The GIS for the United Nations and the International Community Conference took place April 3 – 5, 2012, at the World Meteorological Organization headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Esri and United Nations Institute for Training and Research's (UNITAR) Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT) organized the conference to demonstrate and discuss the role of GIS in global challenges. Attendees will consider how GIS can provide the analytic knowledge required to make better decisions on issues that are critical for the planet.
The aim of the conference was to bring together experts from the United Nations and other international and nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, and the private sector. During breakout sessions, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, attendees learned how to best apply geographic information science to devise better responses to regional and global challenges.
