We believe in the power of knowledge based on facts, so we dedicated our lives to turning facts and data into usable knowledge with added value for customers, but also for the general public and especially students hungry for knowledge, which is why we make a special effort to make our technology available to learning institutions and public sector organizations of higher learning. In this way, we hope to leave a lasting legacy and a global perspective of our precious planet.

"Successful technology and product development is all about perspective and perception; knowing where you are, where you want to be and how to get there. For me, one is a success if he/she can answer these three questions with a resounding "YES!"
1. Are you doing what you love to do?
2. Is it getting you where you want to be?
3. Is it helping you become the person (or organization) you strive to be?"
Founded in 2001 by a group of seasoned professionals who share a common vision and passion for Software Engineering and the art of Virtual Reality and 3D Visualization, GeoFusion specializes in high-performance, high-quality interactive Geospatial solutions. We are experts in integrating, displaying and tracking geo-referenced data on and around the Earth and other celestial bodies, focusing on the geographic, temporal, and spatial context. Geo-referenced data include Earth imagery (satellite and aerial), terrain data (elevation and bathymetry), vector data (political boundaries, coastlines, roads, etc.) and annotation data (place names, GPS locations of objects, etc.). We're dedicated to creating the best Geospatial technology possible and making it accessible to a wide audience of users. Our proprietary technology allows for rapid development of stand-alone applications, applications that run inside web browsers, peer-to-peer and client-server applications. With an extremely fast rendering engine and a superior grid system for tiling the Earth, our powerful software architecture is designed, implemented and packaged for rapid solution generation. Highly extensible, it facilitates creative expression.
We accomplish our mission by licensing GeoFusion products, through strategic partnerships and by offering custom product development and rendering services. Since its inception, GeoFusion's focus has always been on developing its core technology, the GeoMatrix® Geospatial System and on the quality of superior rendering, optimized performance, ease of operation for end users, flexibility in its application and scalability for developers.
GeoFusion technology is used internationally in different industries: GIS, defense, aviation, space exploration, education, gaming, news, entertainment, and consumer products.
