The GeoIT Wherecamp Conference is a premier conference focusing on the latest research insights around GeoIoT, GNSS, digital mapping, (autonomous) mobility and spatial intelligence of the GeoIT domain including industry and academic institutions.

This year we will once again be joined by industry leaders, subject matter experts and map enthusiasts who will share their vision and exchange ideas. Navigation with smartphones is often be considered as the key innovation of the enduring 21st century. Few could have predicted the rapid growth at which GeoIT Navigation with Web Maps and Location based Apps gained traction and start change the way humans navigate and interact with the world around them.

Similar to “Web 2.0 / Geoweb Infrastructures” in the year 2005, a “Mobile / Location Based Apps 2.0” (LBA) phase, benefiting from Android chipsets RAW GNSS raw data access for sub-meter level outdoor positioning using differential techniques (RTK, PPP, DGPS) and dual frequencies chips in the mass market is expected. A new “IoT / GeoIoT 1.0” age with AR is pushing the digital frontier forward in the indoors already. AR annotations can expand the (geospatial) interaction socially, e.g. leaving an AR-message for guests at the high-tech coffee machine. New main methods from the digital frontier after edit(), calculate(), publish(), transport(), integrate(), navigation(), sense() and habitize() with their derived applications and at the end also worldwide IT/GeoIT players are expected in the next seven years until 2025. Autonomous driving and flying are major long-term developments with the potential of a new Kondratiev-Cycle for 50 years.

In the years ahead, how will consumer expectations and business needs continue to evolve? What challenges will the GeoIT industry need to overcome? How will spatial data, algorithms, interactive maps and location sensors need to adapt? Which new hardware will be required? What is the “equivalent of TCP/IP” for the spatially supported material transport? In which way will indoor positioning sensors, IoT, autonomous cars and drones evolve?
