The event is focused on emerging technologies and techniques that deliver savings when capturing, maintaining and analysing spatial data. Organisations face difficult financial times with spending decisions heavily scrutinised to ensure value for money.  Data collection has historically been the most expensive part of any spatial information project, but is this still the case given recent advances?

The event will describe new developments in  this arena - for example with speakers covering Remote Sensing, UAVs, Mobile Mapping, Crowd-sourcing, as well as providing insight into how some global leaders of data innovation have approached this. - See more at: http://www.agi.org.uk/news/interest/886-agi-scotland-annual-event-2016#sthash.1hbrtr0D.dpuf

The content is curated by the AGI Scotland Committee - members like you, who want to see and share industry best practice. The event is well set to maintain the AGI’s hard earned reputation for high quality content and thought leadership.

Of course, our events are also a key opportunity for networking - connect with contacts new and established. There will be plenty of opportunities on the day to ensure that you leave with some valuable connections.
