This year, the event will focus on accelerating the delivery of GEO’s Strategic Plan and will bring the GEO community together to strengthen the impact of Earth observations. The events throughout the week will ensure that data about our planet becomes a primary input to strategic decision making and critical to day-to-day economic and environmental decisions. Access the dedicated GEO Week 2019 website which includes a week at a glance, what to expect, and links to detailed event information.
Not only has FrontierSI secured a booth alongside some notable exhibitors, but we are also facilitating various workshops as part of GEO Week’s Industry Track. Find out times and locations of all FrontierSI-led workshops by accessing the Industry Track Program.
So, if you’re attending, drop into booth #7 and speak to us about our expertise and knowledge in spatial mapping, infrastructures, positioning, geodesy, analytics and standards; and how we deliver major benefits to governments, industry and the community.
Earth Science Week 2019 will be celebrated during the week of October 13-19, 2019 with the theme: Geoscience is for everyone!
Aligned with ongoing efforts to enhance diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the sciences, this theme acknowledges both the potential and the importance of the geosciences in the lives of all people.
Providing geospatial capacity for the indigenous community
The Indigenous Mapping Workshop (IMW) and its strategic partners are dedicated to the development and advancement of culturally appropriate and inclusive geospatial technologies for Indigenous leadership, agencies, and communities to support Indigenous rights and interests.
Australia’s coastline was subject to over 30 tsunamis since 1950, most generated by distant earthquakes in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Some induced hazardous marine currents and inundation. Should we expect larger tsunamis in future? Where? How big? How often?
