Noida, India: Geospatial Media and Communications (formerly GIS Development) announced its collaboration with Dutch Kadaster to organise its flagship conference – Geospatial World Forum during April 23-27, 2012 at RAI Convention Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. With the theme “Geospatial Industry and World Economy” the conference will address the utility of geospatial technologies in various industries that contribute to the world economy.
The conference aims to bridge the existing gap between the user community, geospatial technology experts and the policy makers by opening channels of communication and network that will lead to easy proliferation of spatial technologies in domains like infrastructure, utilities, energy, land management, business enterprise, mining, governance and so on. This global forum will witness participation from more than 2000 professionals from around the globe representing the government agencies, private industry, research institutions, developmental agencies and academic institutions. One of the primary objectives of the forum will be to raise the profile of the geospatial industry to the political and administrative leadership from around the world to address issues of global significance like land resources, climate change, environment, ecology, health, education and development.
On the occasion of the conference dates announcement, Sanjay Kumar, CEO, Geospatial Media and Communications said, “It has always been our endeavour to spread awareness about the power of geospatial technologies and with the passing years, we have witnessed how technologies are being converged to create solutions for ever increasing user population. Through Geospatial World Forum, we once again are attempting to bring out the new variants in this technology for the user group. We also hope to educate the policy makers about the significant role this technology can play and thus enable more conducive policy environment around spatial tools. At the end, I would like to express my pleasure in joining hands with Dutch Kadaster in this endeavour. The leading role Dutch Kadaster plays in developing spatial technologies in Europe and other countries, makes them an ideal partner for this forum.”
Kees De Zeeuw, Director, Kadaster International said, “We are pleased to welcome Geospatial World Forum to The Netherlands. I think the forum is a significant platform for not only technology developers, like surveyors, cartographers, image specialists, services and solution providers, but also for the technology users. Looking at the current world socio-economic scenario, I believe it is important that we encourage the use and application of spatial technologies, which can enable us to better manage resources, plan developmental activities ensure public safety and generate more value from our investments. Therefore the Dutch Kadaster is very willing to put effort in helping to make this event a success. With this, I would like to welcome you all to join us for Geospatial World Forum 2012 at Amsterdam and make the most of this important conference.”
