Launched in 2015, the company says its platform is used by the likes of Cisco and NTT DoCoMo to deliver 3D map experiences.

The company have recently secured £3.4 million in funding to help with their expansion from Netsol Technologies and a group of undisclosed investors.

As a result of the new funding, the company will be able to expand into building a range of market-specific products that customers can personalise according to their needs.

Ian Hetherington, CEO and founder, said: “We have seen an increase in customers and partners wanting to implement our mapping technology as part of their business offerings, in order to better engage with their end-users, maximise efficiency and create additional revenue streams.

“This strategic funding will put us in a position to serve a much larger market, whilst delivering new features and making our solution widely available.”

The eeGeo platform has already been experienced by millions of end-users around the world, enabling businesses to easily visualise complex data sets and location-based services in a 3D mobile experience.

The maps also have the capabilities to analyse Big Data, for sectors such as crime maps to traffic information - all displayed in 3D.

The maps use the latest gaming technology to ensure that the graphics and performance is at the highest possible quality.

This partnership was born out of a shared confidence that this same talent pool could accelerate eeGeo’s product vision.
