Hosted by University of Twente, Enschede
The Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-informatics (NCG) organizes its annual NCG symposium to encourage exchange of ideas and discussion of scientific research in the Netherlands in the fields of Geodesy and Geo-informatics.
This year's symposium will be in the new ITC building on campus of the University of Twente.
The symposium is free of charge and intended for all researchers and students of Dutch universities, academies, companies, government agencies and institutes that are active in the field of geodesy, geo-informatics and geo-information science and for professionals from the commercial and operative areas in these fields.
The symposium consists of a plenary part in the morning and parallel sessions in the afternoon. It also includes lunch and we will close the day with drinks.
This year Baarda lecture will be given by James Cheshire, Professor of Geographic Information and Cartography at University College London London. (https://jcheshire.com).
Title: 'The Power of Maps'
Using stunning maps and visualisations taken from his award-winning book Atlas of the Invisible, James Cheshire will show how geography is at the heart of many of the world’s challenges – and offers a solution to them. You will see examples from pioneering thinkers and data visualisers from the 19th Century and hear how they are inspiring mapmakers today to make best use of the latest data and technology. The talk will also offer some behind the scenes insights into the concepts and techniques required to transform complex data into inspiring information.
