Geographical information systems (GISs) – i.e. applications where geographical data is collected, analysed, evaluated and visualised – are used in the likes of the energy supply sector, agriculture and forestry, not to mention in urban planning or the logistics sector.
Meta-Level Software AG has many years of experience in developing GIS applications that are used in the likes of the agricultural aid sector.
