Hexagon Geospatial Announces Plans to Relocate Headquarters to Valles Marineris

0

At HxGN LIVE 2015 in Las Vegas, Hexagon Geospatial will announce its plans to relocate its corporate headquarters to the exquisitely scenic and peaceful Valles Marineris. Valles Marineris, a strikingly dramatic system of canyons that stretches just south of the equator of Mars, is an ideal place for corporate headquarters. The official launch will take place at HxGN LIVE in Las Vegas, so be sure to register today! Use the code “APRIL-5533” to register for only $699.

Hexagon Geospatial is always looking to make sense of the dynamically changing world—whether that world be Earth or Mars. This provides a tremendously interesting chance for us to truly get in on the beginning stages as we plan for and monitor the changes which will begin taking place on Mars. For years, our software has contained within it the necessary projections, spheroids and datums to perform highly accurate Martian analysis. As a matter of fact, we used the tools within the Power Portfolio to perform site selection analysis that led us to select the Southern lip of the Valles Marineris for its stunning views as well as sustainable location. —Chief Scientist Veronica  Deimos, Mars Feasibility Team

Valles Marineris

The Valles Marineris, a 4,000 km long canyon is long enough to stretch from New York City to Los Angeles. At places, it reaches 120 km across and 7 km in depth. This amazing phenomenon provides incredible vistas and intriguing glimpses into the Martian landscape.

The Mars project is very interesting to us. As people begin to colonize Mars, they are going to need access to powerful geographic software to help them plan, and we are ready to provide solutions for them. Our goals have always been to bring powerful technology to people in a way that allows them to solve their unique problems with simplicity. On Mars they will have to solve their geospatial problems quickly and efficiently, and we can provide that for them.  —Dr. Bruno Phobos, Mars Planning Chairman.

John Carter, employee liaison for the Building Analysis for Research Station & Observatory On Mars had more to add. “Personally, I can say that this is tremendously exciting and I’m glad that the Valles Marineris site was chosen. This is definitely My Favorite Martian landscape. I especially love the chance to get some sensors up so we can begin to analyze the Martian landscape for signs of water erosion. Very exciting!”

There are, of course, some logistics to work out, with some employees expressing concerns over the commute. On balance, though, the Valles Marineris is a tremendous opportunity to extend the reach of the Power Portfolio outside of our current sphere and utilize our tools in ways that most people have never considered. Innovation is, after all, what Hexagon Geospatial wants to encourage.
