Pre-Symposium Workshops on May 20, 2013
Symposium Dates: May 21-23, 2013
From the exposome to the biome, individuals, organizations and government agencies are collecting increasingly vast amounts of geographic information. The spatial, temporal and attribute granularity of such data are increasing every day, yet the communities, systems and infrastructures to support these data are often ad hoc and ephemeral. Without concerted attention to preserving the provenance, accessibility and community connections of these wide ranging data and systems, their true value may never be fully realized.
Join the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science for a three-day symposium addressing issues of big data to little data, global to local spatial data infrastructures and systems architectures, and the potential roles for partnerships spanning academia, industry, government and professional societies. Join us in creating communities that lay the foundation for fostering sustainable knowledge production from ever-increasing data streams in the ever-widening disciplines of GIScience.
Come prepared to participate!
Leave with new ideas, new partnerships and new collaborations.
