Company

A word from the founder 

Martin Desruisseaux and I founded Geomatys in 2005. It started with informal collaboration alongside our respective professional activities. We still do not realise the sheer size of it. We had ambitious goals and just wanted to reach them.

Historique
The company

Geomatys is a computing development company specialized in geospatial information processing. Facilitate, improve decision-making and predict risks is the heart of our business.

Since its creation in 2005, the company has been involved in Open Source projects. Thus, our services are based on Open Source libraries developed by Geomatys : Geotoolkit and Apache SIS.

Our expertise in the field allowed us to create a software platform fully mastered, interoperable, strictly respecting field standards: Examind Community (formerly known as Constellation SDI).

In recent years, the growing maturity of the platform led us to decline the latter into a proprietary products range : The Examind suite. It’s based on the same Open Source platform, while offering additional proprietary features.

The mastery of the entire edited software platform enables Geomatys teams step in on the whole deployed solution in order to reply to any new and complex issues.
