AgroSoil wins Innovation Award 2023 from Geospatial World

GAF is very proud to have won now the second award for its soil moisture product AgroSoil at the GeoBuiz in Brussels.

GAF has been chosen by the panel of juries to be conferred with the GeoBuiz Innovation Award this year – under the category of “Innovation in Space” (Earth Observation, Remote Sensing, Ground Segment, Space-based applications). It is already the second award for this magnificent product. Last year the product was selected by the EARSC jury for the “Product Award 2022”.

All the more it is an honour to receive the award right at the first edition of GeoBuiz Europe in beautiful Brussels and to have our innovative contribution across the value chain of geospatial industry acknowledged, recognized and promoted.

AgroSoil convinced the jury as it is a fully automated system that provides 4D highly accurate global soil moisture estimates in near real-time, cloud-free and daily at high spatial and vertical resolution. It is thus considered as highly relevant for serving the European Green Deal Agenda which was confirmed through the award. AgroSoil addresses at the right time the effects of climate change such as water scarcity and droughts, which requires precise and highly effective measures for a sustainable future.
