OGC supports American Geographical Society Geography 2050 Fall Symposium

Sep 10, 2014 -- The OGC is a partner with the American Geographical Society, the Earth Institute and the US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation in presenting the American Geographical Society (AGS) Fall Symposium, “ Geography 2050: Mounting an Expedition to the Future”.

The symposium will be held on Wednesday, November 19, 2014. Hosted by the Earth Institute at Columbia University, the one-day event will take place in the historic Low Library, site of the Pulitzer Prize Award Ceremony. This is the inaugural event of a multi-year strategic dialog meant to help us understand the major trends that will reshape our nation and our planet between now and 2050, and the investments in data, technology and capabilities necessary to navigate our uncertain future successfully.

This Symposium offers an opportunity for professionals in industry, government, academia, and the social sector, as well as members of the general public to come together to think collectively about exploring the future, and to examine how geography, geographic thinking, and geospatial data and technologies will enable us to address these major trends proactively.

The Symposium will address topics including:
  • Populations, Shifting Identity, and Well Being;
  • Climate, Risk and Opportunity;
  • The Future Energy Landscape;
  • The Emerging Geography of the Internet of Things; and
  • Investment, Law and Policy.

"The Open Geospatial Consortium is proud to support this important forward-looking dialog in partnership with the Symposium's other partners and sponsors," said Mark Reichardt, OGC's President and CEO. "Through this exploration of the future of geography, spatial thinking and the application of geospatial information and technology, scientists and policy makers as well as technology providers and consensus standards organizations like OGC have the opportunity to anticipate and include important requirements into their plans and their development activities."
