Locate18-GeoSmart Asia 2018 Announcement

“I am delighted to announce the joint conference Locate 18 – GeoSmart Asia 2018 at Adelaide after grant success of joint Locate 17- 10th International Symposium on Digital Earth at Sydney in April 2017.  GeoSmart Asia has always been a successful platform for both spatial and non-spatial professionals in Asia and Pacific and every year it grows bringing different perspective and new thoughts to the user community. The collaboration between Locate and Geospatial Media will bring strengths and new insights to their respective delegates.  I am also pleased to share that the joint conference will be developed on the 2026 agenda requirements and hope to bring a difference to both spatial and its user community. I look forward to a fruitful and successful conference bringing delegates from local and international arena to bring a positive and enduring impact on the world.”

This strategic collaboration shall enable geospatial industry players from the region, as well as the international arena to get a deeper insight into the prospects, challenges and opportunities that awaits them in Asia Pacific region. Geospatial Media and Communications holds the vision to make a difference to world economy and society through geospatial information and has been working consistently in different parts of the world, right from South Asia to Latin Americas, Africa to Europe, Middle East to Asia Pacific to bring together stakeholders of geospatial community, be it policy makers, administrators, private industry, users or academicians on a single platform. This kind of intermingling of thoughts and perspectives has enriched the geospatial industry and further developed application of this technology. This partnership with SSSI and SIBA to co-locate the two conferences will enable Geospatial Media to further its mission of building the geospatial industry and promoting use and application of geospatial technologies for larger societal benefit.”
