Google Glass Demonstrated at the COM.Geo Conference in Silicon Valley

Washington, DC – January 7, 2014 COM.Geo hosted another great conference in 2013 in Silicon Valley! The diversity of geospatial topics addressed by keynote speakers and audience members was enlightening to us all. The attendees' presence and thoughtful contributions during speaker presentations and the panel discussion made the event a success. Observing trends in new geospatial technology between members of academia, developers, researchers, scientists, and government inspired cross-collaboration among conference attendees. We are confident this exchange of new ideas between interdisciplinary fields will result in future advancement and integration of geospatial technology into society.

The topics discussed in the conference, including innovations in Big Data applications, improving energy costs of location-based services, addressing future impacts and challenges in remote sensing and mapping, Microsoft WorldWide Telescope, Google Fusion Tables, and NASA World Wind fostered new perspectives about applications of geospatial technology to address global challenges and will inspire further innovation.

Mr. Mike Liebhold, IFTF Distinguished Fellow, demonstrates the latest research tool using Google Glass at COM.Geo 2013. The conference proceedings are also available in IEEE Xplore digital library for world distribution.

This year COM.Geo 2014 will take place in Washington, DC on August 4-6, 2014. Read more from COM.Geo 2014 conference website: http://www.com-geo.org/conferences/2014/index.htm
