Locate21 Program now live, speakers announced

New York State Police’s Senior Intelligence Analyst, Kellen Crouse, will provide an inside look at the crucial role of geospatial analysis in solving a missing person case turned homicide. From visualising witness statements, to recovering evidence and organising search teams, GIS helped bring closure and justice to a rural New York town.

Exploring the conference theme of ‘Convergence, Collaboration and Community – towards a stronger economy’, it delves deep into streams about data & digital twins, surveying and the new technologies out there, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), how location aids a resilient environment, and so much more.

From engaging plenary speakers, through thought-provoking streams, collaborative discussions within the Virtual Locate Hub, workshops demonstrating the latest ideas & technology and even to virtual coffee tasting, Locate21 is not to be missed!
