GEO Business 2017: Day Two

The last session of the conference Day One included a presentation on cyber security. Like health and safety, much of this topic is obvious - when you think about it.

(By Richard Groom, contributing editor) The second day of GEO Business was only fractionally less busy than the first. I decided to start with a few workshop sessions. The workshops included one which presented GPR (ground penetrating radar) applications for investigating... (read more)

Reed Business Geo Launches European Water Platform

The importance of water is ever increasing in European policy and business agendas.

GEO Business Conference Spanning the Spectrum

In his introduction to the GEO Business 2017 conference, Conference Chairman Stephen Eglinton announced that this would be “a conference spanning the spectrum of geospatial activities”.

Ordnance Survey (OS) CEO Nigel Clifford opened his keynote, entitled ‘Geospatial: Innovation, Integration and Impact’, with the comforting thought that geospatial in Britain is actually in pretty good shape. Geospatial World Forum’s Geospatial Readiness Index places the UK in second place behind the USA. But we can’t... (read more)
