Seven years ago, Lorenz Meier and Geotest AG founded Geopraevent AG with a mission to use modern technologies in operational projects for natural hazard monitoring. Geopraevent has grown continuously since then. Currently, we employ a team of 20 people and operate over 100 active stations in 10 countries.
We have been able to pioneer vital solutions – including avalanche radars with unprecedented coverage, real-time road closure and opening, image processing algorithms for the automatic detection of surface deformations based on high-resolution photos, and radar detection of millimeter deformations over distances of several kilometers in high-alpine environments. Together with our clients and partners, we have been able to break new ground in many areas and for that we are grateful and proud.
Hexagon acquired Geopraevent as of 1 January 2020. Geopraevent will continue as an independent company under the same management.
