The first #geomobMUC of 2020 will take place 18:30 on Thursday, March 26th! The event will be held at Mindspace Viktualienmarkt at Viktualienmarkt 8, 80331 Munich (OpenStreetMap, Google Map).

Please RSVP on the meetup page so we have an estimate of numbers.

Our Speakers:

  • Ed Freyfogle of geocoding service OpenCage

  • JP Mens will tell us about open-source, privacy-focused, self-hosted, location tracking service OwnTracks

  • Multi-risk analysis and information system components for the Andes Region. Michael Langbein from DLR will give an overview of the work being done by the RIESGOS(Multi-risk analysis and information system components for the Andes region) project.Natural hazards often consist of multiple, cascading processes (an earthquake causes a tsunami which damages power lines), whereas scientific models usually try to model just one of these processes at a time. The RIESGOS team in collaboration with DLR, have exposed several scientific models as WPS and combined them in a simple web-frontend to allow for a more holistic approach to multi step risk management.

  • Cloud-based service to monitor ground surface movements using Sentinel-1 SAR image Project engineer Moritz Seidel from Geosystems GmbH will talk us through their cloud-based Geo information service designed for the precise monitoring of ground surface deformation, infrastructure stability and areas subject to subsidence or landslides by using the PSI method.

  • Monitoring crisis areas in the world using cloud-based satellite imagery Pascal Schichor - European Space Imaging

  • Shruti Kuber, HERE Technologies, will talk about AI-powered Live Sense that detects hazard in real-time and aware the drivers of their environment.

After the talks there will be a discussion and networking session and we are looking forward to get everyone connected with each other!

Who should attend?

Geomob is a community of academics, developers, industry professionals and enthusiasts who are passionate about location data driven products and businesses in Munich and beyond.

We seek to create a group of diverse participants and speakers. The goal for all of us is to better understand how location data and the technology around it affects all aspects of development.

Geomob is for everyone interested in geospatial technology - be it mobility, location intelligence, computer vision, indoor mapping, navigation, drone, GIS or any other location data driven industry.

We aim to meet every two or three months, providing a relaxed forum to discuss geoinnovation, whether its for fun or profit.

Please come along to learn more about location technology and discover what we can do to shape the future of the industry together.
