CAPIGI joins forces with Geospatial World Forum December 2015
The 6th edition of 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. CAPIGI will organize a three day track with the GWF, dedicated to agriculture on 24-26 May 2016 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
The Community on Agricultural Policy Implementation and Geo-Information (CAPIGI) is the perfect place for geo-information experts active in agriculture to meet their colleagues within this field; from government to industry to research. The diversity of participants allows CAPIGI to be unique among other conferences. Due to the variety of knowledge that comes together, new innovations, ideas and solutions for the agricultural sector are being created, which benefits all those involved. During the CAPIGI conference, emerging technologies get illustrated with practice experiences in agricultural policy implementation. Workshops, plenary sessions, keynote speakers, an exhibition and more support this concept.
The GeoAgri programe 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.
Now, in collaboration with CAPIGI, forces are joined to strengthen both conferences and to add more value to the entire farming community, solution & technology providers, Researchers, Policy & advocacy levels and all other participants. With this mindset, the collaboration was brought to life. Participants gain access to a larger geospatial exhibition and great plenary conference sessions. This allows visitors to deepen their knowledge, connect to colleagues and broaden their professional network even more.
The Next Level
Over many years of scientific advances and demonstrations, it now becomes evident that the use of spatial data has reached a next level. It becomes more and more user driven and less technology driven. This means businesses are using geospatial technologies and data to bring added value to farmers, traders, advisors, machine manufacturers, policy makers, control officers and other stakeholders. CAPIGI gives insight in how this next level affects the agricultural sector and its stakeholders.
