Geospatial World Forum 2017 was successfully held in Hyderabad on 23-25 January 2017. The forum gave a glimpse into the future of geospatial industry, where artificial intelligence and deep learning will be driving geospatial data exploration, analytics and visualizations helping us derive meaningful insights for a smarter world.
With record attendance of 2844 participants, the conference saw convergence of high profile delegates from global geospatial community, policy makers, academia, researchers, technology providers, solution providers, and end-user segments across industries, regions and communities. This forum was co-hosted by Survey of India (SoI) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), giving it great governmental leverage and support.
GWF 2017 also served as a twofold celebratory platform – one was the celebration of 250th anniversary of Survey of India, the oldest agency of Government of India. The agency showcased its history at the conference through an exhibition and a play representing how the agency evolved over the years. The other was the 20th anniversary jamboree of establishment of Geospatial Media and Communications. A video showing the 20 years evolution of the company alongside the geospatial industry was played as a curtain-raiser of the conference.
The introduction of ‘Geospatial Hall of Fame’, a platform that celebrated and recognized ten unsurpassable legends of the geospatial industry, added significant value to the overall event.
With the overwhelming response and support from global community, Geospatial Media and Communications has decided to keep the momentum going and organize another Geospatial World Forum in Hyderabad in 2018. Block your calendar and do anticipate an even bigger event coming your way!
