Geospatial Caravan – Embracing One and All
This year’s Geospatial World Forum was held in Rotterdam during the first week of May. Traditionally, the General Board Meeting (GBM) of the European Umbrella Organization for Geographic Information (EUROGI) takes place during this international conference. As a member of the German Umbrella Organization for Geographic Information (DDGI), Benedikt Gräler (52°North General Manager and Head of Research) attended the GBM as DDGI’s European delegate. In addition to the regular business of a GBM, EUROGI also signed an MoU with EuroGeographics to cooperate in promoting the use of geospatial data . Ben was also part of an EUROGI discussion panel on the topic of current advances in AI for geospatial application. The discussion focused on what future developments might look like, building on the capabilities of large language models (LLM) like ChatGPT.
