The INTERGEO CONFERENCE of this year promises to be a source of both inspiration and enlightenment. Taking place from October 10 to 12, 2023, the DVW has meticulously crafted an outstanding program that offers a platform for both practical application and academic discourse.
Kicking off the three-day event with brilliance is Jack Dangermond, the Founder and CEO of ESRI Inc. His presentation, “Geography and GIS – a Platform for Sustainability,” underscores the vital role of geoinformation and interconnected collaborative platforms in addressing contemporary and future global challenges.
Equally captivating will be the glimpse into the future of German geoinformation provided by Prof. Dr. Paul Becker, President of the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy, for conference attendees.
Scott Crozier, Vice President of Survey & Mapping at Trimble, will deliver a paper entitled “Trust. Connect. Transform. Unlocking the Power of Geospatial Data.” He underscores the significance of highly precise geospatial data in driving social transformation and confronting complex issues like climate change and food security. Crozier’s presentation showcases advancements in surveying technology, underscores the importance of cloud technologies in ensuring data accessibility, and emphasizes that trust and collaboration are the cornerstones of transformative progress.
Earth Observation and Global Monitoring
Guided by Godela Rossner from the German Aerospace Center, the first day of the conference will feature influential insights and discussions on Earth Observation. Notable speakers including Juliette Lambin from the European Space Agency (ESA), Elisabeth Hamdouch from the European Commission, and Dr. Anna Christmann, the German government’s aerospace coordinator, will underscore the pivotal role of Earth observation in global challenges and political decision-making processes. The subsequent session will delve into “Earth Observation – From Global Monitoring to Local Action,” featuring experts like Dr. Martin Lenk of the BKG, Dr. Michael Judex of the German Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance, Prof. Dr. Ralph Watzel of the German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources, and Markus Probeck of the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC). They will shed light on the versatility and advantages of Earth observation in various application areas.
The Earth Observation Day will conclude with a panel discussion, where various stakeholders in geospatial information management will showcase their use of remote sensing data. This includes incorporating findings from global monitoring into climate adaptation strategies, a topic of increasing importance in climate-resilient urban planning.
Three Days Packed with Knowledge and Innovation
The diverse array of topics encompasses “The Future of GIS” and “Metaverse and Geoinformation” to Industry, Agriculture, Galileo, Smart Cities, BIM, Digital Twins, Smart Mapping, Spatial Data Hubs, and Sustainability in Real Estate. Equally emphasized are AI applications for sustainability and engineering geodesy.
