HxGN LIVE 2018 – Thursday, 14 June 

Welcome to Day 3 of HxGN LIVE! 

We have another day packed with more hands-on training, breakout sessions, and technology showcases! Do not miss tonight’s evening event, “Accelerate,” at TAO, the award-winning nightclub with an Asian flare. Choose from Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and sushi for the best eats! 

Wednesday’s highlight was the Geospatial Track Keynote, “Bridging the Divide – Smart Digital Reality,” with President Mladen Stojic.  Bridging the divide between location and intelligence, Mladen showed how Hexagon Geospatial, with the recent inclusion of the Luciad portfolio, is transforming location from merely points displayed on a map into an integrated 5D platform that can deliver the vast amounts of intelligence that can turn cities into smart cities. This smart digital reality incorporates real-time situational awareness and predictive analytics that also empowers decision makers in the defense & intelligence, maritime, and aviation communities. 

Another highlight from last night was “Rewind to the 90’s,” the Geospatial track party that was held offsite at the INDUSTRIAL Event Space. Attendees were encouraged to celebrate fashion back in the day by dressing in their best 90’s attire. Did the event live up to all the hype? Ask Jay Pongonis, Hexagon Geospatial Senior Product Marketing Manager, winner of the $100 gift card in 90’s costume contest! 

Congratulations to Special Operations Solutions for receiving the Shaping Smart Change award yesterday! Don’t miss their break-out session, 3301 – Enhancing Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination using Contextual Aerial Video. 

Also, note the Defense luncheon today, session 3310 – Evolving NGA partnerships with the private sector.
