article Engadgets Australia’s best geotechical software is available from several providers including Microsoft, Amazon and Apple.
Geotechic is an acronym for geotechanical software, software for geoscience and the internet.
It has become a global standard for geospatial analysis and data management.
Geotec, an Australian-based provider, was recently awarded $4.5 million by the Australian Government to help it scale its operations in the Australian capital.
“We are very pleased to be awarded the $4 million for the next two years,” Geoteca chief executive Steve Deans told Engadg.
“It is a significant amount of funding and we will use it well.”
Geotech, based in Sydney, has more than 1,000 employees.
The company, which was founded in 2009, has developed applications for both public and private agencies.
Geodeck, a geotech software that was awarded the US$250 million in 2014, was launched in 2016.
Geosoft, based out of Sydney, is a cloud-based geospatial management solution that allows agencies to manage their data with the help of the GeoTools suite of software packages.
It also offers software to collect, manage and analyze data from sensors and sensors-enabled devices.
Geospatial software companies have been the subject of criticism because they often operate with high overhead and don’t always pay for their services.
However, geospanels can be cheaper than others.
Geoseck, for example, was bought by Amazon for $350 million last year.
The Amazon acquisition of Geosource for $400 million in 2016 will give Amazon a foothold in the geosource industry.
