Our Mission

Unearth’s mission is to support critical infrastructure providers in building and maintaining a better society.

Managing critical infrastructure is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Roadways, pipelines, utility poles, and so much more require urgent upgrades - across hundreds of thousands of miles.

At the same time, stakeholders are demanding transparency, cyberattacks are increasing, and compliance is a growing risk.

More than ever, the built-world needs simple, scalable, and secure tools to connect field teams with assets and give boots on the ground the same digital power as their office counterparts.

Unearth’s priority is to streamline field operations by unifying data across a disconnected IT ecosystem and build an intuitive platform where anyone can capture, review, and store data - anywhere, and on any device.

With a geospatial backbone and field-friendly mobile technology, Unearth is the next generation of field operations software for critical infrastructure.

Our story

Born during the rise of drone technology, Unearth’s initial focus was on making drone data more accessible for the construction industry. However, Unearth’s team quickly realized drone data was only a small piece of a much larger puzzle.

After talking with folks on the ground and test driving OnePlace™ in the real-world, the Unearth team soon discovered the true challenge. Built world data is bound by location - it doesn’t fit nicely into a list or a spreadsheet - but there was no tech developed to address this reality.

That’s when it was clear: OnePlace™ would put the map at the center of everything, providing location-based data management for vital industries like construction, telecom, oil & gas, and utilities.

Effective data management streamlines operations and saves millions of dollars. However, without the right tools, the data buries you: slowing operations and costing millions.

OnePlace™ was created to solve this problem. Unearth’s mission is to create a new generation of field operations software: one that delivers robust data and operations management in a simple, user-friendly platform.
