The increase of integrated ICT systems, navigation, telecommunication, earth observation, open source data, urbanisation, environmental monitoring technologies etc. has brought up unexplored market opportunities with huge potentials for the industry at large. The space industry has been seen as something separate and the space community distant from the everyday user. Today space data and technology is undergoing a new global change, which will increase the commercialization of space data in business applications.

Geowise is working for the European Space Agency in their ESA Business Applications (BA) by promoting new space opportunities for the industry in Finland.

Geowise assists ESA Business Applications activities and in creation of new projects by hosting the Ambassador Platform for Finland (APFin).
