)-- Roosevelt Strategic Council (RSC) and Defense Strategies Institute (DSI) are accepting exhibitors and sponsorships at the 2019 GeoData Summit, taking place on March 20-21, 2019. The 2019 GeoData Summit brings together members of the GIS community across Agriculture, Utilities, Transportation, Infrastructure, and Government for an open dialogue about how the current revolution in Geospatial technologies is transforming real-time decision-making through enhanced data collection.
This year’s agenda has been curated to provide ample networking breaks, and discussions in a “town hall” setting, in order to foster communication between exhibitors, attendees and speakers. RSC and DSI regard sponsors as partners, and work with them to provide a custom event experience designed to meet the partnering organizations’ goals. To this end, the input and expertise of sponsors and exhibitors is welcomed in order to create a campaign that is tailor-made.
This year’s confirmed speakers include:
· Kevin Hope, Deputy Director of Source, NGA
· Ted Okada, SES, CTO, FEMA
· Timothy Quinn, Associate CIO, USGS
· Pamela K. Isom, Deputy CIO, Chief Data Officer, U.S. Department of Energy

· David F. LaBranche, GIO, ODASD Infrastructure
· Harry Bader, Executive Director, U.S. Global Development Lab, USAID
· Tiffany Gibby, Manager, GIS & Mapping, TVA· Andy Dearing, CEO, Boundless Geo
The goal of this year’s summit is to support the development of geospatial information systems and emerging technology trends such as: spatiotemporal data generation, IoTs, geospatial sensor platforms, wireless networks, and computer capacity. This educational forum will provide the chance to further understand how the integration of advanced geodata technologies has profoundly altered the current data collection capabilities of individuals from all sectors for mission critical purposes, including disaster response, environmental monitoring, public safety, and warfighter protection.
Seating is limited to allow for actionable discussion in a “Town Hall” format. Active military, government and state personnel attend free of charge. Those interested in participating in the 2019 GeoData summit may visit the website at rscouncil.org/geodata.
