OSCRE Seminar – Do you know what you own? Solutions for consolidated portfolio reporting and benchmarking. London, England

Start: 
Thursday, 2011-01-27
End: 
Thursday, 2011-01-27
Details: 

Access to good quality data around real estate portfolios is increasingly important and responses to the question “Do you know what you own?” are increasingly uncomfortable. 

Large and diverse portfolios comprising a range of property types and managed by local business units using a range of systems presents a number of genuine challenges for consolidated reporting and benchmarking. 

Standardisation at industry level is a large part of the solution and this free event will bring together those who share this problem with those who are solving it.

25th International Cartographic Conference and the 15th General Assembly of the International Cartographic Association - Palais des Congrès de Paris

Start: 
Sunday, 2011-07-03
End: 
Friday, 2011-07-08
Details: 

In July 2011, France will host the 25th Conference of the International Cartographic Association (ICA), marking the fiftieth anniversary of the first General Assembly of the Organization.

The 25th International Cartographic Conference is structured in three main segments:

- The conference proper, comprising some 500 oral presentations and many posters over five days, organized in themed sessions which reflect the twenty-eight commissions and working groups of the ICA.

- Two exhibitions of maps, one showing the most recent products from some fifty countries, and the other of children’s drawings.

- An exhibition for the presentation of the players involved in geomatics: suppliers of softwares, hardware, data bases and maps, consultancy firms, geomatic educational institutions or publishers. Involving all the major players from the cartographic and geomatic sector, the professional exhibition, to be held from 4th to 8th July, will allow the presentation of the latest technical innovations from the industry in a single venue, the Palais des Congrès in Paris. With the broadest possible attendance, this exhibition will reach an extensive French and International target public of decision makers and engineers who are keen to discover the latest operational solutions. A not-to-be missed event for both buyers and suppliers of GIS Services, geographical data and maps.

In its organization of the ICA in July 2011, on the theme of an "Enlightened view on Cartography and GIS", the French Committee of Cartography is seeking to combine thematic diversity, high-quality contributions and an up-to-date content. More than 900 submissions from 72 countries have been received by the French Committee of Cartography. Don't miss this international event!

ESA-EUSC-JRC 2011 - Image Information Mining: Geospatial Intelligence from Earth Observation

Start: 
Wednesday, 2011-03-30
End: 
Friday, 2011-04-01
Details: 

The event is the seventh in the series jointly organised by ESA and EUSC, and by JRC since 2009.
The dramatic increase in volume, details, diversity and complexity and the increase in user demand for simultaneous access to multi-domain data urgently require new approaches for image information mining, multi-domain information management, and knowledge management and sharing (in support of information mining and training). This year's conference continues to focus on automation in support of applications and services for geospatial intelligence, for which Image Information Mining is of very high interest. 

Event: 

Data Flow from Space to Earth: Applications and interoperability

Start: 
Monday, 2011-03-21
End: 
Wednesday, 2011-03-23
Details: 

A huge amount of data is already provided by satellites watching to the Earth and the new services that are going to be implemented, including high accuracy and high reliability positioning and navigation systems, are offering new opportunities. However, a general lack of applications is preventing a full use of the present systems and could prevent the exploitation of future opportunities, also in terms of market development.  

Authors interested in providing a paper for this conference, see http://www.space.corila.it/Call.htm . Abstracts are due no later than January 15, 2011.

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

An audience with the President and Chief Executive of the international Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) - JOURNEYING TOWARD GEOSPATIAL INTEGRATION

Start: 
Monday, 2010-12-06
End: 
Monday, 2010-12-06
Details: 

LINZ, through the New Zealand Geospatial Office, is taking a lead role in helping  government realise productivity gains from geospatial (or location-based) information  and technology. Reviews have established that open standards for location-based  information, and related innovation, can contribute significant returns for the  investment. 

The New Zealand Geospatial Office invites you to a focus session with Mr Mark  Reichardt, President and CEO of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). This focus session will look at the international issue of emergency/disaster response, drawing  on OGC’s involvement in the response to disasters, from Hurricane Katrina to the  earthquake in Haiti.

During the past decade, the OGC has earned an international reputation for innovating  access to, and the sharing of, geospatial information. The Consortium comprises more  than 400 companies, government agencies, research organisations, and universities  across the world participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available  geospatial specifications. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions that “geo-  enable” the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. These  specifications empower technology developers to make geospatial information and  services accessible and useable with any application that needs to be geospatially  enabled.

Standards for geospatial information are continually evolving and New Zealand is in  an ideal position to influence the next wave of changes as a result of our experience  in responding to the Darfield earthquake.

  • Standards are leading the software revolution 
  • Stories from Katrina and Haiti 
  • Share experiences from Darfield (what worked, what didn’t) 
  • Start conversations about next steps why/where New Zealand can be involved in  OGC standards.

This is a rare opportunity to discuss and compare New Zealand’s experiences following the September 2010 Darfield earthquake  and look at how standards for geospatial information can play a vital role in such situations. We would like to share our collective  experiences from Darfield (what worked, what didn’t) and take the opportunity to start conversations about where New Zealand can  be involved in OGC standards.

Following this seminar, Mark Reichardt will also be giving a more general presentation on geospatial standards evolution to a  wider audience and we would like to also invite you to stay for this presentation, together with a spatial community workshop on  geospatial standards later in the day. (See the programme for further information.)

Please also advise in your RSVP if you intend to also attend the rest of the day’s programme. Due to limited space, we are restricted  as to the number of attendees and if needed, will run a waiting list if all places are filled.

For updates on this event visit www.geospatial.govt.nz/events. 

For more information about the OGC, see www.opengeospatial.org. 

I hope you can join us.
