Al­though the pre­vi­ous ver­sion was re­leased only two months ago, the all new GeoR­ocket 1.3.0 comes with a large num­ber of new fea­tures, fixes, and up­dates.

We also worked on us­ab­il­ity a lot and per­formed ex­tens­ive tests on Amazon Web Ser­vices AWS with huge data­sets to fur­ther im­prove GeoR­ock­et’s sta­bil­ity and use for real-world ap­plic­a­tions.
