GIS Professional June 2017

In this issue, we take a look at the three international bodies which are driving the global geospatial agenda: OGC, GEO and UN-GGIM; The use of administrative data for purposes other than those it was collected for has become an essential data resource for health and social science research; New Zealand’s Department of Conservation have been supplied with tablets and smartphones equipped with Survey123 for ArcGIS; and a look at how the IoT phenomenon has revolutionised almost every sector in the world, including Digital Twins.

Also, GIS Professional conducted a market and applications survey. With over 200 responses, we gained an interesting insight into the current GIS landscape; and the GeoPlace Annual Conference took place on 11 May 2017 at the Leeds United Football Club with over 350 people attending, Joost Boers reports.
