The winners of the MundoGEO Award # Connect 2012

The winners of the MundoGEO Award # Connect, 2012 edition, were announced Tuesday during the event MundoGEO # Connect LatinAmerica 2012. The award was attended by several companies that came to prestige the finalists. Although it is an X-ray of the Brazilian market, it is an interesting exercise if we consider that this is the pole of development in the southern cone in geospatial matter.

Let's see who won the trophies in each category.

Software for GIS and Cartography

Here are the most remembered international brands, many things are not surprising, although it is interesting as Spring appears as the most remembered free GIS software, which shows how Brazil has managed to position itself a lot.

    Mapping

    A great merit is that of Erdas, which we hope Intergraph will do more integration, which adds to Leica and of course to the company behind this in Brazil (Santiago & Cintra). It is interesting the positioning of Google for services based on location and how the Internet is in the field of cartography with greater integration.

      Another highlight of the ceremony was the presence of the director of the National Institute of Space Research (Inpe), Gilberto Cámara. See photos of the awards and full event coverage on MundoGEO Facebook.

      In short an interesting event, which we would like to reflect the behavior of the other countries of the southern cone where the landscape changes a lot. Although the positioning of brands in the Portuguese market is revealing. It is also worth recognizing the effort of MundoGEO that with this second event confirms that they will be doing it on a regular basis, an action that adds to the Sustainability of the Latin American sector. Just see that the presence of the OGC, ISPRS, Gita and the release of magazines like Directions Magazine, GIM International Professional Surveyor, Geo Connexion and Vector Media show the global reach.

      Hopefully also MundoGEO pay attention to the problem that we already see in the routing of your distribution list, because although it is useful information, all the time it directs to a page that does not exist or parts of the site that are fallen. The hair in the soup that you can safely take out.

      1. congratulations to MundoGEO, extremely interesting everything that leads to improve cartography in the World, I am fascinated by so much technology that I want to pause ArcGis because I am a cartographer with alsada pen (old). from Lima-Peru prov. of cañete.
