samango GmbH is an innovative IT company with its own product developement on the market. From the proximity of research we realize ideas in the area of data acquisition and evaluation in combination with geo-data on mobile devices. With custom-designed developments we work out efficiency increasing online-solutions. The major competences are the development of high-performance-online services, as well as of client-server solutions.
Our product 4d-miner makes it possible to record data in the field using commonly available mobile devices to code the data immediately together with its geo coordinates, and to simultaneously transfer the data to existing systems for analysis. Modern cell- and smart-phones allow the mobile collection of multimedia data. In the field, photos, videos, audio notes and alphanumerical data can be recorded easily with inexpensive hardware.
This data is compiled together with the related positioning data and the time on the mobile client to produce geocoded data sets. The data can then be transferred to the 4d-miner server synchronously via GPRS, UMTS, WLAN or at a later point in time per cable. The 4d-miner middleware provides interfaces for analysis and post-processing.
From space to industry
Space technology and expertise are deeply integrated into the system.
Currently GPS is used at 4d-miner to make it possible to record data in the field using commonly available mobile devices to code the data immediately together with its geo coordinates. Later the Galileo navigation system could be integrated.
ESA Business Incubation
SAMANGO is hosted at ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Darmstadt, run by the German company cesah. This has provided the opportunity to consult ESA experts who have supported with technology insights and ideas to improve the system.
In addition, especially the support provided by cesah in relation to general business activities has been very helpful.
