Astrium Services' Geo-Information division is a Silver Sponsor at the 25th International Cartographic Conference (ICC) being held from 3rd to 8th July this year at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France. The company offers geo-information services that span the entire chain to clients. At ICC, solutions derived from airborne and satellite remote sensing data will be demonstrated.
According to Patrick Le Roch, Astrium Services' GEO-Information Divisional Managing Director, "This year alone, Astrium GEO-Information Services' teams have been delivering geo-solutions to help monitor nuclear power plants, track floods in Australia, and provide vital data following the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, demonstrating how our mix of geo-applications and services can bring a new dimension to problem solving even under the most difficult circumstances. Where there's a pressing requirement for rapid, accurate and meaningful information, our geo-information services have an increasingly important role to play.
