Google Cloud Partner – Technology Track

Geospatial Corporation has been named a Google Cloud Partner – Technology Track. The criteria to be named a Google Cloud Partner in the Technology Track are to have created a “Product or Solution” that enhances the value or functionality of Google Maps. GeoUnderground certainly fits that bill.

As a Google Cloud Partner -Technology Track, Geospatial is planning, in a joint effort with Google, a nationwide launch of GeoUnderground and a national marketing program to . We will be scheduling joint Google/Geospatial webinars to run in the first quarter of 2017. Geospatial will have access to Google’s global marketing opportunities and global reseller organizations.

Emerging Technologies

Unlike mapping above ground infrastructure, mapping the underground presents unique challenges to accurately and economically collect underground data in 3D providing both pipeline position and depth (xy&z). Geospatial attempts to develop mapping programs that provide positional accuracy to approximately 4 inches (10cm) in both location and depth.

To accomplish our goal of “Mapping Our Global Underground Infrastructure”, Geospatial is constantly seeking out and evaluating Emerging Technologies involving new sensors, software integrations and state of the art “data acquisition platforms” such as in-pipe robotics, un-manned aerial vehicles, and low-altitude satellite systems integrated with electromagnetic, thermal and combinations of sensors to accurately view, locate and map various types of buried infrastructure including critical pipeline

leaks and other condition analytics. All critical data necessary to “map the world’s underground.”

Market Catalysts

Accurate location and digital mapping/management information is priceless. The world’s underground infrastructure is the last “un-mapped” frontier. Everything else from the bottoms of the oceans to buildings and bridges have been extensively mapped. A map of the world’s underground infrastructure is the catalyst that will drive value in many markets.

Accurate underground digital mapping by Geospatial will drive value in the following markets:

* Smart Cities Planning and Development

* Secure, Intuitive Google Maps Platform in GeoUnderground

* Un-Manned Aerial Vehicles – Various Sensor and Data Platforms

* Autonomous Underground Excavation Capabilities

* Low Altitude Satellite Sensor Platforms

* Expanded Internet - Global Accessibility

* Data Leasing – Private Public Partnerships (PPP)

* Big Data Management/with Cloud Capabilities

* Building Information Management (BIM) Underground Infrastructure Integration

* Increasing Regulatory Environment

* Autonomous Underground Excavation Capabilities
