what3words is an easy way to find and share exact locations. Every 3 metre square has been given a unique combination of three random words: a what3words address. Now you can find, share and navigate to precise locations using three simple words.
Geocoding customer addresses can be difficult. In addition, many assets do not have an address. On sites with multiple buildings, one address can cover the whole property. Now that every 3m in the world has a 3 word address, users can easily communicate the location of assets, improving efficiency and profitability.

ODIQ, a Google Maps based platform developed by Localyse to the rescue for cut-through traffic situations.
Cities and municipalities often ask us for objective data: travel times, bottlenecks and Origin-Destination analysis. The most common question is related to identifying cut-through traffic. That’s why we have added a new feature to the ODIQ platform, called the ‘Branching Analysis’.
Cut-through traffic is a major issue for cities. When the main roads get crowded during rush hour, drivers choose all sorts of different routes: through the city center or suburban areas. This causes significant nuisance. Examples are:
- Traffic jams
- Excessive speed
- Potential conflicts in narrow streets
- Noise and air pollution
It is important to understand why people take alternative routes at different times of the day. Curious how you set up a Branching Analysis and a use case? Come have a look at our demo.
Interested to discover how we combine multiple data sources: Floating Car Data, Telecom, on-street counts and spending behavior? Come talk to our experts at the Localyse booth#44.

Open Maps For Europe – a key for unlocking the value of authoritative geospatial information Authoritative public sector information is a key building block for digital transformation and the realisation of a dynamic digital society. By providing an easy-to-use online user interface for discovering, viewing, licensing and downloading open datasets, the Open Maps For Europe project addresses the challenges of accessing trusted geospatial data from multiple official sources. In doing so, it unlocks the value of official geospatial information to support Digital Europe, the Open Data Directive, and the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Directive.
As of January 2022, almost 1,000 users have accessed the datasets, which include topographic and height data, imagery, and an Open Gazetteer service, via the interface developed by IDOX. All are available under a single open data licence to ensure a level playing field for all users, and will also be discoverable and available via the European Data Portal. The value of the reuse of open geospatial public sector information is demonstrated in a series of case studies. Open Maps for Europe is coordinated by EuroGeographics in partnership with the National Geographic Institute (NGI) Belgium and co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.

Our geospatial World is 3D: 3D-Stereo interaction on the PluraView stereoscopic desktop
“VR, AR – XR” – we are all aware of the highly advanced ways of visualizing 3D geospatial datasets and their benefits in fully immersive environments or augmented reality (AR) scenarios. Whole cities are represented by textured 3D models in sub-5cm resolution and entire regions by ALS point clouds with more than 200 points per sq.m.! Yet, there is a technology gap in how we work with 3D datasets: we still use flat, monoscopic 2D desktop screens, essentially 1960’s computer-terminal technology.
The stereoscopic 3D PluraView systems support over 300 stereo-enabled industry applications (www.3d-pluraview.com), covering BIM, AEC and GIS with Esri ArcGIS Pro as the market leader. Standard data interaction by mouse & keyboard can now be productively extended by high-precision 3D photogrammetry controllers, rapid, intuitive navigation and positioning by joy-stick devices, even VR interaction. Our professional desktop environment for 3D data preparation, editing and QC is key to the geospatial VR & AR future.
