We can help governments, donor agencies, and international financial institutions evaluate and plan geomatics/geospatial, space, and remote sensing programs. We can help them decide how best to formulate space, geomatics, remote sensing and related programs to meet the individual needs of aid-receiving countries - be it to develop basic information products such as reconnaissance maps, import replacement, industry development, infrastructure re-development, reduction of government spending, or program re-focusing.
