About Us

Big GEO

BigGeo is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vivid Theory. BigGeo owns a proprietary Discrete Global Grid System (DGGS) and all associated IP. DGGS solutions serve the ever expanding Big Data + Geospatial constraints of today and the exponential data challenges of the future.  

BigGeo is distributed using a Platform as a Service model to maximize customer reach. PaaS is the desired solution for highly specialized products when the user wants to offload the responsibility for managing and updating the core technologies.

What We Do

WE ACCELERATE BUSINESSES

The BigGeo DGGS solution accelerates business & industry-specific applications whose needs are geared towards speed, scale, and data interoperability while using off-the-shelf consumer hardware.

Enabling builders to tap into API-accessible products that rapidly solve high-tech challenges that scale globally. The products range from industry solutions based upon 2D DGGS APIs to Volumetric 3D DGGS solutions. These novel technologies open up an almost limitless stream of new business solutions.

What are the challenges of geospatial big data?

The Big Data Problem

Geospatial big data is the most significant factor in the era of big data, as most data today are inherently spatial (wayfinding, maps, identification, sorting) and collected with location-aware sensors. Collecting, managing, storing, and analyzing various streams of geospatial data facilitates the development of new decision-support systems and presents unprecedented opportunities for business, science, and engineering.

Geospatial big data is incredibly challenging (“the V’s”) due to the massive data sets analyzed in the context of space and time.

Disadvantages of traditional GIS

  • Only designed to facilitate repeatable navigation.
  • Thousands of different data sources make integration a bespoke
    challenge.
  • Tagging is generally done via latitude and longitude, making it unclear.
  • Tagging an attribute with a latitude and longitude, since it's never clear
    what area possesses the attribute or how accurate the measurement is.

The solution? DGGS

what is dggs?

A DGGS is a spatial reference system that uses a hierarchical tessellation of cells to partition and address the globe.  It is a simple way of assigning geometric shapes to space to perform complicated mathematical calculations. Imagine a spreadsheet of uniform tiny cells that cover the entire Earth.

Each cell holds a unique “ID” that is divided repeatedly to provide hyper granular spatial resolution storing specific scientific, qualitative, or almost any form of information.

USE CASE EXAMPLE

GeoRedis Web Search & Filter API / Real Estate

The following is an example of how the Search & Sorting API (GeoRedis) vertical of BigGeo can be commercialized by selling an industry (real estate) based or industry by jurisdiction (real estate in U.S.A) license agreement.

The product can be licensed for sale (when built). The purchaser may resell access to the technology, or if the industry partner would want to maintain the competitive advantage, hold it for their product exclusively.

Problem

Traditional GIS solutions make web search and rendering a slow and painful process. They require a multitude of different technologies to speak to one another yet still lack accuracy & sophistication in the end.

Solution

Vivid's DGGS technology allows for big, compounding data sets to be stacked and referenced in a fraction of the time compared to the two notable geolocation data referencing systems (Google's S2, and Uber's H3). As a result, its transformed the ability to access, process, and present data.
