“Knowledge and action for Planet Earth” – this is the motto of INTERGEO 2018, the world’s largest trade fair in the field of geodesy, spatial data and land management.

Spatial reference is its uniting element. As a result, abstract values become maps, digital data become comprehensible facts and complex information provides us with access to the world.

Be it broad access, swift processing or comprehensive interconnectedness – digital technology will make it easier for us to achieve all of this. At the same time, questions about the future of geodesy arise. How will the work routines and tasks of geodesy specialists change? How will we find our experts? How can we help them develop their expertise?

INTERGEO addresses these and other questions and discusses them in the context of Geospatial 4.0, Smart City, Smart Villages, digital construction, cloud computing and artificial intelligence.

I am pleased to be the patron of INTERGEO and am happy to see it prosper. I hope INTERGEO 2018 will be an inspiring experience and offer all participants new insights, a lively exchange and productive discussions.

Horst Seehofer,
Federal Minister of the Interior, Building and Community

Dear Sir/Madam and fellow members of the industry!

I would like to extend a warm invitation to come to INTERGEO in Frankfurt am Main. It is your opportunity to attend the geo-event of the year and be part of the geo community.

You can find out about the key geo issues of digitalisation and the digital revolution. Without digitalisation there can be no smart cities and villages, no BIM and no eGovernment. Our industry is currently undergoing rapid change, as geoinformation is a vital element of the digital revolution. It helps make our environment available digitally in three dimensions and opens up a wealth of applications when combined with specialist data. This in turn gives rise to a whole range of new and innovative business models. In addition, the importance of artificial intelligence processes, augmented reality and virtual reality is also on the rise. These will have a huge impact on our work processes, transforming our jobs forever. INTERGEO will address these issues in its trade fair and conference.

Come along to the presentations and visit our exhibitors. Get talking to fellow specialists. Use the opportunity to meet experts face-to-face at INTERGEO and grow your network. Visit us in Frankfurt in October.

We look forward to seeing you!

Professor Hansjörg Kutterer,
President of the DVW
