GSDI Association Announces GSDI 2015 World Conference in Taiwan in 2016

The Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association and the Taiwan
Association of Disaster Prevention Industry (TADPI) announce the GSDI 15
Conference, to be held in Taipei, Taiwan (Republic of China) from 28
November to 2 December 2016, with strong support from Ministry of the
Interior (MOI). The theme of the conference is “Spatial Enablement in the
Smart Homeland”.

Taiwan is a beautiful country that also experiences frequent natural
disasters from earthquakes, tropical storms, flooding and landslides.
Because of these threats to the environment and population, the disaster
prevention industry in Taiwan has developed advanced technology, including
ICT (information and communications technology), applications for spatial
data, and a policy of open data to help people prepare for disasters and to
facilitate start-ups with opportunities to create innovative products and
services for disaster prevention.

The people and communities of Taiwan are happy to share their experience
with the world at the forthcoming conference. The GSDI Association is
pleased to offer TADPI the opportunity of the GSDI 15 World Conference to
achieve this aim, with strong support from Ministry of the Interior. Many
