HxGN LIVE 2017 – Thursday, June 15


We’re back for day three of HxGN LIVE 2017! We have another fun-filled day packed with more hands-on training, breakout sessions and technology showcases, followed by tonight’s evening event, “Ultra Red” at TAO.

Wednesday’s highlight was the Geospatial Track Keynote, “Escaping the Flatlands” with President Mladen Stojic. Mladen discussed escaping the flatlands of static maps into a world of dynamic information communication. During his presentation, Mladen discussed several inspiring projects from around the world that illustrate new ways to visualize and make sense of complex information. He discussed how to make cities smarter, actionable intelligence for defense, and how geospatial technology continues to evolve to fit customer needs. The keynote also featured a special appearance by Kevin Hope, Director of NGA Foundation GEOINT.

Here’s a look at the schedule for the Geospatial Track on Thursday, June 15, 2017:
