Saving the climate: Geoinformatics specialist from Münster as part of a “Global Solution”
It sounds simple, but the technical implementation is extremely complex: “The combination of vehicle, traffic and environmental data allows us to identify focal points contaminated with pollutants and safety-critical points in metropolitan areas. As a result, we can successfully optimize traffic flows.” This vivid research project was just one of numerous projects with which 52°North GmbH impressed the mayor of Münster, Markus Lewe, enormously. “Climate change cannot be resolved in Münster alone. But Münster can become part of a global solution thanks to the scientific expertise available here and its companies”, the mayor, accompanied by Enno Fuchs, the managing director of the Münster Economic Development Corporation, paid the geoinformatics scientists great respect.
