After a very successful GeoMeetup series in 2017, we’re entering the new year full of optimism and enthusiasm!
With your great support and interest, the GeoMeetup platform is growing in numbers and quality of the program. Our goal for 2018 is to position the platform as a central place for gathering experts, companies, and individuals in the GEO industry. For that matter, we are planning to introduce some novelties. In addition to classic lectures, we look forward to exploring the community’s interest in organizing workshops and forums on various topics. The GeoMeetup platform is constantly looking for new lecturers, so we encourage you to apply by filling out the form.
In the last GeoMeetup, we had a chance to listen to Alen Berta who held a lecture on the ‘Sentinel2 multispectral satellite images and their application in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and ecology’. Andrija Antolović gave a talk on the ‘National Protection and Rescue Directorate GIS system – Fire and explosion hazards mapping in the Republic of Croatia’. The presentations are online and available for download at this link.
