(March 2013) GRAS has always been 100% owned by DHI. The synergies between GRAS and the rest of DHI have steadily increased over the years contributing significantly to the growth we have experienced at GRAS.

More and more DHI projects and offices around the world are making use of satellite based solutions. Therefore it’s now a logical step for us to change our legal name to DHI GRAS in order to increase the visibility of our strong ties to the rest of the DHI organisation.

We have more than 1100 DHI colleagues in more than 30 countries across the globe. DHI is the expert in water environments – and satellite based mapping is particularly useful in water environments. Whether the topic is monitoring of compliance with environmental legislation during large infrastructure projects, mapping of land cover for hydrological modeling or detailed mapping of urban environments for urban storm water modeling – satellite based information can offer highly valuable information in itself or it can be used to calibrate and validate models.

DHI GRAS will remain a separate company and we will maintain our close collaboration with the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management (IGN) at University of Copenhagen. We will remain located in the Geocenter building in central Copenhagen which has been our home since GRAS was originally founded in 2000.

We look forward to working with you under our new brand that will not only give you access to our core expertise in remote sensing but also link to the rest of DHI’s expertise in water environments.

Best regards,
Mikael Kamp Sørensen
Managing Director
