GIM Summit Logo

FIG is an endorsing partner of The inaugural GIM International Summit. The discussions at this high-end conference will be fuelled by speakers external to the geomatics industry who will explain the needs and desires of the outside world and suggest how the geomatics sector should respond.

The Summit is an initiative of GIM International, one of the leading international magazines for the geospatial industry and takes place on 10-12 February 2016 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The FIG vision is well aligned with the scope of the GIM International Summit.

Morten Jerven and Pier Vellinga are the first two keynote speakers to be confirmed for the GIM International Summit. Jerven is an economic historian who works at the School for International Studies at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Vellinga is a professor of climate change at Wageningen University and at the VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
