San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2013
On July 23, Dr. Kevin Montgomery, CEO of Intelesense Technologies, will join Patrick Hogan, Project Director for NASA WorldWind, in a keynote speech entitled "NASA World Wind Infrastructure for Spatial Data". During this presentation, Dr. Montgomery will provide an overview of the world’s first geospatial platform for geospatial computing and collaboration, Collaborate.org, while Mr. Hogan will describe the newest features that are available with WorldWind at COM.Geo 2013.
Hosted by the Computing for Geospatial Research Institute (COM.Geo Institute), the COM.Geo Conference is the leading geospatial computing conference in the world. It provides a forum for researchers, decision-makers, developers and application users to present and discuss innovations, trends, and experiences related to geospatial research and development. Originating in 2010, this event attracts individuals and companies from both the private and public sector including various government agencies, hardware and software companies, universities and research organizations from around the world. While this event traditionally has been held in Washington, DC, this year will be the first year that the event will be held in the San Francisco Bay Area.
When speaking about the event, Dr. Montgomery mentioned, "With COM.Geo in the heart of Silicon Valley, this year’s conference promises to be the best ever as far as access to the entire spectrum of technological innovation. We are honored to once again share the stage with Patrick and the WorldWind team to jointly promote the benefits of open source, open data solutions for global social impact."
Dr. Lindi Liao, COM.Geo Conference General Chair, President & Chief Scientist at COM.Geo Institute, was impressed by Collaborate.org and said, "WorldWind is Google Earth, but beyond Google Earth! Collaborate.org, built around WorldWind, is the world’s most advanced social collaboration platform. It brings a brand new way for people not only to view, collect, and, share data with each other, but also to work together and share their expertise, thoughts, visions, and everything. We are excited and looking forward to Dr. Montgomery’s speeches at COM.Geo 2013."
Later that day, Dr. Montgomery will be part of a panel discussion entitled "Geospatial Computing: An Eye towards the Future." On July 24, Dr. Montgomery will host a workshop that will provide a closer look at Collaborate.org called "Worldwide Geospatial Data Collaboration." Individuals who are not able to attend any of these sessions are always welcome to visit the Collaborate.org booth during the event.
Developed by engineers from Stanford University, NASA and other groups in the Silicon Valley with partners around the world, Collaborate.org is the most advanced global social collaboration platform on the planet. It is an easy-to-use online community comprised of people and organizations working together, sharing their experiences and expertise empowered with an integrated suite of collaboration tools and all of the world’s geospatial data at your fingertips.
