The Future of Location Data – where are we heading?

If you’re in London this Wednesday 7 November, why not join us for an evening of presentations, networking and discussions – with a focus on “The Future of Location Data”?

Where is location data going? How will it impact your work? Where are the opportunities? These questions and more will be explored during our latest Innovation event that we’re hosting at the Google Campus, London. With only a few tickets remaining, it’s sure to be a thought inspiring session, so if you’re interested in coming along, click here to register for your FREE ticket.

The evening will build on two events that we brought to you earlier in the year – ‘Location – Everything happens somewhere’ and the ‘OS OpenData Masterclass’. Once again, there will be an opportunity for innovators, entrepreneurs, developers – indeed anyone that has an interest location data – to meet-up and learn more about the vast wealth of location-based resources, including mapping datasets that are freely available to order from Ordnance Survey, through the OS OpenData portal.

We’ll hear presentations from a number of speakers, including Anthony Colby – Geospatial Systems Practice Lead at Logica. Anthony is the leader of the CGI UK Geospatial (GIS) Systems Professional Practice which provides a focal point for CGI UK’s GIS professionals. He specialises in the design and development of innovative geospatial solutions for commercial and government customers enabling them to make the most of their existing systems, processes and business data.

We’re also delighted to confirm that Robin Mannings – well-renowned futurologist and public speaker in telecommunications, intelligent transportation, positioning systems and spatial information will also be providing a talk. Having retired from corporate employment in 2009 after 20 years in BT’s Research Department, Robin is now a freelance futurologist with special interest in Navigation, Positioning, Tracking, Digital Geography and Intelligent Transportation.

The evening will conclude with refreshments and a chance to network amongst other delegates, so it’s shaping up to be a great night – we hope to see you there!
