The conference aims at enriching the geospatial ecosystem with market intelligence, technology trends, success stories and capacity building. It is a confluence of a variety of activities in the form of plenary, technology showcase, symposia, workshops, panel discussions, dialogue and exchange forums - covering the vast gamut of technology, application, policy, use cases from across the world.

Revolving around the theme "geoSMART Planet: Resources + Infrastructure & YOU!" the conference will delve into the various innovative and integrative systems supported by geospatial technologies for enabling better, efficient use of resources, organised development of infrastructure and last but not least, enabling the common man to live a smart and easy life.

Themes will include urban planning as well as agricultural uses of geospatial technologies. For example, the session 'GeoAgri- a new wave of farming' will highlight issues such as

- Integration of IT & Geospatial technology.
- Automated farming processes using satellites, sensor technology and advanced precision farming techniques.
- Challenges aka over-farming, seasonal limitations (dependency on one season of farming) and adverse climatic condition.
- Climate Smart Agriculture for adaptation, mitigation and development.
- Learning’s/Take away from early adopters.

Land Information Systems for Smart Cities

During the forum Geospatial Media and UNECE will organize a two-day dialogue forum, "Land Information Systems for Smart Cities". The workshop objectives are to discuss existing concepts for smart cities, showcase examples of smart-city approaches and formulate next steps for cooperation between different organizations working for smart cities.

Geo Appathon

The kick-off will happen on Wednesday, 7 May from 12:00-15:00 at the Centre International de Conferences Geneve 17 rue de Varembe

The GEO Appathon is a global applications (App) development competition that aims to develop new, exciting and - most importantly - useful Apps using Earth observation data from the open and expansive Earth Observation data sets in the GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI).

Come and learn more about GEO/GEOSS and the role of Earth observations in addressing global environmental challenges.

You do not need to be an Appathon competitor to attend the kick-off event.
