GEO Summit is a National Annual Convention, conducted with an objective to provide an interactive platform for the Geospatial Researchers, Academicians, Scientists and the Practitioners in the area of Geospatial applications. It is a gathering of Eminent Personalities in the field of Geospatial Studies, Principal Investigators (PIs’), Scientists, Researchers and Professionals from all over India, to discuss and to deliberate upon various aspects of geospatial technology. GEO Summit -2011, is first in a series of Annual Conventions to be conducted in future. Sathyabama University, Chennai, Tamil Nadu is honored to organize the first Annual Convention, which thrusts on the area of Geospatial Technology- a technology used for visualization, measurement and analysis of features or phenomena that occur on the earth. The First Convention will lead a road map for the future conventions to be held in various parts of the country. This three -day programme will encourage delegates to deliberate upon concerns, issues, opportunities and challenges of each stakeholder in this domain to find out some common grounds and strategies in order to help each other and contribute to the overall growth of geospatial technology. Since, Indian geospatial research is fast growing and maturing, the Convention intends to focus on the significance of geospatial technology in understanding the complex interaction between and among different components like natural resource inventory, management, development, atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere etc. In the recent past, the important services that are enabled by geospatial technologies include proper understanding of climate and weather conditions. Ocean and sea bed mapping is the next big frontier in Geospatial area, as it provides the researchers and the industry an opportunity to venture into newer frontiers, as the future generations will increasingly depend on oceans for their resources. In this context, GEO Summit -2011 presents a unique opportunity for all those involved in the area of Geospatial Technology as it offers good takeaways for every academicians, scientists, policy makers, application engineers, researchers and general public.
