Cancellation of the World’s Largest Symposium on Government Geospatial Data

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

The US Federal Government spends an estimated 4 billion dollars a year on commercial geospatial data. The very existence of companies like DigitalGlobe is based on government contracts. But as Washington continues to bicker over political posturing that puts party before country, the effects are starting to hit the geospatial community. Not only are the horrible and non-targeted spending reductions like the sequester indiscriminately cutting into geospatial budgets, forced furloughs due to a self-inflicted government shutdown have halted data appropriations. They have also caused the cancellation of the world’s largest symposium on government geospatial data use and purchasing, the GEOINT Symposium.
