Conference papers will reflect topics such as, Web services, service-oriented architecture and business and policy issues that are relevant in the context of the GeoWeb. Connecting these topics to working solutions in specific, market segments is a key objective of this years conference program. As such, connections between the topics above and specific market or domain solutions should be evident in the papers themselves.

GeoWeb 2007’s principal theme, “From Mashups to Infrastructure”, reflects the breadth, the evolution and the growing maturity of the GeoWeb. This theme acknowledges the highly visible, consumer applications that helped spawn the GeoWeb while emphasizing that the GeoWeb is increasingly playing a meaningful role in mainstream, mission-critical applications. As such, the GeoWeb is now a key component in critical decision making across a broad spectrum of market segments and application domains.
