Africa's 6th Annual GIS Summit 2015
GEOSPATIAL INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE"
Dates: 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.
- 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
- 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
- Using the knowledge of the customer, and the customer's
behaviour, to produce the optimal combination of channel, interaction, product
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.
