MENA Geospatial Forum
Geospatial technologies have become increasingly vital in our interconnected world. The global landscape is presently experiencing a profound and extensive transition that encompasses technological, sociological, economic, and geopolitical dimensions. The importance of geospatial data lies in its ability to provide valuable insights into the relationships between location, people, and the environment. Progressing from being a technology that delivers actionable insights to transforming into an industry that integrates spatial perspectives across various sectors and workflows, geospatial advancements are making significant headway in their capacity to create value.
With a global valuation of around $500 billion and a direct socio-economic impact exceeding $7.3 trillion, the industry has attracted significant investments, totalling $200 billion, over the last few years. The integration of geospatial technology into essential economic sectors, such as energy, defence, telecom, infrastructure, climate, environment, and land administration, has played a fundamental role in this transformative journey, contributing to the fortification of the global economy.
Geospatial technology enables us to understand spatial patterns, make informed decisions while addressing complex challenges effectively, thus empowering governments, businesses, and individuals to optimize resource utilization, enhance sustainability, and improve overall efficiency.
Join us at the MENA Geospatial Forum which serves as a platform to expand geospatial horizons, bridge knowledge gaps and foster collaborations among experts and practitioners and gain insights on how to streamline data flow, achieve strategic objectives and draw inspiration from international standards such as IGIF (Integrated Geospatial Information Framework). The event will facilitate networking, knowledge sharing and discussions on leveraging geospatial insights across sectors.
