GSDI 12 - Singapore
Realising Spatially Enabled Societies
Geographic information technologies and spatial data infrastructure play critical roles in allowing governments, local communities, non-government organizations, the commercial sector, the academic community and common people to make progress in addressing many of the world’s most pressing problems. Further, use of spatial data in conjunction with mobile technologies is becoming pervasive within many nations. While mapping and spatial data infrastructure development was previously roles accomplished only by governments, this is no longer the case. All sectors of society are becoming spatially enabled and contributing to the development of the global spatial data infrastructure. Whether using hand-held devices incorporating phones, cameras, GPS, maps and location services or using sensors and wireless communications embedded within our homes, offices, stores, vehicles and along our travel paths, citizens are helping to build the next generations of spatial data infrastructure through their contributions of location and descriptive data.
This conference will explore the complementary roles of government, private industry and the academic community in realizing better means for sharing geographic data and technologies and developing improved location-based services for meeting real world needs.
Singapore is a dynamic city rich in contrast and colour, you'll find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture here. Brimming with unbridled energy, this little dynamo in Southeast Asia embodies the finest of both East and West.
