From December 14 to 16, the 3rd International Workshop on GIS Technology and Application was held online. Over 190 government officials, university professors, and enterprises and others in the field of geographic information from 44 countries, like Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Egypt, Greece, Kazakhstan, Laos, Mongolia, have participated in the workshop online.
The workshop is co-sponsored by Chinese Society for Geodesy Photogrammetry and Cartography (CSGPC) and International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), organized by SuperMap Software Co., Ltd., hosted by the GIS International Training College of CSGPC and together with GIS College of SuperMap University. Due to the epidemic, this year's workshop has been held offline to online, connecting guests, lecturers, and students from Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America.
Prof. Dr. Rudolf Staiger, President of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), and Peng Zhenzhong, Secretary General of Chinese Society for Geodesy Photogrammetry and Cartography, delivered opening speeches to the participants. In their speeches, they all express warmly welcome to all participants and hope to strengthen international exchanges in the field of geographic information through this workshop, promote beneficial cooperation between GIS vendors and global governments, enterprises, and universities.
The workshop focuses on 3D GIS, artificial Geo-intelligence, Geo-blockchain technology and other GIS software key technologies, development trends and classic applications. The first two days, business leaders, experts, scholars, and professors from all over the world gave presentations on GIS-related courses. Zhong Ershun, Chairman of SuperMap, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kainz, Full professor of the Department of Geography and Regional Research, University of Vienna, Austria, and Prof. Dr. Liu Yu, School of Earth and Space Science, Peking University delivered reports respectively with titles of "The Role of GIS in Building Smart", "Spatio-Temporal Modeling and Analysis: Developments, Challenges, and Prospects for GIS" and "Social Sensing from Big-Data: Methods and Applications".
On the 3rd day of the workshop, a practical session is set up to demonstrate product functions online, and it provide remote operation guidance for participants to use SuperMap GIS to mine the value of spatial information and make rich geographic information visualization applications.
At the closing ceremony, 5 representatives expressed their feelings on the three-day workshop, saying that this workshop is a rare GIS technology and application exchange platform on a global scale, which is conducive to the local GIS practitioners’ understanding of advanced GIS technology and applications.
In the last, Wang Haitao, President of SuperMap International, delivered a closing speech.
