More on Map India 2004...


Hi Susan,


I was there at Map India 2004 at the Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi from 28-30 January, 2004.


It was a great show. Around 850 paid delegates were there and about 100 of those were from India. There were several hundred attendees who were invited by different companies and given guest passes.


The companies who participated in the exhibition were: HP, Rolta, Bae Systems, Speck Systems Limited, Elcome Technologies, RMSI, PCI Geomatics, ESRI India, Intergraph and a few small Indian companies.


I attended sessions on Water Resources ( Integration of Thematic Maps Though GIS for Identification of Ground water Potential Zones), Defence & Internal Security, Interoperability ( A practical Implementation of Open GIS standards), GPS, Disaster Management ( An Integrated approach with GIS and remote sensing techniques for landslide hazard Zonation), Technology Trends, Marine Application (Semi-automatic multi-level approach for extraction of tidal channels from aerial photographs and hyperspectral data), Geology(Relationship between Lineaments Identified on Space Images and Epicentres : Case Study Arabian Rift Zone). They were going parallel so it was not possible to attend all at the same
time.


The show was perceived as a successful and useful event by the people who attended.


In all, the show was good and well arranged with good opportunities for people involved with GIS and related technologies.

Thanks
