The 25th annual conference of the Geoscience Information Consortium (GIC) is held at the Geological Survey of Slovenia (6th floor), Dimiceva ulica 14, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012 is the forerunner in providing cutting edge Defense Geospatial intelligence technologies. The ever evolving world of Geospatial Intelligence is changing the way in which the Earth's surface and atmosphere is being perceived. New advancements in Defense technologies are paving the way for interoperability and integration for key decision makers. GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012 will bring together military, government and defense manufacturers to resolve challenges in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and situational awareness.
GDI APAC brings together the best speakers in this fast growing GEOINT region, giving attendees an unprecedented opportunity to network with peers and current and potential clients in the defence and security sectors.
Carl Reed, the OGC's CTO and Executive Director of the Standards Program, will speak about "Democratising Standards: Moving Towards Interoperability," and will address these topics:
- Assessing the status of interoperability in the field of geographic information
- Supporting interoperable solutions that “geo-enable” the web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT
- Why do we need open standards? Discussing the move towards enterprise GIS
The annual Geospatial Intelligence Middle East will return to Abu Dhabi for its 6th edition. Year on year the event has grown in stature and this year will be no different. With a renewed focus on military GeoInt challenges Geospatial Intelligence Middle East will examine how Geospatial Intelligence has become a crucial element of C4ISR and overall military strategy, implications for future national security strategies and how this all fits into an overall multi-agency geospatial strategy.
The price to attend is $85, which is payable at the time of registration.

The objective of this webinar is to educate the geospatial community (users
and executive management) on some of the key legal issues associated with
collecting, using and licensing geospatial data. Attendees will get a
lawyer's perspective on several areas of law, including privacy,
intellectual property, licensing, data quality and liability that impact
* Kevin Pomfret, Attorney, LeClair Ryan LLP, Executive Director, Center
for Spatial Law and Policy; OGC Board Member
* Kara John, Senior Vice President, Intellectual Property & Privacy,
* Peter Schreiber, Attorney and Lead Counsel, ESRI
This online event will last for 90 minutes, with a substantial amount of
time dedicated to a "live" question and answer session for attendees.
Attendees will learn:
* What issues a lawyer considers important with respect to protecting
intellectual property rights
* How lawyers deal with issues such as privacy and liability in a
* How a license agreement can be used to allocate business and legal
risk associated with a transaction
* What the key provisions are for a spatial data license agreement
* What are the legal ramifications of location-based services
Service-Oriented Software Research Network (SOSoRNET) and Centre for Geospatial Science, University of Nottingham would like to invite you to join us for a two day workshop on geospatial web services which will be held at the University of Nottingham. Participation in the workshop is free but limited to 50 people on first come registration basis.
The key aims of this workshop are:
- to hear presentations from leading academic and industry players on their research on geospatial web services technology
- to network and develop ideas for future collaborative research in geospatial web services
- to understand current developments in geospatial web services with focus on generalization and schematization research.

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.
