The VRGeo Consortium was established in 1998 by Adolfo Henriques from Statoil (Norway). It is hosted at the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS). It assembles twice a year at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Birlinghoven near Bonn to discuss latest research results and to review the actual research agenda. The VRGeo Consortium is open for new membership applications.
