Last year was a very exciting year for us here at Snowflake. We opened ourfirst office in the USA, kick starting Snowflake Software Inc, we moved intolarger offices in the UK, and we came first and second in the SESAR SWIM Master Class with NATS and Harris. It was year of growth and hardwork right across the business. Which is why we are incredibly proud to be named Geospatial Technology Company of 2013 during the Geospatial World Leadership Awards at the Geospatial World Forum in Geneva, Switzerland, in recognition of the our leadership and contribution towards the global development of the geospatial industry.
“As a company we are honoured to receive such recognition and thank the awards Jury for considering Snowflake.” commented Ian Painter, CEO here at Snowflake. “We are always looking to innovate, to promote open standards and the use of geospatial data. Our recent expansion to support the Aviation sector demonstrates just how our passion for interoperability is enabling specialists around the world to exchange geospatial data in day to day operations.”
