What's it about?

The event will showcase the latest innovation and developments in geographic information in Scotland. In particular, the event will include the increasingly significant role of cybersecurity and data ethics in geographic information as well as more generally highlighting the latest real-world applications of GI.  Scotland’s thriving geospatial technology and data industries will be on show, with speakers and attendees from a broad range of sectors involved in GI.

This is an opportunity to catch up with fellow GI professionals, build new relationships, and learn about recent developments in the GI community, including innovative applications of GI and a closer look at security and digital ethics in the context of GI.

Presentation blurbs: 

Joann Russell (Historic Environment Scotland) Presentation: Practical applications of geospatial data and digital technologies in the care and management of the HES's assets (Keynote) 

Historic Environment Scotland have been enthusiastic early adopters of digital technology for survey, visualisation and conservation. This presentation will explore how they are using geospatial data as part of their transition to a digital asset management system to conserve and care for some of Scotland’s most important historic places. The use of digital technologies to mitigate the impacts of current and future challenges from climate change, coastal erosion and visitors will also be discussed, together with opportunities for research and education through the new national building conservation centre at the Engine Shed.
