Details: 

Agro-geoinformation, the agricultural-related geoinformation, is the key information in the agricultural decision making and policy formulation process. Recent advances in geoinformatics have created new opportunities and challenges in applying agro-geoinformation to agriculture monitoring and assessment. The Second International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-geoinformatics 2013) provides an ideal venue for professionals and students to exchange ideas, research results, and professional experiences on collecting (including remote sensing and field survey), processing, storing, archiving, preserving, retrieving, transmitting, accessing, visualizing, analyzing, synthesizing, presenting, utilizing, and disseminating agro-geoinformation. Agro-Geoinformatics 2013 is organized and hosted by the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS) of George Mason University (GMU), with technical and financial sponsorships from USDA NIFA, IEEE GRSS, OGC, and many other organizations. The conference will be held between August 12th and August 16th 2013 in Fairfax, VA, USA. All accepted full papers will be published online in the IEEE Xplore database. Expanded papers selected from the Agro-Geoinformatics 2013 conference will be published on SCI-indexed journals.

Building up Open Source, Open Standards, Open Data research

OSGIS 2011 Call for papers

The OSGIS conference series has a strong international focus and takes a holistic approach in bringing together speakers and delegates from government, academe, industry and open source communities. High profile speakers from all over the world are invited for giving presentations and running hands-on workshops for the conference series.

The key aims of OSGIS conference series are:

1. to hear presentations from government, academic, industry and policy makers on open source, open standards and open data geospatial technologies
2. to provide platform to network and develop ideas for future collaborative work in open source GIS
3. to understand current developments in open source GIS
4. to act as a focus for open source, open standards, open data GIS research

UK Geospatial Mash-Up

Start: 
Friday, 2006-10-20
End: 
Friday, 2006-10-20
Details: 
Mash-up event to unite leading minds from the geographic information industry Experts from organisations dedicated to the development and use of geographic information (GI) and services will share their experience and ideas at a pioneering event on Friday 20 October. UK Geospatial Mash-Up invites technical minds from the Association of Geographic Information, the Open Geospatial Consortium and the BCS Geospatial Specialist Group to explore the impact of dynamically mixing geospatial content. The event, at Ordnance Survey’s Southampton head office, will examine the potential of this trend and the innovation it promises to deliver. Delegates from commercial and non-commercial standpoints with a common interest in helping this technology to develop and thrive will share their technical opinions, strategic vision and market foresight. The event aims to deliver a cross-organisational perspective on how geospatial content can be combined and used for new applications – a trend with a growing profile across a wealth of sectors. While the concept of geospatial mash-ups is increasingly being discussed and explored, its potential is not widely understood. UK Geospatial Mash-Up will bring together experts driving innovation to examine and explore how the approach could be more widely applied across the GI industry. Graham Vowles, Principle Data Consultant from Ordnance Survey’s Corporate Geospatial Data Team explains the importance of embracing and evolving mash-up technology: “Geospatial mash-ups have captured the imagination of a wide cross-section of society, from technical experts to members of the community enjoying the functionality they can deliver. The rise of mash-ups reflects the benefits generated by the sharing and reuse of GI. This event will create a forum of expertise to explore and evolve this emerging technology.” Delegates will consider a wealth of topics including the history of mash-ups, community-driven open-source mapping, new media technology and the development of data mashing applications. They are also invited to showcase their own mash-up demonstrations and take part in group tutorials. UK Geospatial Mash-Up will be facilitated by Peter Cochrane OBE, co-founder of ConceptLabs and Cochrane Associates, Business Angel, Consultant and formerly Chief Technologist at BT. Event speakers will include Ave Wrigley, ITN Head of New Media Technology, Doug Ricket of Google Maps, Ian Forrester, Head of BBC Backstage and Mikel Maron, the driving force behind GeoRSS.

Vespucci Initiative 2012 10th Summer Institute - "Interoperability 360"

Start: 
Sunday, 2012-06-03
End: 
Friday, 2012-06-08
Details: 

Interoperability 360 intends to discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of the interoperability of systems, services, data, organisations, people, and disciplines from a holistic perspective. Traditional notions of syntactic and semantic interoperability offer only a limited view of what is needed in practice, and do not prepare you for applications in the real world. To fill this gap, the week draws on real-life experience in a global setting, contrasting an approach backed by legislation (INSPIRE), with one based on voluntary contributions (the Global Earth Observatons System of Systems or GEOSS).

The conference will be held in Florence (Firenze), Italy.
