The keynote speech of Klaus Vitt, State Secretary at the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, addresses important digitalisation issues. Digitalisation is important, but so is ensuring appropriate data security and data protection in both business and private applications. This is a key prerequisite for the transformation of our society.


Keynote Transformation through Digitalisation

Dr. Jürgen Dold

Dr. Jürgen Dold, President of Hexagon Geosystems

In his keynote speech entitled “Transformation through Digitalisation” the President of Hexagon Geosystems Dr. Jürgen Dold will talk about the impact of digitalisation on the geospatial sector, its business models and its incorporation into macroeconomic relationships, and also about the form this might take in the future.

Keynote BIM

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus König

Professor Markus König,
Ruhr University

BIM is a key topic at this year’s conference. A close look at the issues involved will be offered from the perspective of both surveyors in “Geodesy meets BIM” and construction engineers in “BIM links planning and building”. The programme will also include contributions from the development perspective of exhibitors.

Professor Markus König from Ruhr University Bochum has been confirmed as the keynote speaker on BIM.

Building information modelling – BIM for short – deals with topical issues such as model-based planning, computer-aided design, data exchange formats in construction applications, cooperation and project platforms.


Keynote Smart cities

Professor Manfred Hauswirth,

Professor Manfred Hauswirth,
Executive Director of Fraunhofer FOKUS

Cities are the vibrant hubs at the heart of our society. Smart cities will return as a key topic at this year’s INTERGEO conference in the wake of the enthusiastic response in Hamburg last year. The main focus will be on energy and mobility.

Ultra-precise environmental information and its visual representation are important developments with regard to mobility in particular. The key issues regarding urban energy supplies are how to shape their flow patterns, optimise use and minimise consumption.

The keynote speaker on smart cities will be Professor Manfred Hauswirth, Executive Director of Fraunhofer FOKUS in Berlin

Keynote Escaping the Flatlands

Mladen Stojic, President Hexagon Geospatial

Mladen Stojic, President
Hexagon Geospatial

We collect data. We flatten it into layers. We build maps to deliver a message. We stack data layer on top of data layer, attempting to create a static picture that replicates reality. This is like showing people a sheet of music and telling them they have just experienced a symphony.

We need change. We need to escape the flatlands of static, flat maps.

With the increase in data sources – some of them even recording in real time – we can escape the confines that traditional geospatial technology has imposed upon us. We can begin building a new and meaningful interactive experience that communicates information.

Join Hexagon Geospatial President Mladen Stojic as he showcases novel, real-world examples of how we experience geospatial information. This keynote will introduce easier ways to ingest the influx of data, automated approaches to analysis that extract the signal from the noise, and intuitive ways to communicate insights to decision makers and field teams to shape smarter change.
