Industry experts and leading organisations from around the world will display, demonstrate and debate the remarkable impact geospatial technology and solutions are having on our global environment at GEO Business 2018, taking place in London from 22-23 May.

Cutting-edge programme

New for 2018 are more than 75 presentations within 19 free to attend cutting-edge seminars where visitors can hear the remarkable impact geospatial technologies and solutions are having on our global environment. Case studies will demonstrate how others have increased productivity and reduced costs. Attendees will learn how the UK Government’s Digital Built Britain programme is evolving, how technologies like BIM, Visualisation and Augmented Reality are interacting with new data sources like Big Data, Linked Data and Earth Observation data from satellites. They will hear about projects where the latest cutting-edge sensors and systems are being used to capture data quickly and safely using technologies like terrestrial laser scanning, imaging total stations, drones and airborne LiDAR.

The strategic conference will address the role of geospatial in powering the 4th industrial revolution. There is no denying that we are in the middle of a technological revolution that is altering the way we live, move, work, and communicate with one another. This new era is rapidly becoming known as the 4th industrial revolution, and makes up the theme for this year’s GEO Business strategic conference. Conference Chairman, Simon Navin from Ordnance Survey lays out the objectives for the day “The aim of the conference this year is to celebrate, challenge and develop the role that geospatial has to play in maximising the digital economy as part of this revolution.” The full conference programme is now available to view online.
