyzes big geographic and numeric data, including satellite photos, maps, laser scans, and much more. We work with 2D and 3D data from public and private sources, and the more data we have, the more accurate our models become.
How it's done
We apply machine learning and algorithmic analysis techniques to understand the structure of the real world as represented in the data. Geopipe's system builds a semantic model of the world, representing not only what it looks like, but what's in it, from the ground to the trees to the locations of individual windows in buildings.
Updates in the cloud
By processing the data within a distributed system running in the cloud, we can rapidly analyze data and reconstruct whole cities in a matter of hours. Because we generate these models ahead of time, and update them as often as we have new data, you can immediately download models cropped from existing cities throughout our web interface.
km² of world models
Architects and urban designers need to win bids, present to regulatory bodies, and emotionally connect with clients, using 3D visualizations. From massing and shadow studies to photorealistic renders, videos, walkthroughs, and VR experiences, architects need context models of the built world, and Geopipe provides customizable models that perfectly fit these needs.
Game designers need models where windows are made of glass, doors open, trees blow in the wind, and you can swim in water. Geopipe uses machine learning to understand the objects and materials in the world, providing models that are instantly ready for interactive applications.
It's easy to explore a full building, not just its interior, and to explore the views out windows if you have your city in 3D. Geopipe makes this possible.
Whether you're training an autonomous vehicle, a first responder, or a soldier, the real world is the single best environment you can use. Simulating the real world avoids the infeasible, dangerous, and expensive process of training in reality, and Geopipe provides the detailed, interactive models necessary.
Special effects artists need to visualize, interact with, and physically simulate the real world. Geopipe's semantically rich models encode materials and physical properties in addition to visual details.
