Blog: Unlocking the value of location data – Smarter Data Smarter World Conference Government Day

Author: Matthew White, 1Spatial

With less than 2 weeks to go before 1Spatial's first online Smarter Data, Smarter World (SDSW) Conference, taking place between 9th and 12th November 2020, I would like to talk about the Government focused day on Tuesday 10th November. I will be chairing the Government day and I am looking forward to the opportunity for us to share insights, best practice and innovations relating to unlocking the value of location data.

We will take a deep dive into how we're working with Government sectors globally. Through a mix of live demonstrations and customer presentations, we will discuss how we are enabling innovation and development by harnessing the power of geospatial data. This helps maintain public trust in Government decision-making and accelerates the delivery of economic, social, and environmental benefits derived from geospatial data.

We are delighted to welcome industry keynote speakers and panellists to our Government event. Please find further information about the Government event schedule here.

Dan Warner, Head of 1Spatial's Government and Land Management team will open our Government event. Carol Agius from EuroGeographics and John Kimmance from Ordnance Survey Great Britain will talk about the strategic value and need for authoritative data, benefiting our economy, environment, and society. Seb Lessware, 1Spatial's Chief Technology Officer will discuss the use of technology to unlock the value of location data across government. Éamonn Clinton from Ordnance Survey Ireland will present a case study focusing on national mapping and Ireland's COVID response.

During the panel session we will be joined by industry experts and thought leaders answering questions and exchanging thoughts on the use of authoritative data, and the importance of its quality on a local, national, and international level.

Following on from the panel session we will hear from Christiana Clark about the Greater London Authority's role as consumers and custodians of authoritative data and a case study of the National Underground Asset Register in London. Chad Baker from the California Department of Transportation will talk about data governance and data quality, enhancing transparency and decision making. Mark Holmes from the State of Michigan will conclude the event and present a case study about bringing data together through technology and collaboration.

I think that this schedule for government will demonstrate how organisations are unlocking the value of location data and maintaining public trust in government decision-making using authoritative data.

Our free online conference will highlight the challenges and opportunities facing our industry - and through a combination of presentations and demonstrations we will show you a variety of novel and innovative ways to address these challenges.

If you are looking to discover how accurate and conformant data can drive better business decisions, how automation can revolutionise your workflows, or are interested in learning more about some of the latest industry trends and drivers, we welcome you to register for SDSW.

Our goal is to enable you to make evidence-based business decisions and leave SDSW with a deeper understanding of the potential of exploiting 1Spatial innovation to unlock the value of your location data.

We look forward to welcoming you to the first online Smarter Data, Smarter World Conference, taking place between 9th and 12th November.
