The GeOnG 2012 was closed Tuesday night with a very positive balance: 130 attendees, 50 organizations, 11 different nationalities were gathered in Chambéry to share and learn on the use of mapping and information management for humanitarian action. This edition has reached a new level in terms of visibility and size thanks to the use of conference center Le Manège (many thanks to the Chambéry city council that lend it to us pro bono) and to the support of our main partners ESRI, MAIF, WebGeoServices, GeoVantage and SenseFly.
We hope to see even more of you for the next edition in two years! Let’s also hope that the ideas we advocate of professionalization of the sector and sharing of data have advanced then.
However, GeOnG 2012 is not completely over. You will find in the following weeks the videos of the plenaries and roundtables (recorded but the students of Chambéry IUT) and the chairperson’s resume of the sessions. You can already have a look at the conferences and professional workshops’ presentations on our website. The radio France Bleu Pays de Savoie also recorded a report on GeOnG (in French).
Last but not least, check out this spherical model built by Chris Hepp (APDER) during the Forum (if you see yourself on it, please send us your identification).
See you at #geong2014!
