CREATING A DIGITAL TWIN OF THE EARTH LEVERAGING AI-BASED MAPPING SYSTEMS TO ENHANCE DECISION-MAKING

Since 2013, Ecopia AI has been on a mission to create a digital twin of the world using artificial intelligence (AI). Originally spun out of a Ph.D project at the University of Waterloo, Ecopia’s maps have grown from detailing a single small city to mapping entire continents while evolving from single-layer 2D maps to advanced 3D multi-layer maps.

By creating an accurate digital representation of our world, Ecopia empowers decision making by governments, businesses and humanitarian organizations across mission critical applications including:

Accurate, Scalable, Up-to-date HD Mapping

Ecopia’s core AI technology is the heart and soul of our product. Ecopia’s AI-based mapping system converts high-resolution imagery to actionable HD Vector Maps that serve as the foundational data for decision-making by our customers. Ecopia leverages this proprietary AI-based mapping system to create comprehensive and up-to-date HD Maps with GIS-professional accuracy

We recognize that the mission of digitizing every detail of the Earth cannot be accomplished by one company alone. That’s why Ecopia is building a global ecosystem of leading geospatial imagery providers and integrators to offer the most comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date mapping data available in the market.

Ecopia’s co-founders (L to R) Shuo Tan, Yuanming Shu, Jon Lipinski
