With his colleagues they have recognised the potential of open Copernicus EO data early but hit a wall trying to use existing technologies to work with these large datasets. Deciding to do something about it, Sentinel Hub was born. A Copernicus Masters award winning service for processing and distribution of satellite data is exploiting AWS Open Data to provide seamless access to the data to more than 100.000 registered ML experts and application developers, processing more than a quarter of a billion requests every month.

Sinergise is a SME with extensive expertise in developing advanced geospatial information systems based on web technology. It has experts in the field of user needs and system design, software development, database administration and system infrastructure. Sinergise has successfully completed several projects involving spatial data capture and spatial data analysis for customers in Europe and Africa. Their products can be grouped in agriculture, real estate and cloud GIS. Agriculture-related systems include those covering Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) legislation (LPIS - land parcel identification system, on-the-spot controls, control with remote sensing, rural development, etc.) as well as agro-environmental and animal/crop disease applications. Real-estate manage-ment deals with land administration, cadastre, deeds (land titles and mortgages) and computer aided mass appraisal (CAMA). Cloud GIS solutions include Geopedia, crowd-sourcing platform, and Sentinel Hub, award winning satellite imagery archiving, processing and distribution service, which powers several earth observation applications in Europe, Africa, US and Australia and at this moment processes two million requests per week, crunching more than quadrillion satellite imagery pixels from Sentinel, Landsat, Planet, RapidEye and other missions.

In 15 years of operations Sinergise built solutions for large governmental clients in Europe (United Kingdom, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Azerbaijan, Moldova) and Africa (Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, Mauritius), almost all of them still being supported nowadays. Altogether there are more than 2 million people annually using Sinergise's tools and its technology helps to manage more than 50 million property records and more than 500 million EUR of transactions annually.
