About ‘GEO Award’ by CloudEO
With the “GEO Award” CloudEO is seeking solutions that integrate geospatial information and provide additional benefit to the cloud based service offered.
Life is geospatial. Every activity is related to a geographical location and its surrounding. For application fields like agriculture, forestry, transportation and mobility, it is clear that the geo context is crucial to evaluate the current status and take the right course of action for each location. Cities and rural areas need information about critical points of interest like roads, bridges, buildings, and further information linked to it like satellite images about congestion or pollution. A lot of industries could use geo data to optimize their processes (e.g. smart metering). And even individuals use a lot of information related to their geographical position and many more use cases will arise in the future.
