Challenges Faced During the Journey:

They are currently engaged in two pivotal pilots within US cities: Washington DC (DOB), and Charleston SC (multi-stakeholders). In both cases, they utilized open data for new construction permits and ran them through their pipeline to generate multiple AR experiences of future structures at their designated sites.

Demonstrating their technology in a hyper-local context, showcasing a city's actual development activities in its actual streets (in-situ!), these paid pilots are their "foot in the door" to those cities and neighboring urban areas, unlocking opportunities in both the private and public sectors.
