In 2002 Cand.scient. Niels-Peter Jensen started the I•GIS consulting agency with two employees. In the years following,
the number of services and products offered increased dramatically.
The establishment of I•GIS
The consulting agency provided services in the fields of GIS, IT, and Geoscience. In the beginning I•GIS also took part
in minor development projects with private and public organizations.
GeoScene3D and GeoCloud
Following Denmark’s nation-wide groundwater mapping, I•GIS was asked to develop a tool for visualizing the geographical
maps online. This was the beginning of the company’s development of geological 3D modeling software, of great use
to the water and groundwater sector. With the launch of GeoScene3D and later GeoCloud visualization, modeling and storage
of geological data became a growing branch in I•GIS.
Digitization of Aerial Photos
In 2006, the Danish counties were looking for a way to digitize their large amount of archival aerial photos. I•GIS
started scanning and digitizing aerial photos. A fast growing branch in I•GIS was emerging - and is still under
development today. The huge amount of archival aerial photos were hosted in the company’s own facilities. Later,
I•GIS developed a unique solution to visualize the photos in 3D.
Increasing involvement in R&D
Through the years 2012-13, I•GIS heavily increased its involvement in R&D projects financed by Danish funds.
Today, the company participates in various national and international research projects. I•GIS benefits from its
proximity to Aarhus University, a geological research institution, and from its close partnership with governmental organizations
such as The Environmental Protection Agency and GEUS.
Today, I•GIS is a highly specialized GIS and Geoscience company that supplies its increasing number of international
customers with high quality services and software. The company runs on curiosity and the courage to create valuable products
that benefit both industry and the environment.
