Spatial Data Infrastructures Middle East

17 June, 2013 - 19 June, 2013, Amman, Jordan

Building a fully interoperable and spatially enabled government through the development and maintenance of Spatial Data Infrastructures

Geographic information plays a key role for any government, whether it is urban-, transport-, security- or environmental development. In the Middle East the expansion of geographic information systems and their functions have been on a rapid growth.

Over the past decade, governments have realised the need to be able to access and use the vast amounts of data collected on a daily basis. Whilst individual departments or agencies posses the tools to analyse, utilise and disseminate information, this can leave gaps at a governmental or even national level.

Spatial Data Infrastructures Middle East offers you a platform that puts the essential technologies, policies and institutional arrangements in place, to bring together geographic and spatial intelligence. Creating a unified information infrastructure accessible to multiple users.

Benefits of attending:

  • Explore Geographic Information Systems and how your specific organisation can benefit from a unified and achievable plan
  • Discuss future SDI development plans with senior Government decision makers
  • Discover end-users' GIS and geospatial requirements and solutions being considered
  • Find out the challenges faced in building an SDI and how to overcome them
  • Hear about how government department interoperability can be improved through the development of an SDI
  • Learn about the latest technologies available and which is the best fit for your SDI plans
