EFTAS – Geoinformation and IT-Services.
From Münster to the world.

Geospatial data or geoinformation is becoming increasingly important in the context of the digital transformation of society and the economy. The spatial relationship of data can be implemented in an intelligent and profitable way through the use of geoinformation technologies (GeoIT).

We help you to use this location intelligence for your business processes and models. EFTAS is a GeoIT company based in Münster. Customised GeoIT concepts from a single source are our domain. Münster in Westphalia is our city.

Do you know Münster? There are larger cities and more affordable cities. But Münster is special.

Münster combines tradition, innovation, environmental awareness, individuality and that certain je ne sais quoi. Münster is our home, and an experience in itself. As one of the leading GeoIT service providers, we provide sustainable solutions for our clients in industry and administration – worldwide. Owner-managed since 1988.

International.

GeoIT is not limited to borders and we operate worldwide. Important aspects of our portfolio are the production and processing of geoinformation and the sustainable transfer of technology in international cooperations.

We coordinate and implement projects on various scales, ranging from the collection of regional data to the preparation of large transnational data sets.
