In this ISKO UK and BCS joint meeting, we will hear from experts about the current geospatial information landscape and its challenges, some of the standards and frameworks that have been put into place to ensure interoperability and the potential for linking data. We will also hear how some users of GIS systems have applied them in their own organizations.

The event is free to ISKO and BCS members and to full-time students. The fee for non-members is just £40, payable in advance. Registration opens at 1.45, immediately following the ISKO UK AGM, and we shall start promptly at 2 p.m.

The programme will be followed by a chance to network, with wine and nibbles.  The topics and speakers are:

• The landscape and challenges of geospatial information in 2012 – Mike Sanderson, 1Spatial

• INSPIRE and the work of UK Location – Alex Coley, Chair of the UK Location Programme Architecture & Interoperability Board

• Linking geographic data for research – Jo Walsh, EDINA
