Drone flying in Spain

In December 2017, Spatial Services carried out a drone aerial survey of a Finca in Andalusia (Spain). The resulting data is merged into a digital terrain model including high-resolution terrain images. These data are provided to landscape architects who use them for their plannings. In addition to the high degree of planning security, this method saves time and money.

Weekend dedicated to EO for humanitarian action

Excursion of the Spatial Services Team

On a wonderful late summer day in October, we set off as Spatial Services team into airy heights. After a sunny hike to the Hackl-Hütte in Werfenweng, everybody has earned a break with an impressive mountain panorama. We warmly recommend our clients, partners and friends this hike, which is also suitable with children!

Spatial Services on site in Nicaragua

As part of the RIVA RISK AND VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT project, the CEO Hubert Schöndorfer visited the Kinderdorf in Managua and Leon in Nicaragua together with two SOS Kinderdorf employees from Austria. The purpose of the trip was the collection of data in and around the Kinderdorf, in order to be better prepared in anevent of a natural disaster – in this case primarily earthquakes.

The main objectives of this pilot project are

  • reducing the risk to the children and workers in the village
  • faster and more efficient emergency measures needed
  • to anticipate the needs of the local population in emergencies with known risks and weaknesses
  • From another six children’s villages around the world, relevant data are still being collected by the end of the year.

That was AGIT2017 / GIForum 2017

Spatial Services GmbH was represented this year on the AGIT EXPO in Salzburg as an exhibitor. Within the GIForum2017 we had the possibility of a presentation on the subject – supply of a platform (CMaP) for co-operation with humanitarian organizations (short Paper). The product presentation on the subject Citizen’s cockpit bumped with the listeners also into big interest.

The visit of the state diet president Mrs. Dr. Brigitta Pallauf at our exhibition stand and the interest in our services and products has pleased us very much and represented a highlight on the AGIT of this year for us.

Another climax was the meeting of the Copernicus Academy. This special moment was captured on photo commonly with Z_GIS and Spatial Services on the geo-terrace.

Besides, the first Mapathon took place during the GIForums also in Salzburg.

We would like to thank all our guests for the interest and would be glad about a reunion with the AGIT2018.
