On GIS Technology Day, technology companies around the world get together to share the advancement of geospatial science in real-world applications and the impact it is making in various industries and technology domains.
One of the key goals of CGIS is to integrate, collaborate and share GIS knowledge and technology with the community in Qatar. The event will highlight how geospatial technology has made a difference in our world, understand the success stories of GIS in Qatar and explore its growth over the years.
This year the focus of GIS Technology Day is on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and sustainability and how GIS technology can cater to it. Experts agree that combining AI with geospatial technology helps to deliver on strategic goals, discover new markets, better understand and serve customers, improve asset management, optimize supply chains, and mitigate risk.
This not only magnifies understanding and improves business but also drives digital transformation, which can lead to businesses fulfilling their sustainability goals.
Digital transformation is the core of Qatar’s economic and social development in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030. The country is moving towards adopting digital technology across all fields to accelerate digital transformation.
CGIS’s national mapping strategy lays the foundation to achieve Qatar’s growing geospatial needs by adopting smart technologies to build an efficient, connected and smart community with improved quality of life, leading to national growth and innovation.
