The geodata industry enjoys a booming market. Geographical data is a raw material for new products and services in fields like real-estate and location marketing, the insurance industry, agriculture and forestry, intelligent transport systems, and the security industry.
Regarded as young, creative and interdisciplinary, the geodata industry offers rewarding jobs for highly qualified personnel. Numerous organisations and companies are involved in the German Capital Region’s geodata industry.
Berlin-Brandenburg boasts a particularly favourable environment for that industry, as the region features Germany’s highest concentration of faculties, chairs and R&D facilities dedicated to the topic. As a result, the German Capital Region enjoys a steady supply of highly skilled geodata specialists, while the cooperation between the various R&D facilities provides a considerable increase in expertise and secures the leading position of Berlin-Brandenburg’s geodata industry in Germany.
