#GeoCom18: Solving the Productivity Puzzle

Date:
Organiser: The Association for Geographic Information
Location: Royal Geographical Society, London

AGI LogoGeoCom is the members’ event that’s open to all

GeoCom is the Association for Geographic Information’s annual, national conference. Each year we take a closer look at challenges and opportunities in the world around us. It’s an event for members of our own community, but also for people in the sectors and subjects with which we’re working.

This year, GeoCom is all about how we can improve productivity

We’ll show how Location Intelligence can deliver a more productive British economy. Here in Britain, we have a geospatial industry that’s second to none ~ and there’s a new generation of Location Intelligence providers whose ambitions know no bounds.

From simple visualisations of ‘what can we find, where?’, to complex data integration, data analytics, and digital twins that have the power to transform business performance, we believe Location Intelligence holds many of the answers to the productivity puzzle.

Speakers include Katie Black, director of policy at the National Infrastructure Commission; Andrew Carter, chief executive at thinktank Centre for Cities; Christina Franken, head of smart cities at mapping platform Mapbox; and Catherine Mealing-Jones, director of growth at the UK Space Agency.
