Integrated GIS, Remote Sensing and Digital Photogrammetry
Since 1991, as a private company, GeoRas has been one of the first leading companies in the field of integrated GIS, remote sensing and photogrammetry in the Netherlands.
We are specialized in working with all available satellite images, such as Ikonos, Worldviews, Quickbird, SPOT6 and 7, Landsat, SPOT4 and 5, Sentinel, Formosat, IRS etc..
Our innovative technology and expertise are based on decades of successful experiences in the field of spatial data processing, GIS, software development, and integrated services.
Key Projects Background:
Within the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), our techniques, software applications and methodology are continually being refined for the identification of field areas, crop types, landscape features and assessments of environmental impacts.
Since 1993, European Commission has promoted the use of “Control with Remote Sensing” (CwRS) as an appropriate method to check if the CAP area-based aids are correctly granted.
Another purpose of the CwRS is to allow EU member states to assess the quality of their Integrated Administration Control System (IACS) and Land Parcel Information System (LPIS).
GeoRas from the beginning of CAP policy has continually been inventing, providing and implementing its software applications and methodology on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture (currently Ministry of Economics and Innovation).
