Primary partners in organizing this conference include the GSDI Association and GEOIDE.
The theme for this conference is Spatially Enabling Government, Industry and Citizens.
Geospatial science has carved a niche for itself within not only the technology circle and decision makers, but with a number of new user segments as well. In fact, it would be apt to call it as Geospatial Industry, as it has evolved its own ecosystem and has been spreading its reach to contribute to other technologies and application sectors.
The theme for GSDI 12 was "Realizing Spatially Enabled Societies." The conference organizers set out to encourage collaboration to help create an enabling environment that enhances outcomes in societies, economies and the global environment. A peer-reviewed book on this topic was launched during the conference.
