Eye on Earth User conference

Environmental problems are increasingly complex and interconnected – so we need ever better technology to understand how the world works. For example, as the climate changes, how will heat waves affect European cities? Clever mapping technology, such as this Eye on Earth map, can help us understand these coming challenges.

We would like to invite you to a conference on Eye on Earth, an online GIS tool and ‘global public information network’ for creating and sharing environmentally relevant data and information. Eye on Earth is a unique online forum bringing together ‘official’ data providers, other organisations, ‘citizen scientists’ and members of the public to build an increasingly accurate picture of our environment. It has been developed by the European Environment Agency (EEA) with partners ESRI and Microsoft.

What: The First Eye on Earth user conference

When: 4-6 March, 2013

Where: The Convention Centre Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

The conference will bring together both information providers and ‘on the ground’ users of information in the field of environment and sustainability. We will explore the role of the Eye on Earth Network in the complementary global initiatives of the Group on Earth Observations, UNEP-Live and the Eye on Earth Abu Dhabi Summit process.

More information on the conference and media registration.

The Eye on Earth conference is part of a week of important discussions on GIS to be held in Dublin. The ENVIROFI Conference (Environmental Observation Web and its
Service Applications within the Future Internet) will be held on 6 March 2013, while the EUROGI (European Umbrella Organisation for Geographic Information) imaGine Conference takes place from 7 to 8 March. You can register for both events here.

Please let us know if you would like more information.
