From the beginning of July SI Imaging Services (SIIS) have started the commercial selling of the KOMPSAT-3A satellite data. The KOMPSAT-3A was launched in March 2015 joining the KOMPSAT satellite family (KOMPSAT-2, KOMPSAT-3, KOMPSAT-5) and it grants an outstanding very high resolution data of 40 cm.
The free Geomatica licences have been started to be distributed to the universities for fall semester of 2016-17. There was a high interest about the Canadian PCI Inc. and the GeoData Ltd. offered free licence option: instructors and researchers of 12 universities and colleges were included in the program, which begins in this fall semester. During the summer the instructors and researchers can get knowledge of the software functionality with the handovered licences, and also they can work out how Geomatica can be used in Earth observation (EO) & GIS education and research.
GeoData Services as authorised reseller of Canadian PCI Geomatica products agreed with the Markham based company that Hungarian universities can use Geomatica free licenses for their curriculum based higher education and Phd research. PCI Geomatica is the professional toolkit of the aerial and satellite images and data, and the related raster and vector operations. Now the newest desktop, server and cloud solutions will be available for the Hungarian universities.

It was also possible to establish direct relations to the future projects. At the meeting GeoData Services explained our most important experiences of the projects about earth observation.
