The second GKI Summit will focus on advancing industry adoption
The geospatial ecosystem is growing and evolving, encompassing the digital industry and most user industry sectors. Users of the 4and The Industrial Revolution (4IR) would seek to generate knowledge quickly, but currently, the knowledge needed to solve challenges is built over time and cannot be delivered “on demand,” diminishing impact.
The complexity of the knowledge ecosystem and the diversity of use cases are such that organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver end-to-end solutions in silos. It is imperative to bridge the gap between geospatial, digital and user communities to make dynamic geospatial data and knowledge fit for purpose easily accessible to users across all sectors. Partnerships and collaborations across the ecosystem are inevitable and becoming increasingly common, with an increased need for rewards to be shared across the value chain.
The Geospatial Knowledge Infrastructure Partner Alliance Project brings together stakeholders (government, industry, research and academia, etc.) from geospatial, digital and user industries over 3 phases to develop strategies and action plans to make geospatial data fit for purpose. and on-demand knowledge for use cases across industries.
In the first phase of the project, the concept of GKI was developed from a geospatial point of view, resulting in a GKI White Paper. Phase two of the project aims to strengthen engagement with broad defined industry sectors to assess the maturity of geospatial adoption in user sectors, identify industry requirements, enablers and challenges for adoption, and envision strategies for the transformation of the geospatial ecosystem. As part of phase 2 of the project, the following activities are carried out to achieve the objectives of the phase:
- Industry-specific virtual seminars and in-person workshops
- Global and regional capacity building programs
- Evaluation and evaluation of the technology architecture for the transition to GKI
- Raising awareness through conferences and media to socialize the concept of GKI
- User Industry Value Proposition Report and GKI Readiness Index
Based on lessons learned from Phases 1 and 2, Phase 3 of the project will aim to co-create national and regional level strategies and roadmaps for the transition to knowledge infrastructure. This collaborative process of co-creating policies, standards, strategies and solutions aims to move from the existing centralized data infrastructure, centered on data and supply, to a distributed cloud-based knowledge infrastructure, focused on analysis and demand, which makes geospatial knowledge accessible to all. all.
GKI Summit – identifying the industry value proposition
The second edition of GKI Summit must take place on 24and and 25and February 2022 focusing on the theme of promoting industry adoption. With the aim of projecting the value proposition of geospatial knowledge across user sectors and identifying the maturity of adopting geospatial knowledge in workflows, 70 esteemed speakers will deliberate on the way forward for the evolution of the geospatial ecosystem during 14 sessions. The summit will feature dedicated sessions for certain user sectors, including Logistics & Supply Chain, Transport & Infrastructure, Cities, Energy Transition, Land Administration, Agriculture, Public Safety & Security, and Autonomous Driving identify the adoption of geospatial knowledge in sectoral workflows.
