Geoawesome Meetup #22: Precision Agriculture & Smart Farming

We live in a digitalised world where every day, drones, autonomous tractors, hundreds of Earth Observation satellites collect data about our planet and our farmlands.

  • How can the industry extract actionable intelligence from these petabytes of data to enable precision agriculture and smart farming technologies?
  • How can AI and ML experts help farmers predict yield, reduce water usage, protect crops and automate farm operations?

We teamed up with 4 experts from the industry to learn from their experience and to understand the latest trends in the industry.

Join us to learn all about it from the top industry experts. You can register for this free event via demio or via LinkedIn.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I ensure my company is considered and potentially makes it to the 2023 list? 

As the age old saying goes ‘out of sight, out of mind’ – if you don’t nominate your company then its very likely that your company isn’t considered. Therefore the best chance you have to ensure that your company makes it to the 2023 list is to ensure that you or a member of your company answer a few questions via our form.

Who decided the list? What was the process?

The list was decided based on the votes by 12 Geospatial experts from all over the world.

Companies nominated themselves via the online form. In addition to the official nominations, each panelist was also empowered to make further recommendations. Nominations and the company database used for 2019 and 2021 were also considered. A final pool of companies was complied and the experts reviewed all the details and cast their individual votes. The individual votes were tallied and the final global top 100 companies list was published.

Each panelist brings a unique perspective and has her/his strength in a specific area of the geospatial industry. Therefore each panelist was free to review the list through their unique prism. Company size, revenue, growth, X-factor, positive impact on society, diversity, longevity, open source contributions, and many more factors were considered. We are aware that one size doesn’t fit all.

Here are the experts who decided the 2022 list:

  • Dr. Nadine Alameh, CEO of Open Geospatial Consortium
  • Denise McKenzie, Chair of the Association for Geographic Information in UK
  • Justyna Redelkiewicz, Head of Section Consumer Solutions, Market and Technology at the European Union Agency for Space Programme (EUSPA)
  • Carly Morris, Head of Geovation at Ordnance Survey
  • Eldrige de melo, Director at Satellogic
  • Olivia Powell, International Lead at The Geospatial Commission in Cabinet Office and Co- founder and Director at Women+ in Geospatial
  • Sives Govender, Research Group Leader, CSIR, South Africa and Co- founder and coordinator of Environmental Information System-Africa
  • Jonathan Neufeld, CEO of TECTERRA
  • Osamu Ochiai, Senior Engineer, Manager for Satellite Applications and Operation Center at Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency
  • Ng Siau Yong, Director of GeoSpatial and Data Division & Chief Data Officer at the Singapore Land Authority
