A free-to-attend conference for UK Government

Liverpool 17th April and London 26th April

GIS for Government

"Working together"

For government departments and local authorities, improving public services against a backdrop of constrained resources is a challenge. It calls for innovation, streamlining of processes and collaborative working.

This conference will look at GIS as more than a location intelligence tool but as a means to promote better collaboration. This includes:

  • Mapping integration with existing systems
  • Web Service connectivity
  • Interoperability with existing back office systems
  • Collaboration with partner technology

This conference will explore the practical technological benefits of GIS and its role in enabling systems to work together.

Who should attend?

This free-to-attend conference is aimed at those who work in central or local government. It will be of interest to those requiring more information on the benefits of GIS technology and its potential when integrating with other systems.

It will be relevant to delegates who are looking for new ideas to build upon an existing GIS infrastructure or those who are new to the industry.

Breaks and a free lunch will provide ample opportunity for networking with like-minded professionals.
