52°North – Spatial Information Research
Advancing spatial information infrastructures to foster open science
52°North is devoted to spatial information research. As a non-profit company, we support open science through open data and open source software (see our Articles of Association). Our major interest is developing spatial research data infrastructures to foster the derivation of information from data.
Turning data into information is the key to making informed decisions. Through Spatial Information Research, 52°North develops methods, technologies and solutions to support the information generation, and hence the decision process. We are spatial data enthusiasts!
Our team of Research Software Engineers and Data Scientists knows how to integrate data provided from a range of sources – from in situ to satellite – and we contribute to a variety of application domains. We conduct applied research in the field of spatial data and we also support open science with powerful Geo-IT solutions from data harmonization and processing to visualization.
