Ecopia is on a mission to create a digital twin of the earth. By applying advanced AI-based mapping systems to mine high-resolution geospatial imagery, Ecopia has developed the unique capability of outputting highly-accurate, comprehensive, up-to-date vector maps on a global scale. These 2D and 3D maps form the foundation of a digital twin and are leveraged by some of the world’s largest governments, corporations, and humanitarian organizations.
This award specifically recognized the international impact of Ecopia’s Global Feature Extraction technology - which has been deployed to map more than 40 million square kilometers across 100 countries around the world - supporting applications that help promote economic efficiency, societal development, and environmental resiliency.
