Accelerating Innovation in Geospatial Applications

Stuart Martin, CEO, Satellite Applications Catapult


Building and evolving partnerships

The world is changing faster than ever and it is also changing in fundamental ways as we produce about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data a day – in fact 90% of that data was created in the last two years alone. Geospatial is at the heart of this – as it creates the linkage between the physical world and the digital world.

“Business is a Darwinian environment and to cope with fast change we need to adapt and innovate.”
Stuart Martin, CEO of Satellite Applications Catapult, discusses how the company serves as a catalyst for businesses in the UK to take advantages of emerging geospatial technology.
