From the new office based in the United Arab Emirates, EOMAP will offer Earth Observation (EO) services to industry partners and authorities in the Middle East, North Africa and India.
Rahul Sidharth, Director of the Dubai office, will focus on promoting Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB) products by the German company.
For 12 years, Rahul has been an advocate of geospatial products as well as an active part of the regional GIS and remote sensing community, both in business and academia. He holds a Bachelor in Geology from Fergusson College as well as a Master of Science in GIS and Remote Sensing from Symbiosis International University in India.
Rahul Sidharth said, “I feel convinced that stakeholders here will value the advantages of satellite-derived bathymetry from our German research labs compared to conventional methods in terms of quality, cost effectiveness and time savings. Therefore, it’s a pleasure to introduce EOMAP’s mapping and monitoring products to the MENA region and the Indian subcontinent. In short, we will try to empower offshore-engineers and coastal managers to take safer and faster decisions on the basis of accurate data.”
EOMAP provides high quality satellite-derived methods and services to support a sustainable blue economy via a better understanding of this crucial environment. Satellite-derived Bathymetry data from EOMAP are part of nautical charts in the Caribbean and Pacific and integrated into the European harmonized bathymetric grid. They serve the management of the Great Barrier Reef just like coastal managers around the globe. Founded in 2006, EOMAP has its headquarters near Munich, Germany and maintains offices in Australia, USA, Indonesia and in the United Arab Emirates.
