The Metaverse is Geospatial

Real-time 3D is transforming geospatial and the internet alikeThe metaverse is the internet transformed by real-time 3D technologies, but the impact of real-time 3D is also transforming geospatial. In the metaverse, the real world and the internet will merge – and geospatial information and technology will be key to that combination.

The ‘Metaverse Ad-Hoc Session’ at OGC's 121st Member Meeting in December 2021, saw speakers from across industry - from photogrammetry and AI-enhanced semantic remote sensing companies to geospatial, BIM, and gaming software companies - discuss how geospatial tech will inform the metaverse, how the metaverse will transform geospatial, and why open standards will be critical for the metaverse’s success.
