GIS - Creating Our Future
India is at a cusp of its next economic and technology renaissance. Government initiatives such as Digital India, Swachh Bharat, 100 Smart Cities, AMRUT and Jan Dhan Yojna aim to build a new and stronger foundation for future India and put India on the global forefront. Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has an instrumental role in helping us as a nation to achieve this vision. Recognizing this, the theme of the conference was “GIS - Creating Our Future”.
“GIS - Creating Our Future” is about how we can use our collective efforts and GIS as a technology to design & create a better future for India.
Aligning with the overall theme, this conference was structured under four key tracks:
- Smart Cities — how GIS supports the Indian government’s vision of building 100 Smart Cities enabling smarter solutions for a better tomorrow
- Smart Governance — how GIS improves the government-citizen interface and enhances operational efficiencies
- Disaster Risk Management — how GIS helps you get the geographic edge for your disaster / emergency management initiatives
- Environment Management — how GIS can be used for a better understanding of activities that are negatively impacting our earth
