Details of the Technology Call

MRF is a professional GIS firm that specializes in enterprises GIS solutions, GIS software development, GIS data conversion, and GIS consulting services.

MRF has been in operation since 1992 and has developed a series of GIS/Mapping software products which include Mobile Apps, WebGIS servers and Cloud-Based Web Map. MRF has also developed many custom software products for its clients using the company’s proprietary software components and/or other third-party software products.

MRF has developed and successfully commercialized 8 GIS software products. Some of the MRF GIS products, technologies and innovations are:

  • MRF Web Map – Cloud WebGIS platform with extensions and mobile GIS client – in production. This technology allows enterprises which require a high degree of collaboration between team members The MRF Mobile GIS is able to offer online/offline access to GIS data. MRF Mobile GIS and MRF Web can be synchronized on an as-needed basis to keep the entire team on the same page. This solution has been used for a major oil pipeline expansion project in Canada. It has also been used by many municipalities and engineering companies.
  • MRF StreetView – LiDAR + 360-degree image online viewer – in production. MRF has many urban customers using this solution to support GIS data capture, planning, and fire response.
  • MRF Indoor Map– Indoor map platform with the ability to support different indoor position technologies – prototype development. MRF has implemented this solution at a museum in Calgary.
  • MRF Indoor Augmented Reality– Visual identification based indoor positioning – proof of concept.

Public Agency from Canada

The German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR) is a multilateral initiative for the development of German-Canadian, and more broadly European-Canadian, research and business relations. It is based in Edmonton, Alberta and is located in the TEC Edmonton Business Incubator. The Centre provides support for the exchange of information, development of networks, and the establishment and cultivation of collaborative partnerships in academia, business, and industry.

The GCCIR, along with Innoget, is the co-organizer of the GCCIR Matchmaking Symposium in Barcelona, to be held on November 19, 2018 in Barcelona (Spain). With the support of the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and ACCIÓ, the Agency for Business Competitiveness of Catalonia, the symposium is a unique opportunity for all Spanish organizations to connect with Albertan partners to jointly develop R&D projects eligible to receive funding under the Alberta-Europe Technology Collaboration Fund as well as other funding programs to be presented during the event.

From the Alberta side, roughly 15 to 20 Albertan SMEs (small-to-medium sized enterprises) will participate in the symposium for the purpose of meeting potential R&D partners based in Spain. Furthermore, during the event, the German-Canadian Centre for Research (GCCIR), the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and ACCIÓ will present the available funding programs that both Spanish and Albertan partners could apply to fund the resulting projects related to the industrial sectors below:

Nanotechnology // Geospatial // Drones // Cleantech // Health and e-Health // ICT // IOT // Materials // Energy
