In addition to the provision of data, GAF also offers a combination of GIS technology and in-house software development that is unique well beyond the borders of Germany. The company’s portfolio is also strengthened by the domestic and international provision of customer-oriented consultancy services.
GAF was founded by Dr. Rupert Haydn together with Agrar- und Hydrotechnik (AHT) and the Wittelsbacher Equalisation Fund (WAF). 1985 was the first time that services in the field of Earth observation using satellite imagery had been made commercially available for businesses as well as for public clients. GAF continued to develop the business field of Earth observation as a core area of skill and expertise in the company by integrating other geoinformation technologies on a regular basis. Today, GAF and its 160 highly qualified members of staff offer a unique, multi-disciplinary portfolio of spatial information products and services for all future-oriented areas of application throughout the world.
