The amount of data available and produced every day is exploding – data has become an important raw material that is of high importance in nearly every industry sector worldwide....
The AGIT Symposium and Expo is one in a series of conferences in applied geoinformatics. Taking place once a year in Salzburg, Austria, it is being held simultaneously with the GI_Forum conference. Both together host a number of presentations covering various topics in the latest developments of GIScience, Smart City Concepts, Hydrology, Environmental Monitoring, Natural Hazards, Energy, GeoIT and Industry 4.0, Business Geomatics, GDI and Big Data, UAS, Laserscanning, Remote Sensing and Image Analysis, Open Government and Open Data.
This year AGIT will also feature a number of special topics, among them a dedicated Copernicus Session. It will deal with several questions revolving around the novel satellite missions of the ambitious Earth observation programme, such as:
- What is the benefit for the users in their every day work in science, administration or industry?
- How can one access the data?
- What costs are involved for the user?
- How will Copernicus evolve in the upcoming years?
