We’re delighted to announce that the AGI’s Annual Conference will be at the prestigious Royal Geographical Society (RGS) in London this year, on 23 November 2016.
At #GeoCom16 you’ll find us exploring two aspects of this critical question. People – the work of our fellow geospatial professionals, their challenges and ambitions – and Progress: the influence of location data on our emerging digital economy.
#GeoCom16 – Our Progress
Significant momentum is driving the move from paper to pixels already, and we know location data is taking more prominence in serious analytics.
But what impact has geospatial data really had? Which new domains can we still explore, and how can we ensure the importance of location analytics stays embedded in emerging disciplines such as Big Data?
#GeoCom16 – Our People
The work of the AGI revolves around you. As you’ll see, we’re streamlining #GeoCom16 this year, making it a one-day event. This way, we believe many more members can join the discussions on the matters we all care about most.
A programme of plenary speakers will be joined by a lightning session of member submissions - we're looking forward to hearing about the challenges and opportunities for our GeoCommunity.
#GeoCom16 – Event Details
Who is it for?
#GeoCom16 is for everyone with an interest in location data, and how critical it’s become in deriving deeper insights from data analytics. That means retail specialists, traffic modellers, urban planners and even health delivery professionals – there’ll be something for everyone.
Where and when?
#GeoCom16 will take place on 23rd November 2016 in the inspiring surroundings at the Royal Geographical Society’s headquarters, which are easily accessible in South Kensington, London.
RGS is home to many professional geographers and explorers, past and present. It’s hard to imagine a more inspiring place to network with AGI colleagues, old and new.
Not sure if #GeoCom16 is for you? If you’re interested in location data and how it can shape so much of our future, we encourage you to come along. At #GeoCom16 you will also:
The AGI champions the value of geospatial information for our economy, for businesses, and people too. We support practitioners in the industry, we help develop the awareness of geospatial information and all it has to offer, and offer support that will hopefully educate and inspire a new generation of geographers to join us.
Our Annual Conference is the ideal place to look at how we can best serve the interests of our members – and we hope you’ll join us there.
