Launch of the Geospatial Insights SIG Lunch

Event details
Wednesday, 22 May 2019
12:00 pm – 13:00 pm
Overview
Join us for lunch to find out more about the new Geospatial Insights Special Interest Group

We are at a geospatial moment in the UK with the establishment of the Geospatial Commission, AI and Data economy being a key pillar of the governments Industrial Strategy, and the geospatial community growing at an increasingly fast rate.

New technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, augmented and virtual reality, blockchain, miniaturisation of sensors, real time data and the proliferation of earth observation data are impacting the geospatial sector in a way not seen before.

Because of this the KTN has set up a Geospatial Insights Special Interest Group to help stimulate cross sector innovation in the geospatial community and help UK companies create ground breaking products and services.

We will be running a series of workshops focussed on developing new applications for sectors such as infrastructure, finance, agri-food, transport and health providing them with new insights derived from geospatial data.

We will also be running events to bring together the geospatial community with the latest advances in new technologies.

Please join us for a lunch meeting on the 22nd May at GeoBusiness 2019 and hear about our plans and announcements of the first workshops. There will also be the opportunity for you to get involved in helping to shape the programme. (This is in addition to the existing breakfast event – please only register for one event.)

The KTN will be opening its doors for the whole day so if you are unable to make the lunchtime event please pop in to our workshop room on the top floor of the Business Design Centre at any time on the 22nd May.

Please also register for GeoBusiness 2019, the geospatial event designed for everyone involved in the gathering, storing, processing and delivery of geospatial information.
