By [email protected] - 15th November 2008 - 12:56

Twelfth International User Group ConferenceIn September, 150 delegates convened in Bath, United Kingdom for CARIS 2008 International User Group Conference. This was the twelfth such event hosted by leading geospatial software developer CARIS. Previous conferences have been hosted in Malaysia, Canada, Germany, United States and the Netherlands.
CARIS software applications span the complete ping-to-chart workflow from the echosounder âpingâ to the production and distribution of the nautical \"chart\". As such, CARIS 2008 delegates represented various national agencies responsible for their country\'s mapping and charting mandates in areas of defence, safety of navigation and maritime boundaries. A large contingent of delegates also represented private companies involved in hydrographic and geospatial data production and services as well as academia.The CARIS 2008 theme was âMake a Spatial Connectionâ recognizing the trend among users to step outside of their traditional use of the software to connect to other data types and sources, connect to outside organizations and to new users. This theme was echoed throughout programme.
