Join EARSC’s workshop on Copernicus

In The (virtual) SeBS Results Workshop on 18th and 19th November, we shall tell the story of how Copernicus is delivering value to European citizens. The monetary benefit is clearly important and of strong interest but often it is other types of benefit, for example for the environment, which are more important. Each of the 25 case studies, which have been analysed by the SeBS team, will be presented by some of its key stakeholders to inform participants of the […]

COP26 “atmosfair” EUROGI action

During COP26, EUROGI confirms its commitment to a more sustainable world. Following our participation in the GeoSpatial World Forum in Amsterdam, we decided to offset the carbon footprint of our presence at this event (flights, meeting rooms, meals, hotel nights, …) in collaboration with the specialised company www.atmosfair.de . Some may rightly say that this is a drop in the ocean… we say that if other associations and organisations join us, there will be a snowball effect. We started this […]

How can we unlock a human-centric simulation for a better urban future?

Our built environment is more than a 3D-space – it is dynamic and full of movement. Constant, daily fluctuations change the way we move or make use of services. The fifth WDBE2021 Community Session will explore the potential of geospatial digital twins in its journey to unlock urban supersensing. The benefits of the digital twins are becoming increasingly apparent in Smart urban design as these tools increase efficiency and data-driven decisions. With knowledge, we can understand our movement and behaviour, […]

Next Generation Geospatialists

News from AGEO, Austria One issue faced by geospatial professions nearly worldwide is a perceived lack of students moving into these fields. ‘Perceived’, to some degree, because there are few crisp divisions between and definitions of disciplines, perhaps with the exception of surveying engineers authorized for e.g. cadastral surveying. Otherwise, we observe a lot of horizontal mobility between digital fields. Computationally competent professionals getting spatialized, Geographers and Planners going digital, and continuing education focusing less on updating but re-skilling and […]

Successful BEGEO 2020

On 27 October 2020, AM/FM-GIS Belux participated in THE annual national GI event in Belgium, called ‘BEGEO: The Ultimate Connection’. In this troubled year, the base line was very relevant, people need to connect and when live encounters are difficult, the online events offer an appreciable alternative, although they can of course not replace the real life face-to-face experiences. Despite the difficult conditions, we had a nice celebration of our annual GeoSpatial Awards, an event that AM/FM-GIS has run for […]

Brugstedet.dk – a catalogue of inspiration

The GI domain is packed with examples on how spatial data can add and create value. We are, however, not always that good at communicating this – we tend to talk a lot about the “what” and the “how” and not so much about the “why”. Experience shows that outside our GI domain people are not that interested in projections, the noble art of geo coding or other technical sophistry – but they love and can relate to a good […]
