GeoWeb 2007’s principal theme, “From Mashups to Infrastructure,” reflects the breadth, the evolution and the growing maturity of the GeoWeb. This theme acknowledges the highly visible consumer applications that helped spawn the GeoWeb while emphasizing that the GeoWeb is increasingly playing a meaningful role in mainstream, mission-critical applications. As such, the GeoWeb is now a key component in critical decision-making across a broad spectrum of market segments and application domains.
The Call for Papers for GeoWeb 2007 is now closed. Check back soon for program details.

Best practice makes perfect with Open Geospatial Standards
Thursday 25th January 2007, 0930-1530
British Geological Survey Offices, Nottingham, UK
Effective use of geographical data underpins many critical business and governmental decisions and strategies - in marketing, distribution, sales, planning, environmental protection, defence, security, service provision or any one of a dozen other areas of business, local and central government.
All too often business decisions and support systems are based upon what is perceived to be the most cost effective application of geographic information and processing systems. Often they are made with cursory thought towards the reduction of technology life cycle costs and open spatial standards.
A few questions to consider.
How well you make use of geospatial information (GI) to enable your operations? This can make the difference between profit and loss, between effective provision of public services and failing services.
How will you adapt your current products and services to exploit new capabilities and how will you protect today's investments from tomorrow's disruptive technologies?
This Seminar was aimed at all decision makers and managers who have to face these challenges in the coming months and years, it helped describe how to achieve interoperability across technologies, how to future-proof your investments and present best-practise for optimal results.
