THANKS TO ALL FOR MAKING GEOHUNTSVILLE SUMMIT 2017! SUCH A SUCCESS !!

GEOHuntsville Summit 2017!

Monday, February 27, 2017 
Educator Training Facility (ETF) Auditorium at the
U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Huntsville, Alabama

GEO Huntsville Summit 2017!  is a one day summit gave  participants the latest information on both new and ongoing Geospatial industry, government and educational initiatives. 

Our focus was on how geospatial technology contributions are making
Communities Safe, Secure and Sustainable


Key Themes included:

  • How Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and their products are integrating into the Geospatial sector
  • GEOHuntsville's newly formed UAS Working Group
  • GEOHuntsville's 2017 Demonstration Roadmap - A Blueprint for Safety  
  • Open Data for Geospatial Use and Advances in Open Source Geospatial Tools

Oakridge National Lab's (ORNL) provided a guided, hands-on training session for the Incident Management Preparedness and Coordination Toolkit (IMPACT). IMPACT is a free all-hazards planning tool for first responders. IMPACT combines simulation, visualization, and mapping into an integrated user interface and is in use by over 400 federal, state, and local government agencies and their partners.

We also held special session on GEOHuntsville's
TechVet ForumAnd participants learned how the geospatial community is engaging in this revolutionary method of getting new innovations into the hands of those who need it most. An informative panel discussion with Investors, Innovators, and Funding agencies helped to promote dialog to advance funding opportunities. And a Q/A session followed.

We had a packed house -- With Standing room only!! Thanks to ALL who participated!

Full AGENDA

I hope everyone enjoyed the GEOHuntsville Summit 2017!

Innovate Huntsville activities will continue throughout the week!

Expedition Hack Rocket City is now in the Record Books
February 25-26th, 2017  
We had an amazing turnout with 55 participating hackers! And the largest number of female hackers of any Expedition Hack Event!!

The 2nd Annual GEOHackHsv Event kicked-off GEOHuntsville Summit 2017! and both events were tremendous!
THANK YOU HUNTSVILLE!!

Members of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and GEOHuntsville hosted this year's Hack Event.

We’ve seen first-hand the deadly results of floods. The challenge is knowing where and when exactly the floods will take place and staying in front of the impending natural disaster. With no controlling mother nature, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and GEOHuntsville sponsored the opportunity and over 55 participants came and made a real difference! Many applications were developed to help once the flooding does take place, to help assist all departments, from public safety, transportation & FEMA, have enough resources on hand and the right information to act in real-time.

Why Huntsville?                  

Huntsville has always been a forward leaning city, as such Mayor Tommy Battle recognizing the vast geospatial capabilities and resources has formed Geo Huntsville to better promote these capabilities. Geo Huntsville is one of three economic development and jobs initiatives sponsored by Mayor Battle (Energy and Cyber are the others).

Objectives: 

  1. Create a collaborative effort among businessess, academia and government
  2. Support workforce growth and economic development
  3. Bring awareness to professional expertise that exists in North Alabama
  4. Identify job opportunities
  5. Establish the region as a major corridor for geospatial excellence

Huntsville's modern existence was founded on space and it continues to be a forerunner in the ever evolving space industry.

  • Huntsville is focused on the commercialization of the earth observation satellite industry opportunties in new space-borne platforms

Huntsville has core capabilities in geospatial information systems (GIS) and software development as well as 3D visualization such as for building information modeling (BIM) technology

  • Several companies in the region have extensive experience in this technology

Geospatial Intelligence: As a major center for defense and intelligence, Huntsville has an opportunity to utilize its existing capabilities in this arena

  • Both the base of defense contractors and work performed on the Redstone Arsenal by the Missile and Space Intelligence Agency (MSIC) and AMRDEC present a defined workforce on which to build

Where are we today?  GeoHuntsville was established as a 501c6 non-profit organization in 2012 and today is made up of over 300 volunteers from the geospatial sector. The backbone of the organization is our working groups. Working groups provide a collaborative forum between users and technologists to develop ideas, pilot projects, proposals and solutions. Currently we are organized into 5 Working Groups: Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT), Responder, Public Agency/Local Government, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), and Education.
