Last year I pretty much gave up on the AGI conference as it did not seem to be representative of the Geographic Industry I could see around me. However over the past few months my attitude has begun to change, finally I pushed into completely reversing my opinion my this communication..
Yes,this is a Twitter message from AGI conference organisers announcing a stream at the conference addressing the issues and potential of the Geoweb, mobile applications, mash ups etc.
Its great to see the AGI making use of Twitter, as it is a mechanism to communicate with a whole new generation of GI developers and users.
This is a great opportunity for both communities to learn from each other, and I hope is a reflection of the AGI actually moving to represent the wider community of Geographic Information users, rather than just a fan club for it’s largest corporate sponsor.
See you in Birmingham !!
