Our Solutions

Organize, consolidate and integrate location into your business

Spatial data is the original "Big Data" challenge. Up to 80% of the information in corporate systems leverage spatial data through inferred relationships to location - addresses, zip codes, census areas, sales territories, and IP addresses. Location-enabling applications, monitoring real-world customer behaviour, and linking location to customer profiles and assets create a massive new treasure-trove of information. Combined with 3D data capturing software and immersive or virtual reality, a new holistic approach to how location-based data is organized, collected, shared, and protected is paramount.Quality, accurate data is critical for every business in order to generate any level of success. Spatial data, its management, analysis, and visual mapping, is necessary to give you and your team the enhanced insight you need to up your business intelligence. Spatial DNA works closely with a number of partners and platforms to help our clients reach their strategic aims.

3D Analysis

Leveraging 3D analysis for planning and major infrastructure changes in cities, designing physical products, and visualizing physical phenomena on products and the environment is commonplace.  With the mass adoption of inexpensive 3D design tools, and the affordability and remarkable capabilities of sensors that measure, monitor, and report physical phenomena in real-time, companies need the ability to properly collect, store, and analyze that data.  We have the tools and best practices for collecting 3D information for interior spaces, integrating building information models and the outside infrastructure and environment, and sensor network measurements.

We automate the development of 3D models and visualizations, and identify decision points to integrate into custom analysis algorithms, enabling your team to support and build capacity through training and easy-to-administer solutions.

Data Transformation

Data is the life-blood of the modern enterprise, critical for business leaders to make informed decisions.  Spatial DNA specializes in the integration of a myriad of data from multiple sources, ranging from computer-aided design (CAD) files, web feeds from social media or sensor networks, and enterprise information systems to satellite and aerial imagery, 3D scans of interior or exterior spaces, and demographic or psychographic information.

By leveraging tools from our partners and other vendors, we fuse data, transform and analyze it using spatial and custom interpolation algorithms, and push the results into an enterprise platform, web service, or as a new stream of data available through a messaging service.

IoT and Real-Time Streams

The deluge of what’s known as the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue unabated – physical objects embedded with electronics, sensors, and network connectivity which enables them to collect and exchange data.  These “things” range from embedded sensors, wearables, and mobile phones, to vehicles, appliances, buildings, machinery in manufacturing plants, and everyday products.  According to research firm predictions, there will be more than 20 billion IoT units connected online by 2020.  From a data collection and analysis perspective, that presents both a formidable challenge and an exceptional opportunity for organizations.

IoT is powered by understanding location, movement, orientation, measurements and patterns.  Spatial DNA can integrate and aggregate real-time information from IoT-enabled devices, detect and visualize patterns integrating location, social, CRM, BI, asset, and other corporate information, and provide decision points for executives and new user experiences for customers.  Dashboards, mobile interfaces, enterprise workflows, and interconnected services are available online, in the cloud, on mobile, on-premise, or even when disconnected from broadband.

Map Intelligence

Map or location intelligence is a critical data source for organizations.  Fast, highly configurable, and efficent map intelligence provides map-enabled, customizable enterprise applications through the use of BI and data visualization tools, GIS, and visual mapping (cartography).  It helps drive better business decisions through the use of location-based information and other data to derive meaningful insight.

Map intelligence is really about how to adjust and display cartographic elements, such as line, point, and area styles, along with graphs, labels, and other contextual information to derive an impactful presentation of information in a dashboard view.  Spatial DNA helps layer and transform large tracts of data into visually appealing, contextual, and digestible information to provide your firm with a competitive advantage.

Indoor Mapping & Positioning

Our PeopleFlow solution is an indoor mapping, positioning, and analytics systems that creates, scans, and visualizes location-aware buildings.  It monutors and collects data on the movements of people indoors, analyzes behaviours, and triggers events related to building automation, operations, and security.  You can integrate PeopleFlow’s metrics directly into your customer relationship management or business intelligence platform to discover trends and insight into your employees’ and customers’ journeys in the context of a bricks-and-mortar location.

PeopleFlow also provides a personal wayfinding capability that enables you to integrate indoor navigation into your mobile product or web service.  You can use this capability to enable eCommerce-integrated shopping lists that are organized by store layout, enable your customers to navigate your campus, building, shopping mall, airport, underground pathway or subway network, or other large area where GPS is not readily available to aid navigation.


Spatial DNA builds Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions atop other enterprise SaaS platforms, including Salesforce.com, MuleSoft’s CloudHub, Esri’s ArcGIS Online, Safe’s FME Cloud, and our own PeopleFlow platform.  Providing solutions leveraging SaaS models allows us to deliver ultra-fast and connected products, fuse demographic and psychographic data with your information, leverage social profiles, and deliver a complete information picture to any platform.

Our SaaS solution is a flexible approach to attaining a highly efficient online infrastructure to bring together multiple sources of data and analysis visually.  Accessing and formatting quantitative spatial data via SaaS is a cost-effective way to mine the complex information your firm requires to extract the knowledge it needs to form a comprehensive view of multiple datasets.
