Jérôme Jacovella-St-Louis is the Founder of Ecere Corporation one of Canada’s top innovative new software and geomatics companies. Using a programing language invented by Jérôme his company Ecere has built an incredible new standard in geospatial visualization and modelling.

I've built the GNOSIS SDK, a high performance GIS visualization SDK featuring both cartographic projections and 3D views with terrain, with multiple Level-Of-Details allowing support for planetary scale data sets. - Jérôme Jacovella-St-Louis

Having previously presented his work in Canada to scientists and senior managers at NRCan Jérôme is now (October 2017) showcasing his innovative Canadian tech at the Canadian Ocean Technologies Innovation Mission in Brazil. Global Affairs and National Research Council along with Consulate of Canada in Brasil have helped to setup talks with potential new partners and clients.
