Geospatial World: the World <i>Is</i> Geospatial

Communication Key Challenge for Near Future
In the vibrant city of San Francisco 1,250 professionals from 56 countries joined the 2005 edition of Intergraph’s user conference Geospatial World, held from 25th to 28th April. This year’s event drew more attendees then ever and provided many opportunities to look at the future of geospatial. More attendees every year – this means that the conference and technical programmes must appeal to visitors. And indeed, enthusiastic and dynamic conversations filled the whole of the Hilton Hotel during Geospatial World, a name that is itself almost becoming a trademark. Participants were able to update their knowledge by attending more than... (read more)

India's Leapfrog Geospatial Industry

GIM international interviews Preetha Pulusani
An Indian geospatial magazine in April 2008 released a survey demonstrating how, although still adolescent, the Indian geospatial industry showed immense potential. The survey pegged the overall 2006-07 worth of the industry within India at Rs6830 million (USD139,50 million), with the services segment contributing 51%. Minister for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences Kapil Sibal was moved to declare that the industry would outperform the country's IT and telecoms boom. It's an enthusiasm shared by geospatial information systems expert Preetha Pulusani, who was appointed joint managing director of Indian multinational Rolta in March this year. We spoke to her about... (read more)
