Co-hosts Wellington City Council and Land Information New Zealand are excited to be bringing this wonderful event to Wellington and thank the International Society for Digital Earth for their decision to support us.
This 4th bi-annual Digital Earth Summit will see speakers and attendees from around the world gathering to discuss how we respond effectively to the global environment and societal changes in an increasingly populated world.
The International Society for Digital Earth is a non-political, non-government and not-for-profit international organisation, principally for the promotion of academic exchange, science and technology innovation, education, and international collaboration.
With a vision to harness the world’s data and information resources through international cooperation, the ISDE aims to establish a digital replication of our planet which will allow us to monitor, measure, and forecast natural and human activity on the planet.
Wellington is the perfect place to host the Summit: our world-class scientists and technologists, our beautiful ecological and cultural locations and unique geography, and our highly successful advanced digital and technology industry base offer us the opportunity to host an event that surpasses any previous ones in its ability to bring international and national experts together – this will be an event to be remembered.
On behalf of the 2012 Digital Earth Summit Steering Committee, Wellington City Council and Land Information New Zealand – I encourage you to join us in this exciting event and contribute to the global phenomenon that is Digital Earth.
