Geospatial World Forum 2019
At the beginning of April our BDM, Rob, attended the Geospatial World Forum 2019 (GFW19) in Amsterdam as part of the delegation from Korec Group.
During the three-day Forum, the geospatial industry, community and professionals had an opportunity to enhance geo-business, display innovation and work together in order to find possible solutions for global matters. The purpose of the event is to provide a collective and mutual platform for discussion, learning and development.
It focused on ‘the importance of geospatial technology in the world of today’ with many touting the advancement of this technology as the ‘4th Industrial Revolution’. Emerging technologies such as 5G have the potential to change the way in which we live, featuring in everything from autonomous vehicles, data transfer to even just simple streaming.
Talks were featured from companies such as Trimble, Faro, Larsen-Toubro and Four Square discussing a host of technological advancements and challenges. Whilst the world faces many challenges at present the global geospatial community continue to forge ahead with improvements that we will start to see very soon.
There was also a trade show / exhibition stand featuring various companies operating within the geospatial industry. This allowed delegates a chance to discuss technical and real-world issues with the experts on the stand.
Big thanks to Korec and the team for their hospitality throughout the event, hopefully we will see you all next time.
