The Single Mapping Event that Crosses Boundaries

The London Mapping Festival (LMF) is pleased to announce a new, free of charge event dedicated to the diverse range of mapping-related technologies and services available in the marketplace.

Scheduled for Thursday 1 December 2011 at the Emirates Stadium in London, Mapping Showcase 2011 will comprise a commercial exhibition, informative presentations, a range of interactive workshops and lots of fun activities throughout the day.

The event is designed to bring together attendees across the public and private sector interested in the latest mapping innovations, products, technology and services. It will especially appeal to those within property, utilities, transport, government, environmental, insurance and technology markets.

Free keynote talks and workshops will cover an array of mapping-based themes within the GIS, cartography, GPS, surveying and computing industries.

Fiona Cocks, LMF’s Lead Coordinator, comments “LMF aims to promote awareness and understanding of how maps and digital geographic data are created and used within the workplace. Mapping Showcase 2011 will provide the perfect platform to achieve this and thanks to an enthusiastic LMF supporter network Mapping Showcase will be cross-promoted to parts of the community we never even knew existed!”
