Geospatial Information Systems (GIS)
Modern Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) allow us to use highly complex data to explore trends, relationships, patterns, and opportunities in our ever-changing environment. Thanks to Google Maps, location based services are expanding to become a larger part of the mainstream use of personal computers and mobile devices. In this
GIS Tech Forum we will discuss new directions and innovations in the compilation and use of geographic data. We will present insights on new potential applications and issues such as crowd-sourcing. New controversial issues in acquisition of data from satellites and aerial platforms such as drones will be explored. This will be the first of two GIS Government in Technology Forums. The second forum will discuss GIS-derived data and other developments in the public sector. Please join us for the intriguing look into both the Present and Future of GIS.
