Saint Louis University and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency are proud to announce Geo-Resolution 2020 will be held on March 25, 2020 at SLU's Busch Student Center. The conference is free and open to the public.
Date: March 25, 2020
The Geo-Resolution geospatial conference will bring together government, academic and industry leaders growing the geospatial ecosystem in the greater St. Louis region. Geo-Resolution represents the latest efforts from SLU and the broader St. Louis community to build geospatial capacity and to strengthen old and new collaborations across the nation.
More information will be posted here when it is available.
High school, college and university students are invited to participate in a poster session at Geo-Resolution 2020. Selected posters should highlight current research in which geospatial techniques play a critical role, including remote sensing, conservation, spatial statistics, public health, urban studies, transportation and mobility, emergency response, infrastructure and environmental studies.
Applications are due by December 1, 2019. A limited number of posters will be selected for presentation at the conference at Saint Louis University.
Posters will be reviewed and judged by local geospatial analysts and researchers, with prizes awarded to the best three posters:
- $750 for First Place
- $500 for Second Place
- $250 for Third Place
There will also be a separate $250 award for the first place high school poster.
Poster winners will be announced prior to the end of the conference. Posters will be on display during the conference from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 253 of the Busch Student Center.
Over 650 regional leaders attended this inaugural conference, which opened with a moderated discussion between Vice Admiral Robert Sharp and SLU President Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D.
St. Louis is poised to become a national hub for geospatial science and technology. On the morning of Geo-Resolution 2019, NGA revealed new design concepts of the Next NGA West (N2W) campus, which is planned to be operational in 2025.
For its part, SLU has been at the center of the nation’s geospatial enterprise since the Corps of Discovery returned to St. Louis with maps of the Louisiana Territory in 1806. Building on this rich history, in January 2019, SLU and NGA signed an agreement establishing a special relationship that positioned the University and NGA as collaborators on geospatial research, training and innovation initiatives.
