International Society for Digital Earth & Locate17
Join us in Sydney Australia for Locate 17 and the International Society for Digital Earth Symposium (ISDE) from 3 to 6 April 2017.
The International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), founded in Beijing in 2006, is a non-political, non-governmental and not-for-profit international organization principally promoting academic exchange, science and technology innovation, education, and international collaboration towards Digital Earth.
ISDE also explores Digital Earth as an enabling technology to play key roles in economic and social sustainable development, environmental protection, disaster mitigation, natural resources conservation and improvement of living standards.
The International Symposium on Digital Earth is a flagship event of the ISDE. Initiated in 1999, nine international symposia on Digital Earth have been held in China, Canada, Czech Republic, Japan, the United States, Australia, and Malaysia in every two years.
The Locate Conference (Locate17) is the national conference of the spatial and surveying industries of Australia and New Zealand. The event is an initiative of the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA).
The proposed bringing together of ISDE10 in Sydney 2017 with Australia’s premier spatial conference, Locate 17, will provide both local and international guests with an unprecedented opportunity to learn about the latest trends and applications of the Digital Earth as well as forging new connections with subject matter experts from Australia and across the globe.
