PIXXIM with headquarters in Marseille, France is a highly advanced company in the area of virtual representation of large new infrastructures like roads, railways, urban transportation, etc.

The two Founders of PIXXIM came from the simulation world: J.P. NOELL prev. Team leader Software tools for 3D terrain databases for Flight and Terrain simulators at THOMSON T&S (THALES today), and J. TALIN prev. in charge of the database modelling team in a company mostly involved in aerial simulation for DASSAULT AVIATION, EUROCOPTER, etc.

PIXXIMs customers are mostly governmental (for road and railway management), large urbanization projects (for public transportation), and some of the biggest French "bureaux d'études" like INGEROP, SETEC, SCETAUROUTE. The projects at PIXXIM involve advanced visualization processes, based upon PC hardware. The deliveries to customers include databases and visualization software in order to achieve virtual real time navigation within the models.

The PIXXIM visualization software, called "KALAOS" that is based upon the 3D libraries of Gizmo3D, allows the user to work interactively with the database. The main mission of PIXXIMs’ services is public communication and providing “Decision Support” tools (the 3D real time database assists engineers to make the best technical decisions).
