Now for the MOST exciting part, and allow us to be a little nostalgic here. We can’t possibly hide our enthusiasm as we announce the ‘Geospatial Hall of Fame’, a platform that celebrates and recognizes the unsurpassable legends of the geospatial industry. We’re celebrating individuals who represent the uniqueness, the innovativeness and the diversity of the geospatial industry. They’re as iconic as they’re unforgettable. In a world where location is becoming fundamental to all decision-making, these individuals have not only taken our industry to new heights, but have also made the term ‘geospatial’ a term of common man. 


Ten visionary leaders, whose passion, vision, knowledge, leadership, and business acumen have brought geospatial industry to a global arena, will be felicitated and added to the ‘Geospatial Hall of Fame’ on January 23, 2017, during the Gala Dinner of Geospatial World Forum 2017, at Hyderabad International Convention Centre, Hyderabad, India. What’s more? Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Railways, Government of India, will grace us with his presence as chief guest for the occasion.
