Africa's 6th Annual GIS Summit 2015


28th - 29th May 2015
Amabhubesi Conference Centre, Ferndale, Randburg, Johannesburg

It's that time of the year and Amabhubesi cordially invites you yet again to the Africa's 6th Annual GIS Summit 2015, As we extend the use of information about our changing organisation, we need to explore how fusion of several factors can help simplify the process of deriving information about our changing organisations so that everyone can make sense of the change. There are reasons such as maps, communication and spatial analysis why GIS is being accepted by organisations. GIS is powerful and the technology is advancing and becoming easier and more accessible. The geospatial industry consists of a whole range of technologies, including measurement, data management, visualisation, spatial analysis, mapping, etc. Location is the common key for integration of all types of data in GIS. This ultimately means that data from integrating all of the different scientific disciplines as well as divisions of an organisation can be brought together. This integrative capability, together with spatial analytics, is the essential component that makes GIS so valuable today. Geospatial technology has become a platform for every industry. For example, in utilities like asset management and analysing outages; for transportation companies they are becoming essential for routing and scheduling; in disaster management they are the foundation for predicting, managing and recovering from these events.

Conference objectives
  • Address a critical need to strengthen sustainable capacity in mapping and the spatial analysis of epidemiological data
  • To understand the intellectual and practical activities of rapid developments in GIS technology.
  • To demonstrate and evaluate the integration of GIS and utility asset management
  • Using geospatial technology to investigate its capability to better manage, analyse and visualize soil data.
  • Assisting GIS educators at various institutes towards understanding the potential role of open source software.
  • To ensure the complete territorial coverage of census data collected.
  • Using the knowledge of the customer, and the customer's behaviour, to produce the optimal combination of channel, interaction, product and pricing

The conference aims to enrich technology providers, users, policy makers and academia with the latest technology knowledge, success stories and capacity building. These activities will cover topics relating to geospatial technologies, applications and policies, join us and network with experts from  Master Data Management, Independent Electoral Commission, Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Africa, Nigerian Building and Road Research Institute, University of KwaZulu-Natal, University of Kenya, TGIS, DigitalGlobe Inc, Department of Water & Sanitation (DWS).

Owing to the number of this participants on the last annual, we advise your organization to secure your seat(s) now as we have limited seats, see attached detailed brochure and registration for your full consideration.
