August 22–24, 2017   |   The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa   |   Denver, Colorado

The ENVI Analytics Symposium will feature analytical thought leaders and practitioners from around the world

The theme of the 2017 ENVI Analytics Symposium (EAS) is “Analytical Solutions in a Data-Rich World.” With the staggering volume of commercial and open-source data that is becoming available, organizations will need to quickly transition to new business and service models to be successful. Agility, technology, and innovation will separate the winners from the losers. Register to attend the 2017 EAS to keep your finger on the pulse of this fast-growing and dynamic market of commercial geospatial Big Data analytics.

Attendee Experience

Attendees will glean knowledge and ideas from other successful real-world analytical applications, all while sitting in the beautiful surroundings of the Brown Palace Hotel & Spa.

Topics of the 2017 EAS include:

  • The Future of Earth Observation
  • The LiDAR Revolution
  • Adding the Temporal Dimension to Geospatial Analytics
  • Geospatial Modeling – Creating the “Digital Twin*”
  • Industry Solutions of Geospatial Analytics (…Precision Ag, Utilities, Maritime, Defense and Security)
  • Buying and Selling Geospatial Analytics

*A digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product or service. This pairing of the virtual and physical worlds allows analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they even occur, prevent downtime, develop new opportunities and even plan for the future by using simulations.

EAS attendees will:

  • Hear details of successful real-world analytical applications
  • Listen to analytical thought leaders discuss the future of the industry
  • Learn tips, tricks, and best practices for using analytics and ENVI
  • Test different products, improve technical skills, and gain new analysis techniques
  • Network with fellow image analysts and thought leaders
  • Interact and get questions answered from the people who make, support, and sell ENVI

Attendance for the EAS is being limited to 200 people in order to provide high-quality interaction and participation.
The event will sell out so REGISTER TODAY!

Sharing data on Amazon Web Services (AWS) makes it accessible to a large and growing community of users who use the AWS cloud for research, new product development, and education. When data is shared in the cloud, anyone can analyze it without having to download it or store it themselves, which lowers the cost of new product development, reduces the time to scientific discovery, and accelerates innovation.
