According to a recent press release, “Findyr, the global platform for crowdsourcing of hyper local, street-level data and insights has today announced its merger with Leviathan, the big data analytics platform specializing in analysis of cloud ingested big data with leading machine learning models. The merger, which will continue to operate as Findyr, is seeking to solve some of the biggest location-based challenges being faced across the globe by the private and public sectors. Answering the growing challenges in geo-location intelligence service offerings, which until now have relied on low frequency satellite imagery, Findyr will be creating around the clock real-time location-based data access to critical information.”
Lyndon Oh, founder of Leviathan and newly appointed CEO of Findyr, commented, “Our on-demand crowdsourced data collection platform and real-time geospatial data feed creates the world’s most complete high frequency data map for any location in the world. By joining forces, our ground-level data capture and cloud-based machine learning tools offer enterprises unprecedented precision and a unique advantage in analyzing physical assets, hedging against downside risks in human behavior, and spotting economic opportunity from one city block to the next.”
