Our mission is to change the current geospatial data analysis software paradigm by providing new tools, data models and GUIs designed for specific needs of data scientists.
Our goal is to provide new, modern, innovative software products and consultancy services that will make the challenge of conducting scientific projects based on geospatial data easier and faster.
During his career of 18 years as environmental / geospatial scientist, Ahmet encountered a number of inefficiencies/problems with software he worked with (and that was available in the market during that time). Software world evolves very fast, but even today’s high-tech nerdy data scientists use state-of-the-art technologies but waste enormous amounts of time by switching software and doing routine, repetitive, manual operations. During the last few years Ahmet developed the idea to provide new, modern and innovative software products and consultancy services that will make the challenge of conducting scientific projects based on scientific data easier and faster.
In the summer of 2015 he met Gert who re-calibrated his compass of life for living in Turkey after 20+ years working in the IT business in the Netherlands. Together they developed the idea to change the current geospatial data analysis software paradigm by providing new tools, data models and GUIs designed for specific needs of general AND geospatial data scientists. Ahmet and Gert worked on an Business Plan for funding together with the Bilkent University in Ankara mentored by Jeff Engell, a US Entrepreneur, and in April 2016 PranaGEO was born.
Our company consists of a multidisciplinary team members coming from different backgrounds, complementing each others’ skills.
Gert has 20+ year of experience in the IT industry and will drive the strategic and operational startup and expansion of PranaGeo. Based on his experience in one of the largest global IT companies which develops and host software for almost every industry, he will launch and expand PranaGeo products in the market. Gert is also expert in the technical implementation of various software products as well as performing contractual and administrative activities to assure customer satisfaction.Gert Kroon
