The selected theme of GSDI 10 is "Small Island Perspectives on Global Challenges: The Role of Spatial Data in Supporting a Sustainable Future." The pressing needs of small island nations are a particular emphasis of the conference and include such concerns as:

  • sustainable development,
  • disaster prevention, warning, management, response, and recovery,
  • alleviation of poverty and crime,
  • economic development,
  • lessening the digital divide including access to information technologies,
  • ensuring food security,
  • support of transportation, health and communication systems, and
  • facilitating land ownership

GIS, spatial data infrastructure concepts, and affiliated tools and technologies are being utilized worldwide to help address all of these issues.

We look forward to enjoying your company and benefiting from your insights. Please come!
