Primordial Releases Crowd-Sourcing Geographic Information Mapping Platform
- Created on 07 June 2013
Primordial’s patent-pending Ooze platform allows organizations to efficiently complete large-scale geographic information system (GIS) projects by paying workers around the globe to perform online mapping tasks in the cloud.
Primordial today announced the beta release of Ooze, a cloud-hosted platform for extracting and annotating geographic features, such as roads, trails, trees, water, parking lot boundaries, and walls from overhead or street-level imagery.
