We are all lobbying for an operational and global spatial data infrastructure. The term “GeoWeb” refers to an immediate solution to redundant data, expensive data integration, and expensive or inefficient data distribution capabilities. More importantly, the “GeoWeb” unlocks a world of new technologies, markets and improved decision-making. This is a pivotal technological shift that will not only change the industry however the way we use geospatial information in our everyday lives.
The GeoWeb 2008 conference in Vancouver, Canada reflects the breadth, evolution and growing maturity of the GeoWeb. The theme for this year’s conference is “Infrastructure: Local to Global”. The GeoWeb has a local community dimension as well as a global dimension. The integration of global aggregators will drive the creation of local infrastructures and will give rise to a global infrastructure.
The annual conference will take place in Vancouver, Canada from July 21-25th, 2008 with the meetings being held at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. The GeoWeb conference is one of the only annual conferences focusing exclusively on the convergence of GIS and the Internet, and the economic potential associated with the convergence of XML, web services and geographic information systems. The GeoWeb 2008 conference welcomes both public and private organizations to meet, discuss and learn about today’s most innovative geospatial technologies.
At the GeoWeb 2008 Conference you will:
* Generate contacts
* Explore new ideas and concepts
* Offer your opinions and ideas
* Watch some of the best industry leaders speak on the “GeoWeb”
* Expand your horizons with valuable new information
* Benefit from the experience of others
