The story behind Plex.Earth: Taking the guesswork out of civil design

The story behind Plex.Earth: Taking the guesswork out of civil design

You have just won your next project and can't wait to create a model for your design. You have been in that position, right? Then, you know it: the whole process can be a cumbersome, time-consuming and prone to errors experience.

In 2009, Lambros Kaliakatsos, Plexscape founder & CEO, being a CAD manager back then, got a bitter taste of the difficulties designing without having the complete real-world view of his sites, anytime he needed it.

Having experienced the high cost of rework on projects he was responsible for, he decided to do something about it.

So, in case you wonder, here’s our story, as published in the TwinGEO magazine by the popular blog Geofumadas!

Sparking young minds with robotics: Two Greek students share their life-changing stories

Sparking young minds with robotics: Two Greek students share their life-changing stories

What about making robotics as cool for young people as sports are today;

Just a few months ago, two Greek university students, Georgia Kouvoutsaki and Vasilis Kokkinos, 23 and 21 years old, were selected to be on the panel of judges for the World Robotics Olympiad in Thailand.

Realizing how passionate they both are, we were more than glad to support them in their mission. Here's their inspiring stories that hopefully will encourage other young people and especially school students, to explore the magic world of robotics and science!



Plex.Earth is featured on DigitalGlobe's official blog

Data is the new oil, don’t you think? We firmly believe so!

Our new partnership with Bird.i is based on our shared vision to bring the value of the most up-to-date satellite imagery to businesses of any size for better -informed decision making (you can read our joint press release and visit our page for more information).

Corentin Guillo, Bird.i CEO, has written a great guest post on DigitalGlobe company blog about our partnership, explaining the real value it brings to the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry.

DigitalGlobe is a leading provider of high-resolution Earth imagery, data and analysis, owning and operating an agile and sophisticated constellation of
high--resolution commercial Earth imaging satellites.

Plexscape joins forces with Transoft Solutions

Since the creation of Plex.Earth in 2009, we have been committed to changing the way engineers work on Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) projects, by bridging the gap between design and the real-world.

Following through on our commitment, we are excited to announce our partnership with Transoft Solutions, a global leader in transportation engineering design and analysis software.

Central to the partnership is integrating AutoTurn with Plex.Earth, allowing engineers and designers to demonstrate vehicle swept path analyses directly into Google Earth.

By creating and sharing self-explaining presentations in the Google Earth environment, engineers can make design decisions with more confidence, reduce revisions and keep their projects on time and on budget.

Children making their town prettier

Last week we spent a couple of days in Ioannina, one of the most beautiful cities in Greece, well known for its history and amazing natural beauty.

Also, it's a city full of energy. There, a bunch of children, from a very active local art school, put their best to transform the front wall of an abandoned building into a point of interest for the whole town.

Kids grabbed a paintbrush and gave an immediate answer to a very critical question: how can we make our life prettier?
