GeoNext: the event you simply cannot afford to miss

By on 1 February, 2013

GeoNext 2013 plain 280






The rise of smartphones means that sophisticated spatial technology is no longer restricted to field workers and geo-professionals. Maps and location-based technologies are becoming as useful for someone buying a coffee as they are for someone prospecting for oil.

The cost of location-aware devices is falling, data is a commodity and the innovation in location-aware services is booming – we are only just beginning the journey into the next generation of geo services, software and solutions.
GeoNext is the event you simply cannot afford to miss.
GeoNext has been created to bring together the existing and emerging threads of geo users, businesses, and developers in the certainty that there is an immense opportunity in sharing, inspiring and connecting these geo threads. This opportunity is driving the GeoNext team to making GeoNext the premier event for geo-innovation and leadership in Australia in a few short years.
