Save the date: February 4, 2016 at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown
What does your house, local store, water system, transit bus and hospital all have in common? They are becoming members of an expanding Internet of Things (IoT): a sensor web of devices connected to one another via the internet to provide real-time data about infrastructure, weather, traffic, customers and services. Join us on February 4th, 2016 for URISA BC's one day seminar entitled Space-Time! Geo-enabling the Internet of Things as we explore how GIS is playing an important role in geo-enabling the synthesis, display and analysis of the IoT's data streams making them useful across a wide range of application areas that include public works, transportation, emergency management, tourism and sustainability.
