Geckomatis was founded because of the fact that every existing solution in geo-information data faces a serious issue: the data is growing obsolete very fast. With update cycles of 1 year and longer, this is unacceptable in an ever evolving world. The fact of the matter is that it is prohibitively expensive to produce geo-information data. This is due to the production process: normal practice is to outfit a vehicle with very costly hi-precision equipment that has to be operated by trained operators. Geckomatics eliminates the need for these vehicles and staff. Instead, we have developed a fully integrated system that produces geo-information data. Our non-intrusive mapping hardware is mounted on top of vehicles of customers. Our mapping system is intuitive to use and is flexible and scalable, so there is no limit on the amount of data it can produce. You can map a small area or a whole city or even a country if you need to.
But it does not stop there. We have redesigned the way map...

But it does not stop there. We have redesigned the way maps are made from the ground up built on AI. We automate labor intensive tasks like asset inventories and measurements. Our system is eg capable of creating a complete inventory of trees in a city including their measurements - pretty spectacular as the status quo for this is hardly better than pen and paper. We can map road signs, analyse pavement quality and more in a vastly more efficient way than incumbent methods

Geckomatics is probably the missing link in effective - close to public - politics as having the full set of data is crucial for public service. For the same reasons the ideal partner for companies who are delivering a geo sensitive service to a large customer base. Data is the new oil. Correct data is having the correct fuel for your machine.

I had the opportunity to collaborate with the startup in the SME Instruments program. A team with extreme motivation and technical competence and able to apply an innovative business model for different outlet markets (cities, ports, transport services). The application of AI algorithms to urban mapping is an extremely innovative solution that can revolutionize the way we plan our activities. The transformation of the idea into an integrated solution (product/service) was carried out in an impeccable manner

I had the pleasure of working with Bert and the company as business coach for the European Commission. I can say that the idea is fantastic and the team has put in place a perfect execution to turn the idea into a product. Congratulations.

Alexander Siera Co-Founder at SpotCrowd

Hello, I had the pleasure of working with Bert and Arun from Geckomatics. They have worked out a brilliant concept and have good insights in how to execute their idea. They see the big picture and they have the determination to succeed. I recommend them highly and if you get to know them you will understand what I mean. I have encountered and reviewed a lot of startup companies. Geckomatics is a name to remember. Good team, innovative products, scalability. They have it all. regards, Alexander Siera, (investor - serial entrepreneur)

Geckomatics has been included in Startup Europe Partnership (SEP) Portfolio and admitted to SEP Mathcing in Paris (last December). Cool company with very interesting solution.

Nadira Azermai Founder/Ceo at ScriptBook

Bert Cattoor & Arun Luykx are exeptional people with passion and drive.
They embody what Geckomatics is about. Any program should be delighted to have them on board. They breathe ambition and vision. With Geckomatics geo-location data will change forever.

Omar Mohout Advisor at Vivadrive

Geckomatics is potentially a disruptive startup that can change the utilities landscape levering video & big data. The Geckomatics team is very experienced, all founders have a entrepreneurial & technology track record. I highly recommend this team for the program.

Luc De Vos Advisor at Geckomatics

Bert is a no-nonsense serial entrepreneur with a deep understanding of the market and business dynamics. I have learned to know and appreciate Bert as a very driven individual who is pleasant to work with and of the highest integrity and ethics. Geckomatics addresses a real pitfall in geo-location data, which is its relatively fast decay. This vision and the way to solve it runs in front of major disruptors like Google maps and all other projects in this space.
