Tajik trainees complete remote sensing training course at GAF

4-Week GAF training course successfully completed

GAF AG has successfully provided a training course on Remote Sensing and GIS as part of the GIZ-funded project "Technology-based Adaptation to Climate Change in Rural Areas (TCCA-RA) of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan". Three experts from the Design and Research Institute (FAZO) in Dushanbe, Tajikistan were trained from 16 June to 15 July 2022 at GAF’s headquarters in Munich as well as at the branch office in Neustrelitz. During this training course, the participants were introduced to operational production processes and projects that GAF is implementing in connection with climate-related mitigation and adaptation measures in various sectors.

Mohammed El-Kadi - A great entrepreneur and a long-time friend of GAF

We at GAF learned with great sadness about Mohammed’s unexpected death in Dubai last week.

He will stay in our memories as a remarkable and energetic person with a great sense of humour and profound foresight for innovative business decisions, which GAF had the opportunity to share and participate in.

GAF AG und BKG intensivieren ihre Kooperation im Hinblick auf die Bereitstellung von Multi-Source-Fernerkundungsdaten

Die GAF AG, einer der größten europäischen Anbieter von Geoinformationsdiensten mit dem Schwerpunkt Erdbeobachtung, hat eine internationale Ausschreibung des Bundesamts für Kartographie und Geodäsie (BKG) für die Bereitstellung von Fernerkundungsdaten gewonnen. Der daraufhin abgeschlossene Rahmenvertrag beinhaltet Beratungsdienstleistungen und Exklusivzugriff für das BKG und deren Bedarfsträger auf hochauflösende und sehr hochauflösende optische Satellitenbilder sowie Radaraufnahmen.

Mit dem Satellitengestützte Krisen- und Lagedienst (SKD) leistet das BKG einen unverzichtbaren Beitrag unkompliziert und schnell aufbereitete Informationsprodukte aus Geodaten und Fernerkundung an alle Bundeseinrichtungen bereitzustellen. Bei sicherheitsrelevanten und kritischen Herausforderungen ermöglicht das eine schnelle Reaktion.

GAF AG and BKG intensify their cooperation regarding the provision of multi-source remote sensing data

GAF AG, one of the largest European providers of geographic information services with a focus on earth observation, has won an international tendering process issued by the German Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG) for the provision of remote sensing data. The framework agreement concluded on that basis includes consulting services and the granting of exclusive access to the BKG and its users to high-resolution and very high-resolution optical satellite images and radar images.

With its satellite-based crisis and situation service, the BKG makes an indispensable contribution to providing straightforward and rapidly-prepared information products derived from geodata and remote sensing to all the federal institutions. This enables a rapid response in the case of security-relevant and critical challenges.

Cloud solutions for GAFs highly automated evaluation of satellite data for monitoring the complete agricultural areas of two Federal States in Germany

GAF AG has been again awarded contracts for the highly automated evaluation of satellite data for the monitoring of agricultural areas. The services have been extended to cover whole area of federal States. GAF will realize the entire process chain on the C-DIAS Platform Mundi Web Services as cloud solution, which offers new possibilities of processing, data storage volume and distribution.

GAF will be using a large quantity of high-resolution satellite data from the Sentinels 1 and 2, as well as Planet Scope data to check smaller plots.

The project’s objective will be the rapid, accurate and fully automated verification of numerous crop types and the compliance with agri-environmental and climate measures within the framework of the modernisation and simplification of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in the EU for the awarding of subsidies.

Feels like home at work - #likehomeatwork

Greetings from our GAF Mobile Space. Most of us have safely landed there. We grabbed our gear, switched on our communication devices and beamed at the first sight of another GAF-human on our screens.

Yes, „we are fully operational“.

Completely independent from any company-dock-in, we manage daily to deal with familiar data- and Earth Observation challenges.

Entry into our GAF Logbook:

„We find it exciting to see how new conditions change our everyday work. For the moment and to this extent they are of course limited to the duration of this emergency situation.

But they certainly provide an excellent basis for further modernization and flexibilization of our work environment for the time thereafter. We take this positive approach together“

Visit GAF AG and Partners at Intergeo 2018 in Frankfurt!

Together with European Space Imaging, Planet, Runder Tisch GIS e.V and our new partners T-Systems and Munich Re, we will provide a central point of contact for cross-system information about satellite data, geo-information and associated services.

The GAF key topics this year include our innovative Copernicus and service-on-demand solutions, and future developments in earth observation, 3D GIS and virtual reality.

Together with our partner T-Systems, we are proud to present the newly available cloud platform Mundi.

On Mundi, we also show the scope and historical classification of the drought in Europe in 2018 and, togehter with our partner Munich Re, present derived information services for the insurance industry.
