The 2018 edition of the Geospatial World Forum under the theme ‘GEO4IR: Geo-Enabling Fourth Industrial Revolution’, will be held between January 15 – 19, 2018 at Hyderabad International Convention Center, Hyderabad, India. Geospatial World Forum is the flagship event of the Geospatial Media and Communications.
Geospatial Media and Communications is the world’s largest geospatial knowledge platform. It aims to facilitate collaboration and demonstrate the value and benefits of geospatial technology for organizations, governments and citizens.
The event serves as a crucial platform to understand best practices and create opportunities for exchange of ideas between the government and the industry leaders. It is imperative for governments to participate in these events to understand best practices and facilitate the development of a successful local geospatial industry. These include encouraging the adoption of geospatial data in informing decisions in urban planning, health and emergency services, disaster management and environmental protection, modernizing technical infrastructure required for data collection and incentivizing private sector participation.
Geospatial World Forum also offers a unique opportunity to government and industry leaders to discuss how to design policies that make better use of geospatial technology to tackle economic and social issues.
The 2018 edition will discuss various aspects such as Smart City, Construction and Engineering, Location Intelligence, Defence and Public Security, Geospatial Innovation, Sustainable Development Goals, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence Internet of Things and more.
The conference will also host four key events under one roof – GeoBuiz Summit, AI&IoT Summit, Geo 4SDGS Forum and Location World.
