Start: 07/21/2008 8:00 am

The term "GeoWeb" or Geospatial Web refers to the ability to locally/globally integrate and share geospatial information via the Internet.  

The GeoWeb 2008 conference reflects the breadth, evolution and growing maturity of the GeoWeb and is one of the only conferences focusing exclusively on the convergence of GIS and the Internet, and the economic potential associated with the convergence of XML, web services and GIS.  This exciting annual conference will take place in Vancouver, Canada from July 21-25th, 2008 at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. The GeoWeb 2008 conference welcomes both public and private organizations to meet, discuss and learn about today’s most innovative geospatial technologies.

GeoWeb 2008 reflects a growing awareness of the need to interpret geospatial information in the broadest possible terms, especially in the context of the built environment, where information sharing and collaboration is key to the increased productivity, efficiency and vastly improved decision making.  We hi-light this in GeoWeb 2008 with the theme on CAD/BIM/GIS Integration as we build toward GeoWeb 2009 Cityscapes.

The theme for the 2008 conference is “Infrastructure:  Local to Global”, which implies the GeoWeb has a local community dimension as well as a global dimension.  The integration of global aggregators will drive the creation of local infrastructures and will give rise to a global infrastructure.  Additional points of discussion will include:

  • Global Aggregators and Data Communities
  • GeoWeb in Security and Defense
  • Real Time Emergency Response and Environmental Security
  • Neo-Geo, User Generated Data and the GI Professional
  • CAD-BIM-GIS-Games Integration – 3D Cityscapes (Worlds Real and Virtual)
  • Infrastructure for Information – Building Alongside Physical Infrastructure
  • Municipal SDI in the GeoWeb
  • Imaging, Coverages and Information Infrastructures

British Cartographic Society Annual Symposium

http://www.cartography.org.uk/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=44

The British Cartographic Society has announced the dates and location for its Annual Symposium. Under the banner of Mapping 2008: Making the Most of Maps,the residential conference will take place from the 3rd to the 6thSeptember, inclusive, at the Harben House Conference facility inNewport Pagnell. This annual event, which has been held every yearsince 1963, was last year given a total revamp offering delegates a newformat and content including a wide choice of topical presentationstogether with a programme of interactive workshops.

“Cartographycontinues to thrive amid both the opportunities and challenges posed bydevelopments in technology,” said Mary Spence, who was awarded an MBEfor her contribution to map design, and is currently President of TheBritish Cartographic Society. “This event is designed to give delegatesthe opportunity to learn about future developments and trends inmapping, debate the challenges facing cartography, gain practicalexperience and get involved with a friendly society that is committedto better mapmaking.”

The Mapping 2008: Making the Most of Mapsconference programme features an impressive line up of industry expertswho will give inspirational presentations on a diverse range of maprelated topics including representatives from the Royal GeographicalSociety, City University, Pitney Bowes MapInfo and the government’sCommunities and Local Government.

In addition to the fullprogramme of presentations delegates can also choose from a range ofhands-on workshops. Topics include ‘Making the most of OS MasterMap’,‘Applying the KISS principle for effective map communication’, ‘Getstarted in mapping!’ and ‘The trials and tribulations of map research’.Mapping 2008: Making the Most of Maps will also include all thefavourite elements from over four decades' of symposiums; the MapCurators’ Workshop including a visit to the RAF Military IntelligenceMuseum at Chicksands, special interest group meetings, a commercialexhibition, gala dinner and awards ceremony.

As part of theAssociation for Geographic Information (AGI) Continuing ProfessionalDevelopment Programme (CPD) and the Royal Geographical Society with IBG(RGS-IBG) Chartered Geographer scheme, delegates at Mapping 2008: Making the Most of Maps will be able to use their attendance as part of their annual training objective.

Mapping 2008: Making the Most of Mapsis being organised on behalf of The British Cartographic Society, byTraining 4 GIS, the training and consultancy division of TheGeoInformation Group. Fiona Cocks, Training Director, commented “Lastyear's new look was well received by delegates both old and new and,following an extensive consultation process, Mapping 2008: Making the Most of Maps hopes to build on this success.”

Where:  The Ranch - Larimer County 5280 Arena Circle, Loveland Colorado 80538

GIS in the Rockies is the inter mountain west's premier geospatial information and technology conference. This year's conference, Mapping Your Assets, will focus on issues related to Real Property Asset Management as well as challenges facing the geospatial industry as GIS integrates into the traditional information technology component of the enterprise.

AGENDA
Manifold “How To” Instructional Session - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
This session covers a basic introduction to Manifold. The session is very flexible and the
idea is to work through a small live project provided by one of the users. To help facilitate
this concept of ‘hands on learning’ please submit Manifold topics you would like to share or
present with the group. Topics for instruction are wide open and can range from analysis to
map layout. The session will be led by Johanna Pfalz.
Morning coffee break courtesy of Eclipse GIS

Lunch – 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Informal Discussion and Presentations – 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm - Show us what you have
been working on using Manifold GIS. Bring your cool maps and wicked analysis.
Afternoon coffee break courtesy of GeoBorealis Spatial Data Management

Please register and/or send submissions to Johanna Pfalz at Johanna.pfalz@telus.net or
to William Elliott at wfelliott@geoborealis.ca or contact us at 250.847.3822.

No computer technology is supplied, but you are encouraged to bring your laptop with an
active Manifold license.

Best Practices for Developing Geographic Information Models

Monday, November 17, 2008 - Hilton Garden Inn - Issaquah, Washington

Workshop Details:

Even with decades of experience, effective design of a GIS database remains a combination of art and science. This workshop shows how you can build on your existing data and skills to take advantage of the latest generation of GIS tools and practices for database design.

Specific topics to be covered include:

· The key phases in iterative database design Developing use cases

· Using database templates to build on your existing data sources Ten design patterns for GIS database structures and elements

· Ten steps to follow for conceptual, logical, and physical information modeling

· Understanding the relationships between your map layers and geographic database objects
