Hanover -- 8 October 2012 -- The enormous importance of geoinformation for the energy revolution, cloud computing, open data and enterprise applications based on Microsoft Bing Maps – these are just some of the many fascinating issues that will take centre stage at INTERGEO in Hanover from 9 to 11 October. Host DVW e.V. – the German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management – is pooling all the issues that are relevant to its specialist areas at the trade fair and conference and is set to welcome some 16,000 visitors, including 1,200 conference delegates. The most important international meeting place for the sector, which takes place in a different German city each year, is carrying forward the torch for innovation and vision in the industry. And around 520 international companies – almost 40 percent of which are based outside Germany – are supporting it.
On the first day of the fair, Cornelia Rogall-Grothe, State Secretary at the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, is launching the first national INSPIRE Conference on the opening day with a speech on “INSPIRE – the driving force behind the national geodata infrastructure”. This year, for the first time, INTERGEO will incorporate the Conference of the Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE). On Thursday, the third conference of its type brings together surveyors from 36 member countries in Hanover.
The Navigation Conference is being held as part of INTERGEO for the second time. Once again, the event will seek to utilise synergies between navigation, IT and geoinformation.
The conference is focussing on the latest topics and many technical solutions for capturing up-to-date geoinformation. And cutting-edge sensor echnology will be presented along with the latest systems solutions.
INTERGEO 2012 in Hanover is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from 9 to 11 October. Image material and other information can be found on site at the press centre and online at www.intergeo.de.
