Have you ever wondered, How steep is that slope? What’s over that ridge? Will that face be in the sun later today ? The amount of information we have about an area and how understand the terrain we travel in are both fundamental to the necessary experiences we all want, need and have in the outdoors.
In this episode we speak to the CEO and Co-Founder of FATMAP! FATMAP has built the world’s most detailed 3D outdoor mobile maps. By creating 3D models of mountainous areas, they're profoundly changing the way we understand the terrain by offering new ways of extracting the terrain information we seek. These models then become the perfect vehicle for delivering area, expert and sport-specific data with every piece of information being geo-referenced, context-specific and created & updated by a community of experts.
They believe 3D maps are the future of outdoor mapping and that FATMAP can help everyone get the most from the outdoors.
