Geo for Good User Summit 2012


This week, Will Cadell. PlaceSpeak‘s Chief ‘GIS’ Officer (or ‘CGeO’) is travelling to Google Headquarters, in Mountain View, California to participate in the Geo for Good User Summit.

Geo for Good is a summit hosted by Google that is focussed on the use of Google’s geo technology for “good causes.” This hands-on event is limited to just 75 participants. While he is there, Will will see demonstrations of the latest and greatest from Google.  He will also have the opportunity to discuss how different organizations (including PlaceSpeak!) are using these technologies “for real.” Attending organizations include: the Smithsonian and the Jane Goodall Institute amongst many others.
