Location Intelligence 2014
May 19 - 21
Directions Magazine, Oracle Corporation, HERE, A Nokia Company, and The Eclipse Foundation are collaborating to offer a multi-track event over two and one-half days in Washington, D.C., at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The focus is the expanding ecosystem of location intelligence in business and government.
The theme is “Location Analytics and Visual Data Discovery … New Pathways to Business Intelligence,” which reflects the demand by businesses and government to analyze a variety of location-based information, especially mobile sensors, social media, indoor positioning technology — all leading to a greater volume and velocity expected from myriad data sources. The goal is to provide a forum for technology solution providers that are developing new tools to quickly analyze these “big data” challenges and offer applications in a secure, cloud architecture.
On May 19, educational workshops will be offered by various solution providers offering educational session on geospatial technology applications.
May 20 begins with a look at how location intelligent solutions are enabling myriad organizations to deploy location analytics with data visualization and discovery techniques for a clearer picture of the volume and velocity of geospatial data. Also, both HERE and the Eclipse Foundation’s LocationTech Working Group will open their Summits with tracks on data products and open source geospatial technology, respectively.
On May 21, the Oracle Spatial Summit will kick off with additional educational and training sessions. User presentations and the annual awards luncheon will also be held and the day will conclude with a user group session and networking social event.
