Geospatial World Forum 2017 – Shaping a smarter world


Geospatial World Forum 2017 is the biggest geospatial event of the year and with keynotes from Jack Dangermond, Charles Trimble, Steven Berglund, Ola Rollen, Walter Scott and many more notable names, its hard to miss the event! If all the star power isn’t enough to allure us GeoGeeks, the theme for the conference next year is really intriguing “Geospatial + Deep Learning”.

GWF 2017 focuses on a wide array of industry including Smart Cities, Agriculture and also Geo Health (that’s refreshing). The only notable omission being the drone industry but I guess it will be amply represented during the discussions in other industry segments.

In addition to the main event (which already has over 300 speakers), there are also three co-located events that are scheduled during the conference. Yup, its going to be three very interesting days! You can download the full programme here.

Geospatial Hall Of Fame 

Kudos to Geospatial Media for recognising the contribution of industry stalwarts and for etching their names in the “Geospatial Hall of Fame“. The Hall of fame banquet will be held on the first day of the event.

I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
