CAPIGI joins forces with Geospatial World Forum

24-26 May 2016 - Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The 6th edition of the Community on Agricultural Policy Implementation and Geo-Information (CAPIGI) will collaborate with the Geospatial World Forum (GWF) to jointly present and discuss the latest trends, innovations and issues in the application of spatial data in agriculture. The joint CAPIGI-GeoAgri conference will focus on The Next Level in Spatial Data, Smart Farming and New Business. It provides the 150 participants the opportunity to be part of the whole GWF, while still maintaining its particular focus on agriculture. The GeoAgri programme has been a part of the Geospatial World Forum for many years. It discusses the value of geospatial technology in enhanced decision making, effectively managing resources and assets, enhancing the efficiency of workflows, and improving the accessibility of information. It focuses on the use of geo-spatial data for improved and sustainable agriculture. The GeoAgri session in 2015 brought forward the latest innovations, technologies and tools within agriculture and tried bringing a new wave of farming. http://www.geospatialworldforum.org/
