The GSDI 12 World Conference will take place in the garden city of Singapore from 19 to 22 October 2010. The Partners in organizing this conference include the GSDI Association, Permanent Committee on GIS Infrastructure for Asia & the Pacific (PCGIAP) and Singapore Land Authority (SLA).

There are three major components in this conference:

  • The 12th edition of the GSDI Conference;
  • The 16th annual meeting of the Permanent Committee on GIS Infrastructure for Asia & the Pacific (PCGIAP); and
  • Trade Exhibition.
The theme for this conference is Realising Spatially Enabled Societies.

Geographic information technologies and spatial data infrastructure play critical roles in allowing governments, local communities, non-government organizations, the commercial sector, the academic community and common people to make progress in addressing many of the world’s most pressing problems. Further, use of spatial data in conjunction with mobile technologies is becoming pervasive within many nations. While mapping and spatial data infrastructure development was previously roles accomplished only by governments, this is no longer the case. All sectors of society are becoming spatially enabled and contributing to the development of the global spatial data infrastructure. Whether using hand-held devices incorporating phones, cameras, GPS, maps and location services or using sensors and wireless communications embedded within our homes, offices, stores, vehicles and along our travel paths, citizens are helping to build the next generations of spatial data infrastructure through their contributions of location and descriptive data.

This conference will explore the complementary roles of government, private industry and the academic community in realizing better means for sharing geographic data and technologies and developing improved location-based services for meeting real world needs.

Singapore is a dynamic city rich in contrast and colour, you'll find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture here. Brimming with unbridled energy, this little dynamo in Southeast Asia embodies the finest of both East and West. We invite you to come and engage yourself in intellectual exchange with leaders and experts in the geospatial industry.


"I look forward to welcoming you to the GSDI 12 world conference in 2010 in Singapore. This conference will provide the leading opportunity in 2010 to share and discuss issues in the design and development of spatial data infrastructures and to explore innovative approaches for spatially enabling societies which is the theme of this conference".

"The Singapore Land Authority is delighted to host GSDI 12 World Conference in 2010. This is an excellent platform for the international community to exchange and share their geospatial knowledge and experience. My colleagues and I look forward to welcoming you to Singapore."

Vincent Hoong

"The 16th PCGIAP Meeting in conjunction with GSDI 12 World Conference on 19-22 October 2010 in Singapore will certainly bring a wealth of knowledge and inspiration to the geospatial community of the Asia-Pacific Region and the rest of the world."
