About Americas Geospatial Forum

Americas Geospatial Forum aims to connect the dots for geospatial technologies in the Americas with communities, business enterprises, government, research & academia through strategic collaborations, innovation, promotion, partnerships and management liaison. The erstwhile LAGF (Latin America Geospatial Forum) is expanded in scope and purpose to include the different regions in America (North America, Central America, The Caribbean and South America). With such broadening of geographic scope, the innovations taking place in different parts of the region in technology adoption, use case and applicability can be easily exchanged, giving rise to B2B, B2G and B2C opportunities. More details about the conference can be viewed on www.americasgeospatialforum.org

The conference is co-organised by National Institute of Statistics & Geography Mexico (INEGI), and in partnership with Oracle as Co-Sponsor, Pan-American Institute of Geography & History, Instituto Mexicano del Transporte as Supporting Partners, and National Polytechnic Institute Mexico; Mario Molina Center For Strategic Studies On Energy And The Environment Mexico; National Service of Health, Safety and Food Quality Mexico (SENASICA); UNAM Geography Institute Mexico; and UNIGIS America Latina as Knowledge Partners.
