At Geo Week, the coming together of the International Lidar Mapping Forum, SPAR 3D and AEC Next, three innovative solutions, and one notable project were chosen as the winners of the Pitch the Press event. The latest products from NavVis, Avatour and ProStar GeoCorp were chosen from 16 of presentations that were pitched rapid-fire to a panel of high-profile press representatives at Geo Week. These solutions represent the cutting edge in reality capture, collaborative work and visualization tools.
ProStar GeoCorp brought their precision mapping solution, PointMan. The primary application of the tool is to solve a particularly challenging problem, visualizing underground utilities and assets that may only have disconnected and out-of-date records. PointMan’s mobile app allows users to connect their mobile device (Android/IOS) with major GPS/GNSS, cable, & pipe locating equipment manufacturers to capture mission critical infrastructure data with unprecedented precision that includes; type, depth, accuracy, depth of cover, and precise geospatial location. PointMan can also create and bind forms, sketches, and photos to any point, line, or polygon and works in unison with mobile devices in order to display captured meta-data into a reliable mobile mapping software, all from the palm of your hand.
Pitch the Press is a unique opportunity for exhibitors to present their products to a group of editors and reporters looking for the most unique new technologies on display at Geo Week. Sixteen exhibiting companies opted to share their new product or service during the one-hour event. Each exhibitor gave a 2 minute brief to members of the media, followed by a one-minute Q&A.
“With over 140 geospatial and built world technology solutions providers exhibiting at Geo Week, there is no shortage of innovation at this event,” said Jeremiah Karpowicz, Executive Editor at Diversified Communications. “Seeing just a handful of them quickly highlight where and how these innovations can make a difference was instructive to our selected panel of journalists, who chose three products that can create value in multiple industries.”
Pitch the Press provides attendees a sense of what products can be further explored Geo Week exhibit floor, which contains more than 140 exhibitors from around the world. Understanding the opportunities that companies like Avatour, NavVis and ProStar GeoCorp are creating is just the beginning of where and how their respective industries will advance.
