OceanWise, the UK’s leading independent marine data management, publishing and GIS specialist is hosting its annual, free-to-attend, Marine Data Management and GIS Workshop in London on Tuesday 22nd November 2016 at the School of Economic Science, 11 Mandeville Place, London W1U 3AJ.
The event has as its theme “Is poor data management putting your operations at risk?”, which is opportune given the huge volumes of geospatial and business data being collected and used on a daily basis. The event is supported by the Association for Geographic Information (AGI).
The keynote address will be delivered by Phil Archer, from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), on the topical subject of “Building the Web of Data”. We will be discussing developments in data sharing and publishing, the Sensor Web and Open Source Data initiatives and hear use case studies from UK ports, offshore energy providers and data technologists. There will be also be a discussion session entitled "So why should your data matter?"
If you are involved in managing marine or maritime assets or in decision-making, then do come along. By improving the way data is managed and used, you can gain real operational efficiencies. Investing in GIS is a great way to visualise such resources and apply them to your business processes. We look forward to seeing you on the day to engage in lively discussion, debate and networking.
