Brazil wants to resume large infrastructure constructions

The higher demand is in the segments of oil and gas, logistics and energy. MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica event brings these topics as highlights of the program

The federal government of Brazil recently announced that major infrastructure works in the country should be resumed quickly, left behind in 2011. In the priorities list are important projects for national development, such as the airports of Guarulhos and Campinas Viracopos, besides the pre-salt.

In this case, MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2012, the largest gathering of professionals involved in geoinformation in Latin America, will take place on May 29 thru 31 in Sao Paulo (SP), will bring together professionals from these areas to discuss the use and evolution of geotechnology in the Public Sector. This time, the following topics will be approached: Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), satellite images, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), the topographic automation and quality of geospatial data, among other topics.

“Geotechnologies are presented in many stages of infrastructure works, from the collection, processing, analysis and sharing of geospatial data,” said Eduardo Freitas, technical coordinator of MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica. “During the event, experts and users of geotechnologies will meet to discuss how this range of information and technologies can boost the works and optimize investments in infrastructure,” he concludes.

Take a look the confirmed lectures that will address the infrastructure sector and geotechnologies:

On the 29, GIS courses will take place for Municipal Management and Remote Sensing. On the second day, it will be the seminars turn: Quality of Geospatial Data, GNSS & Automation Topography and Spatial Data Infrastructure course, while on the 31, it will be the E-Government Forum and the seminars Satellite Images and GIS & GeoWeb turn.

MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2012

With the theme “Sharing information for a better world”, MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2012 will emphasize the current challenge of producing geospatial data, following the standards that make their full use simple by the information system users.

In this edition, the spots available at the MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica fair of products and services were increased by 50%. Furthermore, the number of auditoriums for the activities of the event was expanded by 100% in relation to the 2011 event.
