Andreas Schulze Baing talking at the Geo Business Conference in London

19 May 2017

The Geo Business conference is well known for featuring cutting edge presentations that explore the impact of advances in geospatial technology and services and how it is shaping our future.

The conference takes place on the 23 and 24 May at the Business Design Centre, London and features keynote speeches from Nigel Clifford, Chief Executive Officer of Ordnance Survey; Brent Jones, Global Manager Land Records/Cadastre, Esri, USA; Sadie Morgan, Design Panel Chair of HS2 and a Government Security Engineer.

Andreas is presenting his paper titled 'Spatial awareness - using mapping overlays to identify policy synergies and conflicts'. The following is an abstract: 

Using mapping overlays is commonly used by GIS professionals. Despite this, in practice it is rare to see an awareness of spatial contexts, synergies and conflicts between different policy sectors. This paper, based on a study for the Map4England initiative of the RTPI, reports on its key findings followed by illustrating selected examples linking household growth projections to areas of relative water stress and key landscape designations. In addition the paper also refers to the practice of spatial monitoring and planning in other European countries.
