The Internet of Moving Things

By |August 18th, 2017|

Moonshadow’s DB4IoT was built from the ground up to tackle the enormous data challenges presented by the Internet of Moving Things. DB4IoT is a patented, highly-performant, time-series, geospatial database engine.

The Internet of Moving Things (IoMT) encompasses moving objects – cars, trucks, buses, trains, people, wearable devices, mobile phones and tablets etc. – that can be tracked and exchange and interact with bits of data via cellular or WiFi Internet connections. Moving objects play a pivotal role in modern life so it naturally follows that they would be connected to networks.

Network connectivity coupled with mobility is the foundation for IoMT data […]

Interactive 3D Environments – Bring Big Data to Life

By |March 24th, 2015|

At Mooonshadow we’re continuing to push the envelope regarding 3D visualizations of big data in geospatial environments. Later this year we plan to release new features that will empower users to leverage our patented Ephemeris database technology and WebGL to create 3D models in their web browsers that visualize voter data, census/population data and client data over online maps.

These interactive 3D environments bring data to life in new and exciting ways, providing a deeper understanding of the relationships between data attributes. Users can literally “fly through” hundreds of millions of data records in real-time, create animated transitions and control a […]
