How to Visualize Our Impact with Geospatial Technologies?

Washington, DC - Aug 15 - RSVP Now
Remember when you saw your first geospatial visualization in international development? How amazed you were that satellite maps of the earth could show impact data in a new, clearer way than before?
Wait till you see where we are now with game-changing innovations like: These technology innovations are allowing your international development peers to calculate their impact in new and insightful ways.

We can now develop accurate demographic census data that scan scale from one hectare to an entire country, to direct development investments and track trends, and mash up Donor and Government indices with physical infrastructure and project investments to identify causal relationships and show direct impact.
Please RSVP Now to share your experiences and learn from these thought leaders working at the edge of geospatial technologies: Please RSVP now for the next Technology Salon DC where we’ll seek answers to questions like:
  • Who is innovating and what are they learning?
  • What are best practices in including local communities in our geo-data use?
  • When should we be cautious, or outright against geo-based decisions?
  • Where is geo-tech changing the development paradigm?
  • How will LIDAR,feature extraction algorithms, and other advances change our capabilities?
We'll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush but seating is limited so please RSVP now.  Once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!
