GeoCom is our annual conference, but it’s more than that: it’s a day of industry insights that you’ll refer to for months. Catching up with colleagues, making new contacts, you’ll hear a range of speakers talking about emerging geospatial technologies, policies, strategies and deployments, AND you’ll get insights from experts in other fields too.

 #GeoCom17 – the event for AGI members that’s open to all

GeoCom17 was held at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington, London, on 26th October.  The theme  was an important one – it’s Smart Geospatial – and this was the outline programme for the day:

Breakfast Briefing

Registration - 9am - and Welcome

Morning sessions:

  • Talking Technology 
    – what’s driving change, why are we all talking about ‘Smart’ technology and more-connected data? We’ll be looking at influences and exploring what’s shaping the need for, delivery of, and use of geospatial...
  • Perpetual Policies
    – staying ahead, being competitive, responding to change. Our speakers will be giving us real world examples of policy changes that impact our industry, and others …

Lunch - 13:00pm - catch-up with colleagues

  • Future-proofing 
    – it’s clear the future will be focused heavily on connectivity – on Smart Geospatial – so what should we all be doing today? This is the session from which we'll be encouraging your feedback - what will you take away from #GeoCom17?!

GeoBeers - 5pm

 

 

 

Who's speaking at #GeoCom17?

At every GeoCom, we like to invite well-known speakers - individuals, some from the public sector, some from the private sector, all with insightful answers (and questions) about the use of geospatial in a ‘smarter’ and more connected world.

We know that geospatial technology has millions of applications in different fields, and #GeoCom17 was all about collaborations to get the most out of our skills and knowledge. For those reasons we covered a wide range of industries. We welcomed Javier de la Torre - founder and CEO of online GIS platform Carto, as well as Helen Farrier - head of policy services at the National Farmers Union, Philip Graham, CEO of the National Infrastructure Commission, David Johnson - having previously worked with Google, BT and Comcast, David is now Dep Dir. of Partnerships & Knowledge Exchange at ONS Data Campus,  and Kate Jeffery, Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience at UCL. 

To add another perspective Charlotte Jee, editor of Techworld Magazine, who has considerable experience reporting on the industry gave us the benefit of her insights.
