Creating new ventures and applications with geodata & space technologies

Consultancy Generate more impact with geodata & space technologies

Innovation & Venturing

Do you want to benefit from new spatial data and technologies, or do you have a data source or technology yourself and are you looking for new opportunities for commercial exploitation? 52impact can help you succeed with:

  • Developing business cases
  • Market analysis and (product) positioning
  • Advice on funding and investments
  • Company development and entrepreneurship

Presentation & Visualisation

We make complex technology simple and beautiful. How? Through a unique combination of technical know-how and strong (visual) communication skills. We can turn any dataset or application into something great.

  • User requirements analysis
  • UX/UI (user interface) development
  • Data visualisation challenges
  • Technical communication

Development & Implementation

What sets us apart is that we do not just give advice, but can actually make things happen. Related to the development and implementation of geodata applications we help organisations with hands-on technical expertise:

  • Earth observation and sensor technologies
  • Information/monitoring systems (software)
  • Data fusion, analysis and image processing
  • Technology proof-of-concepts

The infrastructure for satellite Earth observation is already there. Possibilities for applications are endless and we are curious to explore them.
