This week in the I am Hexagon Geospatial video series, we hear from Agustin Zalcberg, Regional Sales Manager, South America at Hexagon Geospatial. Agustin’s appreciation for maps began when he was a boy, accompanying his father on road trips. Learn more about Agustin in this short Q&A.
Q: Where did you grow up?
A: I grew up in Uruguay, a 3.5 million people country, in the city of Montevideo. It’s a small country, with great food and a lot of green spaces, if you are looking for a place to relax on your vacations I highly recommend Uruguay.
Q: How do you spend your free time?
A: I love traveling, even if it’s only for a day, I love taking my car and hitting the road. There are so many beautiful cities close to the city of Sao Paulo in Brazil, where I live.
Q: What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on during your time at Hexagon Geospatial?
A: Our partners have several great projects that I was involved in, but the most recent is a project we’ve been working on with Hexagon Brazil (previously Sisgraph) in Bolivia. It’s a BI portal that will be implemented using GeoMedia WebMap on a public safety project for the city of Cochabamba in Bolivia. Hexagon Brazil is working in partnership with Huawei Bolivia.
Q: What do you see happening in the future of geospatial?
A: I see geospatial information as part of our everyday lives, and becoming increasingly accessible to everyone. Nowadays, this information is limited to specialists, but I believe everyone can benefit from the geospatial information. Not only having access to geospatial data, but also being able to process and analyze this data to support the decision making process.
Q: What’s an interesting thing about you that you’d like people to know?
A: I have a black belt in Taekwon-do. It’s a hobby I share with my father. I started when I was 7 years old.
