4th ISDE Digital Earth Summit―Digital Earth and Technology
2 - 4 September 2012
We are very pleased to announce that the 4th Digital Earth Summit of the International Society for Digital Earth will be held in Wellington, New Zealand, from 2 to 4 September, 2012. This Summit with theme of “Digital Earth and Technology” will focus on digital earth science and technology, including advanced earth observation systems, augmented reality and visualisation, high-performance computation and simulation, and spatial data infrastructures. Wellington City Council and Land Information New Zealand have partnered to bring the 4th Digital Earth Summit to Wellington. The Summit will bring the best speakers from overseas and from New Zealand to exchange knowledge and explore technology advancement in this exciting area.
This summit is an event of the series activities of the International Society for Digital Earth. Built on the success of past ISDE symposia and summits, the summit will back to New Zealand. To date, the inaugural summit was held in Auckland in 2006 with former Prime Minister of New Zealand Helen Clark opening the event. With the launch of the Digital Earth Vision for 2020 last year, more in-depth discussions will be made to develop Digital Earth as a scientific, dynamic framework to share data and information globally and improve our collective understanding of the complex relationships between society and the environment. You are cordially invited to participate in this summit, and join the Digital Earth research community.
