Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the second Intercontinental Geoinformation Days (IGD) for professionals in the geoinformation science domain. We are excited to host a series of interactive presentations between 5 and 6 May 2021.  

The conference will provide extensive didactic and collaborative opportunities for geomatics specialists as well as other scientists and professionals who study in the geospatial domain. 

The 2-days-long conference offers online technical sessions and workshops. The technical programme will consist of dozens of presentations within the fields of surveying, remote sensing, photogrammetry, land administration, cartography, GIS and geodesy, including best practice and new research.

As the novel coronavirus outbreak shutters businesses and disrupts everyday life for billions around the globe, massive annual conferences and small society meetings alike have moved online. The new format poses numerous technical and organizational challenges, but it also offers opportunities—for reaching wider audiences, reducing the carbon footprint of meeting travel, and improving diversity and equity.

This format was very successful at the first IGD conference in November, 2020. More than 65 papers from 12 countries were presented last year. It was not only a question of numbers that made the conference so successful, but also the general enthusiasm that was constantly presented during the two days as well as the engagement the presenters showed. 

The objective of Intercontinental Geoinformation Days (IGD) is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government, to investigate, discuss, examine and advance the principles, the state of the art, and the solutions addressing critical challenges in geoinformation science. 

IGD 2021 is organized by Mersin University Geomatics Engineering Department. Technical sessions will be broadcasted by the organizing committee thanks to the sponsors’ support. Registered attendees for IGD 2021 will be invited to join the online meeting Joining an online meeting will let you watch talks and interact with speakers. All sessions will also be broadcasted for the general public (and anyone who did not pre-register for IGD 2021) to watch. Each session will have its own broadcasting link.

We will be happy to welcome scientists at the second Intercontinental Geoinformation Days which we will organize between May 5-6, 2021.
