Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the scientific process for accumulating, processing analysing, and visualizing geographic data to assist in making more informed decisions.
Large development projects with increasing investment coupled with environmental considerations are driving the requirement and adoption of advanced digital geospatial and 3D visualization technology to create more intelligent sustainable urban environments and infrastructure.
All sectors of government and service provision are transforming processes and decision making into intelligent forms of mapping and visualization. Facilities, utilities and infrastructure management, oil & gas, ports & waterways, the built and non-built environment are becoming increasingly dependent on more accurate and multi-dimensional technology and processes.
Digitization of maps will create a full 3D version of the built and non-built environment to facilitate better and more accurate planning and sustainable decision making. Integration of GIS with other 3D virtualization technology including Building Information Modelling (BIM) is creating new dimensions and use for spatial technology.
This leading-edge event will cover these areas and look at cutting edge utilization of the latest GIS processes and technology. It will look at the challenges being faced and how they are overcome.
Presentations will be made by government departments and agencies; infrastructure managers; land departments; real estate developers; construction contractors; oil & gas; private sector organizations; and those driving innovative use of GIS and other spatial technology.
