The CDRC and the Association for Geographic Information (AGI) are pleased to announce the first of a five-part series of events entitled Geo+Data London. Our events aim to provide an environment for those working with geographic data to meet, share, and learn from experiences and best practices as demonstrated by industry and current academic research.

For our first event, we have brought together speakers from Telefónica UK and University College London (UCL) to speak on WiFi technology and smart cities.

Schedule of events:

We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
