GEO Huntsville Summit 2017! is a one day summit designed to give participants the latest information on both new and ongoing Geospatial industry, government and educational initiatives. Get exclusive insights from geospatial thought leaders and join your peers in the industry to understand how to successfully navigate our ever-changing sector.
The focus will be on how geospatial technology contributions are making
Communities Safe, Secure and Sustainable
Key Themes include:
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 - ABlueprint for Safety
Open Data for Geospatial Use and Advances in Open Source Geospatial Tools
Oakridge National Lab's (ORNL) will provide 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 will hold a special session on GEOHuntsville's TechVet Forum. Learn how the geospatial community is engaging in this revolutionary method of getting new innovations into the hands of those who need it most. Hear a panel discussion with Investors, Innovators, and Funding agencies to promote dialog to advance funding opportunities. A Q/A session will follow.
Seating is limited in this venue, so register early!

Join us for the 2nd Annual GEOHackHsv Event that will kick-off GEOHuntsville Summit 2017!
Members of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and GEOHuntsville are hosting 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 are sponsoring the opportunity for anyone to come make a real difference. Once the flooding does take place, it is imperative that all departments, from public safety, transportation & FEMA, have enough resources on hand and the right information to act in real-time.

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).
Create a collaborative effort among businessess, academia and government
Support workforce growth and economic development
Bring awareness to professional expertise that exists in North Alabama
Identify job opportunities
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.

Group is focused on defining policy for unmanned aerial systems as it integrates with the National Airspace System.
We appreciate the support of NGA...Our initiative seeks to demonstrate how we can implement location-based technologies and effectively distribute information to first responders.
Mayor Tommy Battle
I believe that like NGA, the GEO Huntsville community is uniquely positioned to leverage your geospatial capabilities and your energy technologies to enable outstanding consequences that sustain our nation's future energy security needs.
Robert Cardillo, Director NGA
What we want to do is leverage that synergy (of geospatial work already being performed here) so we can create jobs for the future.
Mayor Tommy Battle
When you talk about GEO Huntsville, to me it's a wonderful stress test for my system.
