For us humans and for all other lifeforms, societies, and companies, the essential fundamental condition is the health of the earth.
For over a quarter century since our establishment, we have been committed to creating digital-native maps of the earth and providing navigation services.
In Japan, we have been providing massive amounts of data, namely approximately seven million kilometers of driving investigation data; four billion images; over 42 million addresses; high-precision road network data for autonomous driving in the near future; over 800 million various map components; dynamic data, or over 600 million daily log entries to learn the movement of people; and an enormous amount of machine-made data generated by sensors, for the sake of the prosperity of the earth, society, customers, and all humanity.
The new company name, GeoTechnologies, represents our aspiration to combine earth (Geo) with advanced digital technologies in order to create a “Geo-Prediction” world.
We want to help solve various issues, such as the aging population with a declining birthrate, decarbonization, and natural disasters.
Adopting “Geo-Prediction”, or thinking ahead, as our slogan, we will make new efforts for the earth, society, and people, and live up to our company name.
