Kaarta Selected by City of Pittsburgh to Put 3D Modeling Technology to the Test in Municipal Environments

PITTSBURGH, PA – JUNE 12, 2017 – Kaarta, innovator of the next big leap in 3D modeling, has been selected by the City of Pittsburgh and authorities to participate in PGH Lab; a unique opportunity for startups to test their products in real world environments under the guidance of government officials. Kaarta was one of five local startups chosen from 30 applicants for the program’s 2017 group.

As a participant, Kaarta will have access to municipal sites that are ideal testing environments for its technology, which dramatically improves the speed, usability and cost of 3D modeling. The company’s handheld devices, Stencil and Contour, are perfectly suited for civil projects that require accurate 3D maps of buildings, pipelines and infrastructure – transforming physical environment and location into actionable 3D data on the spot.

Kaarta will be paired with a city “champion” for guidance and feedback, gaining valuable insight and data from the government sector. Additional benefits of the program include coworking space, membership to the 1776 global incubator platform, and access to the city’s network.

“In a city that’s rich with emerging technologies and startups, it’s an honor to be selected for PGH Lab,” said Kevin Dowling, CEO of Kaarta. “Forward-thinking cities like Pittsburgh will find many applications for Kaarta’s technology to track position and model the environment around us. But even more exciting is to work with the City on how to connect and use this spatial and temporal data across a wide range of applications, from planning and design to construction to ongoing maintenance and inspection.”

Additional information about PGH Lab is available at  pghlab.pittsburghpa.gov.
