On January 20, 2022, we changed our company name to GeoTechnologies, Inc.
Established in 1994 as a multimedia software developer, we have steadily digitized various real-world elements that people need in their lives, such as roads, buildings, railroads, and cities; created cyber worlds, maps, content, and location information; and provided them to customers for about a quarter of a century. Reflecting on our journey to this day, we realized that we have built big data that has great potential.
State-of-the-art technologies, such as blockchain, NFT, AI, AR/VR, and IoT, also have unlimited possibilities. Whereas technology has sometimes aided people, made the world convenient, and made the impossible possible, it has also consumed a massive amount of energy, causing environmental problems, such as record rainfalls, typhoons, and an excessive increase in temperature due to abnormal weather.
Moving forward, what future pictures should we draw and in what manner should we utilize technology in the future in order to realize them? We have realized that these questions are becoming significant subjects to tackle.
We think that our mission is to utilize big data, such as flows and gatherings of people and objects, and cutting-edge technologies to continuously maintain the health and vitality of the earth and people.
The big data that we possess constitutes a metaverse world.
It is not true that people move only in the real world. If maps and location information that connect a digital space to the real world are available, it is possible to shop, go sightseeing, study, attend concerts, and watch sports in distant places and meet distant people regardless of one's real-world location. We are convinced that transcending distance, eliminating constraints on movement, and liberating people from restrictions on activities lead to solving all issues.
GeoTechnologies, Inc. aims and strives to be a leading company that realizes a metaverse world. Furthermore, we will strive to be a company that utilizes the big data, insights, and know-how that we possess to realize new values, creations, and the development of solutions in collaboration with the government and academia instead of retaining them only for ourselves.
By making every phenomenon in an uncertain world predictable with the new "Geo-Prediction" concept, we will prevent domestic and global problems, improve processes, and lead the way to solving problems.
We will strive to protect the earth for people so as to fill the world with pleasure as an ESG company.
