Is geospatial data key to progress? You can ask OS and Google at our GEO Business 22 panel discussion on May 19.
Is geospatial data the golden thread that runs through how we’ll solve the biggest social, economic and ecological challenges we face?
Hear first-hand on this from the organisations shaping the geospatial landscape and contribute your perspectives at our panel discussion at 9.45am on May 19th on the main stage at GEO Business 2022.
Our panellists are:
- David Henderson, Chief Geospatial Officer, Ordnance Survey
- Ed Parsons, Geospatial Technologist, Google
- Denise McKenzie, Community and Ethics Partner, PLACE
- Miranda Sharp, Founder, Metis Digital
- Anthony Tuffour, Global Lead GIS and Digital Twins, Buro Happold
- Jane Franklin, Director, Difference Engine (moderator)
We’ll be asking:
- How is geospatial the enabling foundation, infrastructure and glue for progressive innovation?
- What are the questions we need to be thinking about now to ensure that future innovation is accessible, equitable, inclusive and fair?
- What are some of the key geospatial challenges we should be focusing on fixing now?
Our panellists are amongst a host of industry leading thinkers who’ve contributed to new research scheduled for publication shortly. In it we look at the meta-trends in geospatial with a focus on innovation, governance and ethics, exploring opportunities, barriers to progress and threats.
We interviewed industry leading thinkers from the organisations – including the above and also 1Spatial, the Greater London Authority, the Geospatial Commission, the British Geological Survey, Think Deep, Geovation and The Crown Estate – that are shaping the geospatial landscape. We asked how can the industry work better amongst peers, and beyond into other sectors, to communicate the important role of geospatial data? And how can we ensure that innovation is equitable, inclusive and sustainable?
We’re inviting the geospatial community at GEO Business 22 to listen, contribute to the debate and to our forthcoming ebook: ‘The geospatial golden thread: ensuring equitable, inclusive and sustainable innovation’.
