2017-12-11 | GISTools has the sponsorship of Microsoft to develop spatial analyses with GIS

Microsoft Azure's Website

Recently, Microsoft has awarded me with a research grant to develop new spatial analysis tools by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in its Azure cloud computing infrastructure. I am one of the 35 fortunate grantees worldwide, which is a very important privilege and entails with a first-order stimulus.

In Microsoft's words, the final selection was defined by a rigorous competitive process, where researchers were betting to provide solutions to the environmental challenges the planet is facing this time around. The resolution of the aid will allow me, first, to become part of a small group of experts in the field and, at the same time, develop new tools able to analyze large volumes of meteorological information by using the data centers of this US company.

Finally, I am pleased to announce that Microsoft will continue to support the research program with a budget of $50 million during the next five years. Thank you!.
