Geospatial technology uses geography to integrate and combine data from diverse unrelated sources, organisations and users with no unique ID, to help identify new relationships in unconnected data. Technologies like IOT, self-driving cars, smart cities, and mobile all rely on location information.

We'll answer questions IT Professionals really want to know, including:

  • Why are GIS users so demanding?
  • GIS just another app, surely it can't be that hard?
  • What are all these photos for, do you really need all those petabytes?
  • Can't we just use Google Maps?
  • So we've spent 20 years collecting address data and you're saying it's rubbish?

See some practical (amazing) use cases of what can be done with location data.

After the meeting you will have the chance to network with Bryan and peers from the IT industry over some drinks and nibbles.
