A UWA geospatial software start-up that began intensive research just three years ago is gaining significant traction on the international market.
Mapizy Founder and CEO, Dr Ravanbakhsh and his partner Dr Pouria Ramzi are supplying computer vision software to help monitor changes to built-up and natural environments for agriculture, mining, natural resources and urban infrastructure projects.
This two day experience is designed to help researchers take the first steps to understanding the market for their research idea. Through IQ LaunchCamp researchers will be introduced to tools that will help them test and validate their ideas by starting the process of ‘proof of problem.’
