The geospatial industry is going through a period of rapid transformation—as is our world. From climate change and COVID-19 to biodiversity loss and business uncertainty. At the same time, new companies are entering the geospatial arena. With them, they bring unique technologies and solutions capable of solving complex problems across societies. Harnessing the full potential of new technologies and solutions requires an ecosystem that encourages accessibility and innovation.
Join us to learn more about how by bringing together both data and analytics, geospatial marketplaces help us to better understand our changing world and create positive environmental, societal, and economic impacts. Without further adieu, here is the speaker line-up for the digital meetup on 16th July. Register here.

Satellites and Society: Impact of simple analysis at grass root
Advait Kulkarni started ‘Vasundharaa Geo Technologies‘ with a focus of bringing application of satellite technology to grass root level and help end beneficiaries use remote sensing as effectively as possible. The main idea always was to democratize data as much as possible and get analysts to take care of the analysis while basic data creation and spatial analysis is done using automated processes.
In addition to the 4 geo-awesome speakers, Bo Percival from the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team will be giving us a short overview about their work during community time.
