SIME recently hosted the 2nd Google-SIME Geo Event at the Yas Viceroy Hotel, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
The event, which took place on the 16th and 17th of January, 2013, saw professionals from the UAE capital gather to discuss the current trends in their local geospatial market.
Technical professionals from both Google and SIME conducted intensive workshops covering the Google Geo product range, as well as the various options for customization and development that SIME can offer on top of the Google platform. An open platform discussion was also encouraged, whereby variances and requirements specific to the capital could be addressed in an effort to make geospatial data more accessible to private organizations and governmental bodies alike.
