Originating from the dynamic world of video gaming, blackshark.ai emerged as a pioneer offering government and commercial clients dynamic, high-frequency 3D mapping, geospatial intelligence, and valuable insights, empowering them to make informed, strategic decisions. Traditional 3D mapping based on photogrammetry is slow and costly, and requires a large amount of imagery, while blackshark.ai can deliver 3D visualization for digital twins, training & simulation rapidly at scale for a fraction of the cost with one single image.
