Map Middle East 2010 Conference

Map Middle East Conference is an international platform designed for building networks to enable g-lateral ties in the Middle East region for geospatial community. It is aimed at encouraging professionals representing different stakeholders of geospatial community to come together on a common platform and work together the means and ways to encourage geospatial related ties and collaborations at national, regional and global levels for overall growth of geospatial industry in the region.


Map Middle East 2010
22 - 24 March, 2010
Abu Dhabi, UAE

Plenary Session 1: Technology Trends
Technologies in Geographic Information System have been evolving rapidly over time. Early GIS involved simple tasks such as building a database of points, lines and polygons for solving spatial problems. Today, GIS has taken a big leap towards building data models. It has also become easily accessible to users through the introduction of Web GIS. The present trend in GIS is towards using data base management systems (DBMS) and fourth generation languages (4GLs). Also, the geospatial community demands greater compatibility between various hardware and GIS software. Thus, interfaces between GIS, CADD, remote sensing, image processing, architectural graphics, etc. are going to be increasingly easy to create that would lead to convergence of various technologies. This session would focus on dwelling upon the latest technology trends in various fields of geospatial industry.

Plenary Session 2: Geospatial Applications
Geographic Information System is now being used extensively to provide solutions for different verticals. Its significant role has been identified suitable for many areas. It is enabling its users to analyse layers of data. The biggest challenge facing today is to bring all related parties together to agree on a set of policies and standards. Another challenge is to bring data supplier communities together to reduce duplication in data collection. Only through connected communities can be a key to the success. It will discuss on best practices in various domains where geospatial technologies are being used to offer solutions to complex problems. It will deliberate on possibilities of connecting community and bringing the Geospatial industry to the next level. The need for connecting the staggered efforts of the Geospatial communities in different regions will also be highlighted. The session will deliberate on the various domains which can get a significant leverage through geospatial applications, domains like environment management, space policy and guidelines framework, construction and engineering and geointelligence will be part of the session.
