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.“
Vincent Heurteaux, January 2016
Geomatys is a computing development company specialized in geospatial information processing. Facilitating operations, improving decision-making and predicting 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 that is fully mastered, interoperable, and strictly respects geospatial field standards: Examind Community (formerly known as Constellation SDI).
In recent years, the growing maturity of the platform led us to expand Examind Community into a range of proprietary products : The Examind suite. It’s based on the same Open Source platform, while offering additional proprietary features.
In-house control over editing of the entire software platform enables Geomatys’ teams to reply to any new and complex issues that may arise on a deployed solution. Gone are the days of finding precarious work-arounds to make solutions from different developers fit together.
Interoperability : Geomatys is involved in standards evolution by participating in each Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) meeting and several standardization groups. Martin Desruisseaux, OGC GeoAPI standard chairman, takes Geomatys concepts to the heart of the standardization process. Geomtays’ solutions therefore benefit from the latest novelties in terms of standards, taking advantage of incomparable interoperability. They naturally meet OGC, ISO and Inspire standards. Standards are becoming more and more crucial for the openness and scalability of implemented spatial information systems.
Innovation : Dedication to innovation allows Geomatys to provide solutions to tomorrow’s problems while offering cutting-edge tools to meet today’s customer needs. That is why, since its creation, the company invests 20% to 30% of its turnover in Research and Development. The effort focused on R&D allows Geomatys to offer a complete range of self-edited tools.
Full control of its entire development chain guarantees the quality of final results. It ensures the company’s ability to meet all spatial data manipulation requirements.
Ergonomics and user experience : All Geomatys applications are designed with the constant aim of ease of use. Each interface is designed in collaboration with the end user. Thus, softwares offer intuitive navigation and allows the user to focus on what matters : the geospatial data processing. Geomatys’ applications are ever more intuitive, accessible and benefit from an ever-increasing wealth of functions.
Quality control : Geomatys’ products development is user-centric. Interaction and exchange with the customer are crucial. This is why projects are developed according to the Agile method, that guarantees the successful project completion and get on with customers’ needs. Concurrently, a robust software forge is used for each project. Each solution is therefore proven and can satisfy the most demanding industries. Geomatys delivers a global offer, integrating all services a client would expect (consulting, software packages development, systems integration, operation and maintenance, training…). The company provides innovative, proven and robust software solutions allowing for ever more consistent and strategic exploitation of large volumes of geographic data.
