Prior to GeoCloud, from 2008 until 2017, I worked as VP EMEA and Chief Scientist of VisionMap.

From 1992 until 2008, I worked as Chief of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing and National GIS Manager at the Survey of Israel (SOI), and as a guest lecturer at the Israel Institute of Technology.

I have more than 30 years of experience in photogrammetry, aerial survey, mapping, GIS, standardization, mapping, GIS products development, software development and cloud computing. I published more than 100 articles and prepared more than 20 national technical instructions, reports, standards, and specifications. I am also a member of the editorial boards of several journals in the field of Geodesy and Geoinformation.

I served as Vice President of ILSPRS (Israel Society of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing), a member of IIAC (ISPRS Industry Advisory Committee), and a member of ALSI (Association of Licensed Surveyors in Israel). I served as chairman in the Commission on the GIS Standardization of the Standards Institution of Israel, the Standardization Group of the Inter Ministry Commission on Geoinformation, and the Commission on the Technical Standards and Specifications for Photogrammetry and Topographic Mapping in the Survey of Israel.

I graduated the Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography (MIIGAiK) with a Master’s degree in aerial survey and photogrammetry. I obtained a Ph.D. in photogrammetry from the Moscow State Research Institute of Geodesy, Aerial Survey, and Cartography (CNIIGaiK).
