Engrain Raises $3.7 Million in Funding Round Led by RET Ventures to Scale the Growth of its Building Mapping Technology

DENVER, Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Engrain, the market leader in interactive mapping technology and data visualization software for the built environment, today announced that it has raised $3.7 million in new funding to fuel its national expansion. The round was led by RET Ventures, an industry-backed venture fund focused on single- and multi-family rent tech, along with participation from existing investors. 

For Engrain, the funding validates the success of the company’s recent strategic expansion. Founded a decade ago, Engrain has long been known for its attractive mapping software and touchscreen touring, which are found on property websites and in leasing offices of multifamily communities across the country.

‘Echo mapping’ in faraway galaxies could measure vast cosmic distances

A disk of hot material around a supermassive black hole emits a burst of visible light, which travels out to a ring of dust that subsequently emits infrared light. The blue arrows show the light from the disk moving toward the dust and the light from both events traveling toward an observer. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

When you look up at the night sky, how do you know whether the specks of light that you see are bright and far away, or relatively faint and close by? One way to find out is to compare how much light the object actually emits with how bright it appears. The difference between its true luminosity and its apparent brightness reveals an object’s distance from the observer.


Measuring the luminosity of a celestial object is challenging, especially with black holes, which don’t emit light. But the supermassive black holes that lie at the center of

Mapping the human heart, cell by cell — ScienceDaily

Ka-thump. Ka-thump. Ka-thump. Though we barely notice it most of the time, the steady beating of a human heart is an amazingly complex performance. Like an orchestra, thousands of cells have to master their individual performances as well as work together.

Now a team of scientists has created the first atlas of human heart cells, a collection of maps showing nearly half a million heart cells and identifying the role of each in the heart’s symphony. The researchers examined six regions in 14 healthy donor hearts, creating a detailed database that provides a new basis of comparison for studying heart disease, the leading cause of death worldwide.

To understand what’s going wrong in various forms of heart disease, “first we need to know what is normal,” says Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator Christine Seidman, a cardiovascular geneticist at Harvard University and director of the Cardiovascular Genetics Center at Brigham and
