EOMAP opens new office in Dubai

Rahul Sidharth introduces Earth Observation services to the MENA region.

From the new office based in the United Arab Emirates, EOMAP will serve industry partners and authorities in the Middle East, North Africa and India. Rahul Sidharth, Director of the Dubai office, will promote the full range of aquatic mapping and monitoring products by the German company.

For 12 years, Rahul has been an advocate of geospatial products as well as an active part of the regional GIS and remote sensing community, both in business and academia. He holds a Bachelor in Geology from Fergusson College as well as a Master of Science in GIS and Remote Sensing from Symbiosis International University in India. After starting his professional career with ESRI India he dived deep into Business Development & Sales at Space Imaging.

It’s a pleasure to introduce EOMAP’s mapping and monitoring products to the MENA region and the Indian subcontinent. I feel convinced that stakeholders here will value the advantages of satellite-derived decision support from our German research labs compared to conventional survey methods in terms of quality, cost effectiveness and time savings. In short, we will try to empower offshore engineers and coastal managers to take safer and faster decisions on the basis of accurate data.”

Rahul will promote EOMAP’s portfolio of aquatic mapping and monitoring services, such as bathymetry, baseline studies for dredging.

EOMAP provides high quality satellite-derived methods and services for mapping and monitoring coastal zones. Its team wishes to support a sustainable blue economy via a better understanding of this crucial environment. Satellite-derived data by EOMAP are part of nautical charts in the Caribbean or Pacific, serve as a baseline for all shallow waters of Abu Dhabi and help environmental scientists protect the Great Barrier Reef. Moreover, they support coastal managers and engineers around the globe. Founded in 2006, EOMAP has its headquarters near Munich, Germany and maintains offices in Australia, USA, Indonesia and in the United Arab Emirates.
