We are working on the central management of data and information related to space. Our aim is to support common operational picture, decision making and provision of modern e-services for the professionals and the citizens. We are developing central spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) in which data access is performed using web services based on open standards (OGC, ISO, Inspire). That way we can support vertical applications in thematic areas like the environment, urban management, cultural heritage and energy.
In our approach we utilize free and open source software and tools (FOSS). Our flagship product GET SDI PORTAL, a framework for the development of Spatial Data Infrastructures, is entirely developed by us and it is also an open source software available under the GPL3 license.
