OpenGeo’s Chris Holmes a Keynote Speaker at ISDE7, the International Symposium on Digital Earth

Mr. Holmes brings a unique perspective on the topic. As president of OpenGeo, he has overseen the development of a number of leading open source geospatial technologies. Mr. Holmes led OpenGeo’s efforts to develop collaborative web mapping software tools in support of the World Bank’s disaster reduction goals. This project led to the formation of GeoNode.org, promoting open source geospatial collaboration and SDI building efforts worldwide. When speaking about the benefits that open source technologies bring to ISDE7 delegates, Mr. Holmes noted: “The OpenGeo platform allows anyone – citizen scientist, commercial enterprise, or NGO and governmental users – to contribute, collect, view, and analyze geographic data.”

The 7th annual ISDE conference will feature over 100 speakers and 1,000 delegates from around the world. Previous years have built ISDE’s strong reputation as the preeminent event exploring how technologies are bridging the divide between the physical and Digital Earth. The conference addressed a diverse set of topics such as economic and social sustainable development, environmental protection, disaster mitigation, natural resource conservation and the improvement of human being’s living standard.
