    BePrepared was held on May 1st & 2nd 2024 

    Technological developments in recent years are nothing short of remarkable. Geospatial disciplines are evolving along with many of the technological changes that present growth opportunities for individuals and businesses. Some of the developments, such as Artificial Intelligence and Digital Twins represent a quantum leap forward in the way we access, interact and use information.

    To stay relevant in the field, geospatial and information professionals should “BePrepared”.

    They should be aware of how these technological developments and trends can be applied to their work, continually learn new skills and adapt to the ever-changing work environment.

    Geospatial plays a crucial role in many industries and is also impacted by technological breakthroughs that are affecting designing and creating business solutions. Some of the skills the geospatial industry requires are:

    • Creative systems thinking
    • Analytical skills
    • Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
    • Understanding of ethical and privacy concerns
    • Service orientation and customer service
    • Remote Work and Collaboration

    The 2024 Annual General Meeting virtual conference BePrepared (May 1st and 2nd, 2024) will provide an opportunity for geospatial and information professionals to showcase their achievements, and best practices and discuss challenges in preparing for and adapting to the predicted and unpredicted changes in future.
