The objective of the conference it to gather all mapmakers from the print and digital world to explore new ways to deliver content, new ways to derive revenue from both print and digital, and new ways to design maps for a new audience in web, mobile, and print. Mapmakers of the world will gather in one place to exchange ideas on how to better serve a growing audience for geographic information. As more people find news ways to use mobile platforms such as tablets and smartphones, location-based information will be embedded into more apps. Mapmakers must be cognizant of these new form factors to maintain cartographic standards. As such there will be new business models to consider. View the .Map Conference website.
The GEO Huntsville Conference is the premier GIS event in the Southeastern United States. Huntsville, Alabama, is home to a diverse blend of technology innovation in the aerospace, defense, natural resource and environmental industries. This technology base and the ongoing R&D in the region provides the foundation for hosting this event. The unique relationship between NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC), the Redstone Arsenal, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, and the many private firms in the region supports a variety of R&D projects affecting government, education and commerce. Together, the professionals in North Alabama and surrounding southeastern region are engaged in applications that use remote sensing and GIS for work in areas such as missile defense, urban planning, environmental analysis and meteorology. We hope you will join us for this event by submitting a presentation or participating in our exhibition. View the geohuntsville website.
