Dr Wolfgang Steinborn Awarded DDGI’s Golden Badge of Honor

Dr Wolfgang Steinborn, a Senior Advisor at European Space Imaging, has been awarded the prestigious golden badge of honor by the German Umbrella Organization for Geo-Information (DDGI). This elite award is highly exclusive and only three people have been decorated with the award since the organization was established in 1994, almost 25 years ago.

The award recognizes Dr Steinborn’s tireless work for DDGI promoting the field of geo-information in Germany and Europe. He is currently the European Delegate of DDGI, and one of four members of the Executive Committee of the European Umbrella for Geo-Information (EUROGI).

“I am very pleased to be recognized with this award for my life’s work in the geo-information business,” said Dr Steinborn. “I have a strong belief in the high value of location based information to the prosperity of Europe and, indeed, the world, and I certainly hope that my efforts to facilitate greater use of that information have made some difference to people and the environment.”

Dr Steinborn was a member of the DDGI advisory board at its founding, and has been a committed representative ever since. He has campaigned throughout Europe, and been a manager of the DDGI board’s activities and its diverse commissions. The golden badge of honor recognizes that through his efforts, Dr Steinborn has shaped the thoughts and activities of the organization, and commemorates him for it.

“My sincere congratulations go to Wolfgang for this well-deserved accolade,” said Adrian Zevenbergen, Managing Director of European Space Imaging. “We are fortunatelucky to have his wisdom knowledge and experience assistingguiding our activities in this dynamic industry.”

The previous recipients of the honor include DDGI’s Founding President Klaus Barwinski and Prof. Gerd Buziek, the Director of Communications and Public Affairs at Esri Germany.
