Happy Holidays from Geopipe

Posted by Christi Kroll

Season’s Greetings!

Wishing you and your loved ones health, safety, and happiness this holiday season!

Falling snowflakes and chilled temperatures frost our windows and our fingers at our bases in New York City, Central New York, and Vermont. At Geopipe, we want to take this time to reflect on a few of the things that we are thankful for.


We are thankful for the diverse group of collaborative thinkers and problem-solvers that have risen and continue to rise to the particular challenges of this tumultuous year. We have celebrated cross-country moves, new offices, new homes, and new team members. We have moved to successful remote workflows. We’ve doubled our full-time staff this year, and added part-timers, interns, and associates. And as our projects expand in scale and scope, we continue to welcome new team members to join us in our mission of bringing the authoritative version of the real world to virtual space, built by AI. If you're a passionate Deep Learning expert, a pro at hacking big projects with C++, or consider yourself a map geek, let us know!

60.5 billion US dollars. That’s the 2020 value (so far) of the gaming industry in the United States alone. When you think about game development, context is key to setting the stage for the experience. At Geopipe, we merge the best concepts of geospatial and game design with a proprietary machine learning approach to create the authoritative whole-earth digital twin: data-rich, immersive 3D worlds for gaming, simulation, and architecture.

This latest in our user stories series amplifies how Geopipe saves game developers time and money, optimizing existing 3D workflows to be smarter and more impactful. Recently, we had a conversation with Ben Lyaunzon and Ben Yoshiwara, co-founders of the Los Angeles based creative tech studio, BENBENBEN.

Inserting the very analog real world into modern, digital business processes is the challenge that gave birth to the GIS industry.
At Geopipe, we evolve traditional geospatial thinking by building an AI to create the authoritative whole-earth digital twin: data-rich, immersive 3D worlds for gaming, simulation, and architecture.

With valuable applicability for Geopipe across industries, we are introducing a “User Stories” series of blog posts to show how Geopipe saves users time and money, and makes existing 3D workflows smarter and more impactful. Today, we kick off our conversation with Rawle Sawh, Director of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) at Gilbane Building Company.
Rawle, an experienced builder, uses Geopipe to help win new projects for Gilbane, a US $6 billion builder with more than 145 years of history.
