Spatial Technology Gallery

Spatial Technology Gallery:
a special event at the 2007 Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting

Wednesday, April 18, 2007, 7:00pm-9:00pm,

Conference Room Yosemite B, Hilton San Francisco, located at 333
O'Farrell Street San Francisco, CA 94102

On Wednesday evening, a select group of researchers from academia, government labs, and industry have been invited to demonstrate their latest, cutting-edge spatially-enabled technologies. The format will be simultaneous demos--a mix of science fair, test drive, and show-and-tell. This organic event will provide an opportunity to examine and discuss the technology and incubating ideas that will be impacting in coming weeks, months, and years, with the pioneering minds that are making them. We anticipate topics spanning virtual globes, augmented reality, open source mapping projects, internet GIS, environmental simulation and prediction, map mashups, and mobile spatial data collection.

This "after hours" event is open to anyone interested in spatial technology, so you will not need to register for the AAG meeting to attend. If you want to participate in any other aspects of the AAG meeting, however, you would need to register and pay like normal.
