Geospatial IG

IG

Group details

Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

The Geospatial Interest Group is a domain oriented interest group to coordinate and build synergies on topics related to geospatial data. Though there has been lot of   developments and advances in geo data collection through mobile communications, sensor platforms, spatial search, and pervasive computing but still, the inter-disciplinary research needed to transform raw data into useful intelligence, to improve the planet's environmental, economic and societal well being, remains constrained by a range of barriers - disciplinary, organisational, historical, and a non-existent or non-rigorous approach to quantifying uncertainty in collected datasets.

Open Agricultural Technology Hackathon: after RDA P13

Dear Colleagues,
I kindly invite you to consider the upcoming Open Agricultural Technology
Hackathon that will be taking place at the USDA-ARS Agricultural Research
Center in Beltsville, Maryland -- conveniently right after RDA P13 (April
4-5) and relatively close in location (2.5 hours away, accessible by
train). There has been a lot of specific discussion around the use of
geospatial data and geospatial technologies during the Hackathon that may
be particularly of interest to this group.
