GIS Development is pleased to announce the fourth Geospatial World Forum on 23 – 27 April 2012 at RAI Convention Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Geospatial World Forum is a forum for the various stakeholders of the global geospatial community, offering seminars, workshops and panel discussions covering a broad range of topics from technology to policy to user oriented themes at global level. It is an opportunity for geospatial industry, users, academia, entrepreneurs and government leaders to meet, invest, influence and shape the business, technological and policy landscapes of today and tomorrow. Geospatial World aims to bring together about 2500 participants representing different stakeholder communities under one roof to exchange ideas and experiences involving innovative uses of geospatial information and technology in addressing global to local issues.
The theme of the fourth Geospatial World Forum is "Geospatial Industry and World Economy." The event is aimed at promoting and projecting the utility and relevance of the geospatial industry and connecting the industry with major economy-driving industries including energy, mining, infrastructure and agriculture, but in the context of issues such as environmental management, climate change, health, education, and social development.
You are invited to participate in the SWE 2011 Workshop as part of the Cybera Summit 2011 for two days of presentations, discussion and networking to be held in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The SWE 2011 workshop will host 4 sessions exclusively to sensor web topics such as best practices, demos, platform applications, and the future of sensor web. Participants are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on the above and other topics related to sensor web platforms and open data topics.
In addition, this year SWE 2011 joins the Cybera Summit 2011 conference. The Summit Program will cover the evolution of the cloud and open data applications, and how those developments are driving technological and cultural change in both business and academia. Participants and speakers will explore how open, shared and cloud technologies are helping to connect people and resources like never before.
The theme of this year's INSPIRE Conference is "INSPIREd by 2020 - Contributing to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth" In 2010, the European Union renewed its commitment to 'knowledge-based' sustainable development by putting forward three mutually reinforcing priorities in the Europe 2020 Strategy1:
Smart growth: developing an economy based on knowledge and innovation;
Sustainable growth: promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy;
Inclusive growth: fostering a high-employment economy delivering social and territorial cohesion.
The University of Edinburgh will present a workshop, "Shibboleth Federations and Secure SDI: Outcome and Demonstrations from the OGC Web Service Shibboleth Interoperability Experiment."
This edition of the INSPIRE Conference offers an opportunity to explore INSPIRE's contribution to Europe's 2020 strategic goals and to root its further implementation and development in the EU 2020 follow-up programmes.
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.
GI Norden 2011 Conference is the 23rd annual Nordic GIS Conference. Come together with Scandinavian professionals and learn more about innovative ways of using geographic information and GIS technologies. The OGC's Steven Ramage will give the keynote address on day 2. Jari Reini from NLS Finland, one of the OGC's Finnish members, has coordinated Session 4: "Interoperability Data and Open source workshop."
of spatial data infrastructure (SDI) is to improve quality and reduce
costs related to geographic information, to increase the benefits of
using available data, and to establish key partnerships with states,
counties, cities, tribal nations, academia and the private sector to
increase data availability.
efforts of previous years, datasets of various types have been produced
at global, national, regional, city level. Recently much demand on
service and application of SDI has been raised and much attention has
been paid to data updating, data harmonization, and geo-spatial
cyberinfrastructure that aims at solving the problem of efficiently
connecting data, computers, and people over the Internet.
objective of the workshop is to provide a platform for scholars and
professionals in relevant areas to exchange research ideas and
interests, to present the newest research results, to discuss the
cutting-edge technology, and to promote the development and application
of SDI and the international collaboration.
The leading northeastern geoweb industry event will return Spring 2011
with Shane Lennon (Gypsii), Mark Watkins (Goby), Josh Rochlin (Xtify),
Chris Grayson (Humble/ARNY) and many more to be announced in the coming
days and weeks.
We will explore the integration of existing infrastructures using geospatial technology in order to maximize efficiencies and extend the life of these valuable assets. With billions of dollars on the line, we are bringing together the most credible, informed and objective presenters in order to give you a unique perspective on the decisions you face. Our approach is comprehensive. This is the only event that will deal with the impacts of decisions across electric, telecommunications, gas, water, sustainable energy, public sector, transportation and the smart grid. We are determined to give you a 360 degree view of the issues, the impact and the innovations.
GEOSS Workshop XL – Managing Drought through Earth Observation
Organised in association with IEEE ICEO, OGC, ISPRS, and CSIRO
Location and Date: Building 5, University of technology, Sydney, Australia Sunday, April 10th, 2011
one-day workshop will bring together the Earth Observation community,
modeling, and other water management communities to look at issues
of drought and management approaches in various regions (Asia/Australia,
America, Europe and Africa) and the needs of the community for
GEOSS-derived information. The workshop will consist of a series of
presentations, breakout sessions and discussions. A report will be
written, with recommendations for GEOSS.
