About us

LASERDATA, founded in 2007 as a spin-off from the University of Innsbruck (Department of Geography) and the alp-S Center for Climate Change Adaptation, is a research and development driven company offering services and software solutions to different markets, ranging from research institutions to companies and governmental agencies.
From our earliest days, we have developed the software package LIS and offered it for sale. We also use it ourselves to provide enhanced services and solutions to our customers. Trust in our experience and expert knowledge to complete even challenging projects.
