Top Ten Reasons to Attend the MAPPS Winter Meeting - #4, Big Data

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Friday, December 21, 2012
Is "Big Data" becoming a problem for your firm? Big Data is a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using existing database management tools. The challenges include capture, curation, storage, search, sharing, analysis, and visualization.

To address "Big Data" in the geospatial world, we've assembled leaders in the field -- Esri, Microsoft, Google and Amazon.

At the MAPPS Winter Conference, January 27 - 31, 2013 at the Trump International Hotel in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, experts from these firms will lead a discussion of the diversity, volume, velocity, and analytics of geospatial data and the revolutionary changes that are occurring. Learn what’s happening, what to expect in the future, and how it will impact the geospatial professional and market.

Bid Data is the wrap-up session of the conference. Register today. Join us for an exciting discussion. Check out full conference information. When making travel plans, make sure your depart from Miami provides ample time for this "must see" session.

Registration rates increase December 29.

To ensure you receive the special MAPPS conference rate be sure to make your reservations at the Trump International Resort before January 4. The hotel is easily accessible from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Miami International Airport (MIA).
