I have just returned from the Informed Solutions international conference held this year in Estepona, Spain. I presented an overview of the Ordnance Survey and a stab at the dynamics of the future Geodata market.
This was my first time at this conference and I must admit I was rather impressed by the format, a few industry figures, a few of Informed customers and a large proportion of Informed Solutions staff spent a couple of days discussing GI strategy, enabling technologies, organisational issues and successful case studies. What I think stood out was the lack of “hard sell” and the spirt of openess that resulted, I got the feeling that everybody there, was there, with the expectation to learn something!
