Founder and Principal Technologist, Geo.Geo, United Kingdom
This geospatial visionary works at the intersection of GIS and smart cities, but Paul Georgie considers himself to be a lifelong geographer.
His background is in international development, and at Geo.Geo the main focus is emergency and disaster response.
Geo.Geo lowers the barriers of access for governments, organizations, and communities to adopt and benefit from the latest mapping tools. It uses GIS, remote sensing, and social sciences to drive mapping technologies for a variety of global sectors, including international development, smart cities, and the low-carbon economy.
Paul and his company have earned awards for a climate resilience program; a paper called “Modern Mapping Solutions for a Future City”; having the first fixed-wing UAS team to attain the UK’s CAA approval for rural and urban operations; and creating the first global data portal for community-owned renewable energy.
