The Association for Geographic Information (AGI), the membership group for organisations and individuals working in the geospatial sector, is celebrating following a successful annual conference.
GeoCom 23 attracted more than 250 registered delegates with a challenging agenda featuring topics such as ethics and governance, skills shortages and the environmental impact of earth observation.
Under the theme ‘Intelligent Geospatial for a Sustainable Future’, GeoCom took place on the 5th December at the Royal Geographic Society in London. The conference opened with a keynote presentation from Google’s Geographer Ed Parsons.
He challenged the audience to ‘up their game’ in terms of explicit geospatial intelligence before concluding that, as geospatial specialists, we need to help experts from other fields ask the right questions, using geography, in order to get the right answers.
