This Thursday, 8 November, the Society is hosting GeoCom, the AGI’s annual conference. Each year the conference takes a close look at the ways geospatial information can support a response to challenges and opportunities in the world around us. This year GeoCom will explore how location intelligence can help to solve the UK’s so called ‘productivity puzzle’.
Since the financial crisis of the late 2000s, the UK has struggled to keep pace with other European nations in terms of productivity. GeoCom18 is looking at how the UK’s geospatial industry and location intelligence can help to deliver a more productive UK economy.
Speakers at this year’s conference include Met Office Data Manager Helen Bartlett, Director of Policy at the National Infrastructure Commission Katie Black, Chief Executive for Centre for Cities Andrew Carter, and Director of Growth at the UK Space Agency Catherine Mealing-Jones.
The Society has a strategic partnership with the AGI and the two organisations work together closely to advance the understanding and use of geographic information and associated technologies in location intelligence, data integration and analytics. Part of this work focuses on further engaging, supporting and developing both the professional geography and geospatial communities, including our Chartered Geographer community.
