Hexagon’s COVID-19 response
COVID-19 is affecting everyone on a global scale, which means that we all must work together to limit the spread of the virus and protect the people at risk. At Hexagon, our priority is keeping our employees and customers safe, and we are following all guidelines and recommendations set up at national, regional and local levels to do so.
Through all of this, we recognize that our employees and our customers are relying on Hexagon more than ever. Rest assured that we are taking all necessary steps to protect you, our employees, and to minimize risk to the supply of our products and our services to you, our customers.
Hexagon’s Geospatial division has created public map-based applications that anyone can use to visualize and understand the latest information regarding COVID-19. They are updated daily. Read our article in Geospatial World for more information on how data can keep us safer during the pandemic.
Home Office Licenses Available
To support work-from-home needs and operations during the COVID-19 global pandemic, Hexagon’s Geospatial division is offering temporary “home office” licenses to Power Portfolio customers.
Free Trials and Discounted Subscriptions to Mobile Alert
Reporting problems related to COVID-19 must be quick and easy. In turn, this helps local authorities to resolve situations more effectively. To support citizen reporting during this crisis, Hexagon’s Geospatial division is offering government authorities and service providers free trials and discounted subscriptions to Mobile Alert.
Test Drive the Luciad Portfolio for 90 Days
We're offering free 90-day licenses of LuciadLightspeed, LuciadFusion, and LuciadRIA to provide developers who may be working from home the opportunity to test drive the Luciad Portfolio for free. The licenses are available on the Luciad Developer Platform page, along with two recorded webinars to help you get started.
Google Maps Credits for Crisis Responders
As developers work on crisis response websites and apps to aid the public and in staying informed and healthy, Google is expediting applications for Google Maps Platform Crisis Response credits. The credits are issued in a dollar amount that is automatically applied to your billing account at the end of the month against the cost of your usage of any Google Maps Platform APIs or SDKs. Google also created a special collection of APIs and SDKS that are most commonly used for crisis response implementations.
The Value of Location Intelligence in Navigating the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is like nothing we’ve seen in modern history, but we live in an era where data and the technologies to leverage it are readily available. Learn more about how location intelligence and geospatial technologies are being used to better understand, monitor, and navigate the daily challenges during this global health crisis in our Hexagon Radio podcast interview with Christoph De Preter, Chief Sales Officer of Hexagon’s Geospatial division.
How Communities are Responding
Our customers are leveraging location intelligence to monitor and mitigate problems resulting from COVID-19. We are sharing their stories in hopes of inspiring you. Perhaps their great ideas will give you some great ideas of your own, and you'll be able to aid your community in a smart and innovative way.
