Ecometrica, the space data and sustainability specialist, whose Platform allows companies and governments to map environmental impacts, has scooped another prestigious international award. The Scottish-headquartered company has won the prize for ‘Excellence in Geospatial Applications’ at the Americas Geospatial World Excellence Awards, in recognition of quality and innovation in the implementation of geospatial technology. Organisers said exemplary use of geospatial technology leads to tangible benefits and socio-economic improvement. Representatives from Ecometrica picked up the gong at the Americas Geospatial Forum in Mexico City last week. Ecometrica uses observation data from space, air and land to deliver actionable insights for business, government and society. As coordinator of the Forests 2020 project for the UK Space Agency, the company supports conservation efforts in countries, including Mexico and Brazil, with its technology. The project has just been extended to include Belize.
