What we think that world looks like? If we take the Netherlands as a starting point, we envision a society in which we can live and work safely behind dikes and dunes. Where we can get to our destination quickly and safely. In which processes, people, and even smart cities are connected in smart ways thanks to a safe, vital infrastructure above and below ground. Where we work efficiently with information that’s available quickly and that we can share with each other securely. A liveable country, in which we live and work more consciously, and contribute actively to the energy transition. We see a society in which policy is transparent and the government develops and shapes our country together with citizens and market parties.
The genius of location
Location seems so simple. The place where something is. The place where you would like to go. The place for which you have great plans. Insight into the possibilities of that location: that is what location intelligence is all about. What is the height of a particular building? Where are there underground cables? What is the fastest route from A to B? What is the best place for a noise barrier, windmill, or distribution center? But also: What will this place look like 20 years from now if we go in a completely different direction?
We developed the blueprint of our approach over 30 years ago: gathering information and displaying it simply in smart maps. By combining data such as company data, current traffic information, or historical data, for instance, we provide smart insights, better communication, more efficient processes, and smooth cooperation. That is location intelligence at its best. Our approach is more relevant than ever. Sitting still? That’s not our way. Especially with all these new challenges on the horizon. We use our curiosity and resourcefulness to develop impactful applications for a smarter, safer, and more sustainable world.
