Definiens Imaging announced they have signed an agreement where Geosystems Polska has become a reseller of Definiens Imaging’s software eCognition, the world’s first object-oriented image classification software. The agreement allows Geosystems Polska to sell eCognition to customers throughout Poland. The agreement was officially announced at the 3rd Geosystems Polska User Meeting in Warzawa, Poland, in early June, where Markus Heynen, Manager International Sales and Marketing, of Definiens Imaging presented eCognition to Geosystems’ customers: “Although we have sold eCognition to the Polish market before, we needed a local partner with a stronger market presence and a vast network of potential customers. Geosystems is poised to support us to reach the target end users and to provide them the products and support they need. With Poland’s decision to join the European Union in 2004 we are optimistic that this profitable market will grow even further”.
