The Wichmann Innovations Award is an initiative created by Wichmann Publishers, a well-known publisher of professional media in the field of geomatics. There are two steps to the award procedure: In the first step, an independent jury of experts examined all submissions and nominated the top products and services. Criteria for evaluation are “degree of innovation or novelty,” “usability,” and “practicality.” The jury’s voting will count for 50 % in the final assessment. The second 50 % comes by the public through an online-voting process.
The award ceremony was held during the INTERGEO 2019, the most important geoinformatic trade fair and congress worldwide.
