Posted on Posted in Announcement

Some ideas for your presentation are listed below:

  • Case Studies: Share the experiences of you and your organization using geospatial technology and remote sensing. Which things worked well? Or poorly? What is the state of SDI in your country? What problems did you solve, and how, at what cost? What do you recommend for others?
  • Millenium Development Goals: How does your geospatial research supports sustainable development, hazard prevention, crisis management, good governance, poverty reduction, health programs, etc?
  • Visualization: Tell about your ways to convey your geodata and your analyses. How do you present information in a compelling way? 3D? Some cartographic hints?
  • Open Source and Open Data: Your experiences about OS tools? What is the state of Open Data in your coutnry?
  • Hacks and Mashups: Have you put together something novel or cool by combining your geodata, your information with other, existing resources? What did you stick together, how did it work?
  • Benchmarks: Report your experience using geospatial software. How do features compare to other software solutions? Performance? Open Source solutions? Ease of use? What do you recommend for others?
  • If you are developer or reseller: What are the new developments in your geospatial software product? Where are your clients? How does it work, how do people use it, what are the technical issues?
  • Collaboration and interoperability: Which standards and techniques are you using to improve collaboration between organizations and between individuals? Offering public geodata, applying collaborative data collection (“crowssourcing”), data sharing, open standards, de facto standards?
  • Alumni Experience: Share your personal and professional experiences after leaving University! What was helpful? Any recommendations from your side?
