This workshop has become “INSPIRE in the global dimension”, a track organized on behalf of the EuroGEOSS project for the INSPIRE Conference in Krakow, Poland. For further Information, see the INSPIRE 2010 conference website.
The explosion of computing driven location based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies, such as cloud computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications.
Innovative research and application technologies are the brightest spotlights at COM.Geo conference. COM.Geo 2011 is the 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application (R&A) with focuses on the latest computing technologies for multidisciplinary research and development that enables the exploration in geospatial areas. COM.Geo Conference is an exclusive event that connects researchers, developers, scientists, and application users from academia, government, and industry in both computing and geospatial fields. It builds the bridges between research and applications through computing and geospatial areas.

Best practice makes perfect with Open Geospatial Standards

Effective use of geographical data underpins many critical business and governmental decisions and strategies - in marketing, distribution, sales, planning, environmental protection, defence, security, service provision or any one of a dozen other areas of business, local and central government.
All too often business decisions and support systems are based upon what is perceived to be the most cost effective application of geographic information and processing systems. Often they are made with cursory thought towards the reduction of technology life cycle costs and open spatial standards.
A few questions to consider.
- How well you make use of geospatial information (GI) to enable your operations? This can make the difference between profit and loss, between effective provision of public services and failing services.
- How will you adapt your current products and services to exploit new capabilities and how will you protect today's investments from tomorrow's disruptive technologies?
This Seminar was aimed at all decision makers and managers who have to face these challenges in the coming months and years, it helped describe how to achieve interoperability across technologies, how to future-proof your investments and present best-practise for optimal results.
The presentations are now available for you to review:
- An OGC Update: current focus and future trends - Carl Reed
- Standards and collaboration - key elements in a national spatial data infrastructure - Thorben Hanson
- The role of international standards in a free software development network: Case of gvSIG - Michael Gould
- The benefits of developing GeoSciML to the global geoscience community - Tim Duffy
- Making the business case for geospatial interoperability - Andy Coote
- OGC - The Missing Link - Martin Daly
- Open GIS standards and new 'ad hoc' ones such as Google Maps - which to use? - Eamon Walsh
The 2010 O'Reilly Where 2.0 Conference - Put Location Awareness to Work
The first Web 2.0 innovations helped us make new connections on a global scale. The rise of location-aware tools, linked with the growing ubiquity of real-time, social, and mobile, is swinging the pendulum back to the human and local scale.
Raj Singh will be presenting "Shedding Light on Climate Change ".
