MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica emerged from the perception of its founders on issues that had the biggest influence in major social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Thus, an objective of the event is to connect, either in person or online, users of geotechnologies, so there is an exchange of ideas on the current view of the industry. Geocommunities Workshop, for example, will be a space for participants of any group who can meet and exchange ideas and information.
