Australian 3D data specialist Euclideon has announced plans to build what it says will be the world’s largest geospatial data platform, encompassing more than 100 petabytes of 3D data hosted on Microsoft’s Azure cloud.
The visualisation as a service (VaaS) platform will leverage Euclideon’s high-speed udStream 3D render technology which, the company says, is able to visualise petabytes of data within a second.
“3D data represents the biggest big data,” said Daniel Zhang, Euclideon CEO, adding that it is “fundamental for applications such as digital twins or smart cities, and we are developing innovative tools and services to help maximise the value that customers can reap from their data.
“Hosting in Azure ensures we have the performance, scalability and trusted security that we and our customers need and also positions us for rapid expansion here in Australia, and internationally.”
“Euclideon has established an enviable reputation at the very forefront of 3D data management and visualisation,” said Phil Goldie, SMC Lead, Microsoft Australia.
“We are proud to partner with Euclideon, and also to explore opportunities for ongoing collaboration between our two organisations.”
The global geospatial analytics market was valued at $US58 billion in 2019 and is expected to be worth more than $US158 billion by 2027 as organisations increase their use of 3D data.
