From the year 2006, Map Africa conference has evolved tremendously with time, encompassing and deliberating on various application areas and emerging geospatial technologies serving the same. Map Africa 2010 is a remarkable milestone that we achieved through the journey of Map Africa series of conferences.
In order to maintain our pace with the changing world and be a part of the transforming mapping industry, we are glad to rebrand the conference as Africa Geospatial Forum and take it to new destination i.e ‘Kenya’. Kenya, being classified as a developing and an emerging African nation with rich diversity is an appropriate venue to host the Forum.
Africa Geospatial Forum shall have impressive technical programme with a renowned array of speakers from across the continent who will share their unique perspective and insights into the African Geospatial industry with little focus on the issue of vision 2030. The conference shall offer an unparalleled balance of substantive information with ample time for networking and socialising. The forum will be built upon the past experiences with the same objective of propagating and promoting the significant usage of Geospatial Technologies as a tool serving varied domains. Through the voices of key major users, decision makers, technology innovators, and industry leaders the conference will examine the programmes, systems, and initiatives that are transforming the continent with key focus on sectors like infrastructure & utilities, Earth Observation System, emerging trends, social development etc.
This October, oil and gas industry professionals from across North America and around the world will convene for the 21st annual GIS for Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference. This one of a kind event will culminate over two decades of information exchange in a unique, increasingly important energy industry niche.
GITA wants you to have the broadest possible exposure to geospatial oil and gas industry experience and expertise. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about a variety of technologies and solutions. Come be part of a diverse networking forum for operators and vendors and broaden your outlook! Data accuracy and regulatory compliance are just a couple of the ‘hot button’ issues that have your attention. This year’s educational program is chock full of information and the successful real-world solutions to today’s leading challenges that will help you and your organization succeed.

The joint GSDI World Conference (GSDI 13), Canadian Geomatics Conference (CGC 2012), and GEOIDE National Scientific Conference(GEOIDE 2012) will take place in historic Quebec City, Canada at the Quebec City Conference Center in the heart of the city. Primary partners in organizing this conference include the GSDI Association andGEOIDE.
With the introduction of the INSPIRE Directive 2007/2, the policy landscape for sharing environmental information has changed drastically. The Commission Communication on the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS 2008) and follow-up activities at national and European levels have further helped to cultivate a new vision for a coordinated framework for the implementation and monitoring of environmental policies. The governance, content, and supporting technologies are the three pillars with which this vision can be consolidated and implemented.
The aim of this year's INSPIRE Conference is therefore to look at how innovations in these three areas have further shaped the landscape of sharing environmental information.
