Theme - GIS: Enabling Transformation
Our world is undergoing a massive digital transformation. Citizens, societies, government and businesses are increasingly adopting smarter ways to leverage this digital transformation. The technology industry has been leading the vision of creating a (smarter) digital world with technologies & systems that help us become more efficient & effective.
Because of the essential nature of location, and the spatial dimension, GIS remains at the ‘heart’ of such smart initiatives, leading the transformation journey. GIS itself is getting smarter integrating everything, connecting people, processes, things and all the data about them. It is evolving to integrate technologies such as IoT and big data analytics and concepts into a powerful platform. GIS will not only help us transform but also provide a framework for efficiencies & better decision making.
Recognizing this, the theme of the conference is ‘GIS: Enabling Transformation’
