Geo The Big 5

Mallon Technology is pleased to announce that we will be attending the second leg of Geo: The Big 5 series of events hosted by AGI Northern Ireland. The event will take place in Belfast on the 13th May in the Wellington Park Hotel.

To mark AGI’s 25th anniversary they have decided to go on tour across the UK to tackle the 5 big issues of the moment in the Geospatial industry. The second leg of the six event series aims to explore the challenges and opportunities arising from Open Geospatial. The rise of Open (source, data and standards) has had an undeniable impact on the geospatial sector, spawning a host of new solutions and businesses each bringing a variety of benefits and challenges. The issues that need to be considered alongside the opportunities that need to be explored will be under the microscope and outlined at the event.

The event will feature presentations from industry experts and one from our very own Brendan Sheehy whose presentation is titled GIS Open for Business. It will discuss the potential for small and medium sized businesses to take advantage of GIS, explaining the benefits GIS could bring to them, why there has been poor take up of GIS in the past and examples of what businesses could achieve with GIS.

Mallon Technology will additionally be taking up a place amongst the exhibition spaces, showcasing our recent work and providing information on our products and services. If you will be there on the day, please call over to our stand and introduce yourself.
