The 2010 O'Reilly Where 2.0 Conference - Put Location Awareness to Work

The first Web 2.0 innovations helped us make new connections on a global scale. The rise of location-aware tools, linked with the growing ubiquity of real-time, social, and mobile, is swinging the pendulum back to the human and local scale.

Raj Singh will be presenting "Shedding Light on Climate Change ".

At Map Asia 2010 & ISG 2010, Steven Ramage, Executive Director, Marketing and Communications, The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Norway will conduct a workshop titled "Standards and Interoperability":

Most organizations that could benefit from geospatial information don't yet benefit because spatial information has been locked in non-standard systems, or “stove pipes”. A committent to interoperability and to standards unlocks this foundational information type. However, with geospatial data and processing as well as with other kinds of data and processing, it is clear that while technical interoperability is necessary, it is not sufficient. Therefore, the use of standards and interoperable architectures are secondary to an understanding of a given business process and how geospatial data and services and by extension standards can best be used. The workshop will explore the return on investment, requirements and solutions for integration of geospatial standards and interoperability strategies into government and commercial business processes.

GeoTec Event 2010 is Canada's premier geospatial technology conference. Now in its 24th year, the 2010 event continues the tradition of offering an exceptional program focusing on the latest trends in technology and applications.

GeoTec caters to a wide audience of business experts, senior academics and technology specialists. We consistently develop a program that addresses the concerns of all users of GIS, imagery and geospatial data.

In addition, we identify respected speakers to present high-quality, timely papers of specific interest to residents within and around the Toronto region; we offer a vibrant, informative trade show, showcasing software, hardware and services; and we offer an ideal forum for networking and exchanging ideas.

GeoTec includes general sessions covering a variety of topics, and, in addition to the regular program, we include two keynote presentations from high-profile, knowledgeable members of the community. Also, we offer two panel discussions-one comprised of members of GeoWorld magazine's editorial advisory board, and another roundtable discussion with senior executives who address a specific topic currently relevant in the geospatial technology industry. Next year, our roundtable panel will address the topic of data: their accuracy, availability and dissemination process.

GeoWeb 2010 will take place in Vancouver, Canada July 26-30 and its organizers are currently seeking submissions for presentations and workshops.

GeoWeb is the industry-leading conference focused on the collective impact of the Web on geographic information standards, architectures and technology and the convergence of GIS and the Internet and the resulting economic, social and technical consequences. GeoWeb 2010 will feature well known keynote and invited speakers, workshops and tutorials, technical presentations, panel sessions, and product showcase opportunities. No other geospatial conference provides this level of knowledge intensity and is a must-attend conference for anyone involved in shaping the future of the geospatial industry.

Distributed sensor networks are attracting more and more interest in applications for large-scale monitoring of the environment, civil structures, roadways, animal habitats, etc. With the rapidly increasing number of large-scale sensor network deployments, the vision of a World-Wide Sensor Web (WSW) is becoming a reality. Similar to the World-Wide Web (WWW), which acts essentially as a "World-Wide Computer", the Sensor Web can be considered as a "World-Wide Sensor" or a "cyberinfrastructure" that instruments and monitors the physical world at temporal and spatial scales that are currently impossible. The WSW will generate tremendous volumes of priceless data, enabling scientists to observe previously unobservable phenomena.

Sensor web examples include US's National Ecological Observatory Networks (NEON), Canada's Geospatial Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Sensing (GeoCENS), Korea's Ubiquitous City (uCity), etc. In addition, we are also seeing the emergence of citizen sensing systems that use the ubiquitous and location-enabled nature of mobile phones to build large-scale urban sensing systems that using the phones as mobile sensor nodes. Such citizen sensing systems include the Mobile Millennium project, the CycleSense project, etc.

The GeoWeb 2010 Sensor Web academic track seeks to address research issues related to sensor web. We aim to bring together sensor web experts to present novel research and exchange ideas relating to the state of the art and its future directions. Real world results and deployments are particularly welcomed.
