The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) will be conducting its yearly Geospatial Solutions Conference, from 10th April 2011 and running through until 13th April. The conference will take place in Dallas, Texas and is geared towards the exploration of the integration of current infrastructures through geospatial technology. It will also look into ways on how to maximize the efficiency of geospatial technology while extending the life of their valuable assets, as well as look at how crowdosurcing in this field has evolved. The conference will bring together the minds of the most credible and experienced presenters in order to give the company the most effective decisions for the future of geospatial technology.
This year’s conference will introduce new program features including, new speakers, an Open Source Track section, and a daily Industry Trends and Analysis Group (ITAG) to make sure questions are addressed every day. Furthermore, vital organization topics including 3D mobile mapping, crowdsourcing, and smart grid deployment are expected to be dissected thoroughly. Crowdsourcing in particular has played an integral part in the development of geospatial solutions through various platforms, and the conference will feature speakers from pioneers of crowdsourced geospatial solutions including OpenStreetMaps and Mapquest.
We’ve spent a lot of time this past year listening to our members and constituents and making the changes that they told us they wanted made. The lineup of presenters is impressive and their content is really top notch – probably the most complete and informative educational event GITA has ever offered. The whole event is focused on enabling participants to network with their counterparts in different industry segments, a hallmark of what makes GITA different.

The conference will also examine how crowdsourcing and geospatial solutions work together to collate vital information 2D and spatial systems (usually stored separately) to help determine population per land unit that require additional infrastructure such as amenities, roads and highways.
GITA have promised a heavily packed schedule of talks, workshops, and seminars guaranteed to whet the appetites of those excited at the continued growth of geospatial solutions. If you would like to know more about the event and wish to attend then you can visit their website by clicking here.
