About

My name is Florent Poux, and I want to share my personal journey that lead to the creation of the GeoData Academy. Many will recognize themselves in it, and it is filled with mistakes along the way that makes it so human.

My Story

I am Florent, born and raised in Toulouse, "la ville rose". Since I was a kid, I always wanted to share what I learned, whereas it was learning to defeat a boss in a video game, or how to shoot a penalty with (more or less) success. This envy carried on at every stage of my life, and led me to be what I am today: A university teacher. I found a tremendous passion in GeoData Science, which is so important for the future, to better handle the reality we experience in the way we see fit. Specifically, I found myself diving super deep in problematics linked to the art of Reality Capture, and how to make the data gathered on site more usable. This research endeavour led to several papers, journal articles and a thesis, decorated with several awards of which the the ISPRS Jack Dangermond, a tremendous honour that decorate an outstanding researcher every 4 years.

Florent Poux 3D Automation Expert

Now that you now a bit more about me, let me explain why I decided to share this knowledge online. Well, the University is a beautiful place, filled with amazing people and ideas! But for some part, it can be a bit too theoretical, and students can lose the focus needed to develop a specific set of skills. Moreover, accessing the desired knowledge can be confronted to difficulties such as “you are a company => non-elligible”; “you need 20,000 $ for your first year” ; “you need to validate all exams to earn your diploma” …

These motivated me to try and find a solution that could acomodate everyone. But the difficulty was to engineer formations that are perfectly balanced between theory and hands-on knowledge, and to deliver the content immediatly, for both individuals and companies alike. 

This is why I decided to create learngeodata.eu, the unique platform that delivers premium formation to everyone eager to learn and develop essentials skills in our 21st century. I dedicate myself to support it, and to update content regularly, while certifying the knowledge and gathering the latest insight.
