Saint Louis University and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency are proud to announce Geo-Resolution 2020 will be held on March 25, 2020 at SLU’s Busch Student Center. The conference is free and open to the public.
Date: March 25, 2020
The Geo-Resolution geospatial conference will bring together government, academic and industry leaders growing the geospatial ecosystem in the greater St. Louis region. Geo-Resolution represents the latest efforts from SLU and the broader St. Louis community to build geospatial capacity and to strengthen old and new collaborations across the nation.
The event is open to the public, though registration is required.
Over 650 regional leaders attended this inaugural conference, which opened with a moderated discussion between Vice Admiral Robert Sharp and SLU President Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D.
St. Louis is poised to become a national hub for geospatial science and technology. On the morning of Geo-Resolution 2019, NGA revealed new design concepts of the Next NGA West (N2W) campus, which is planned to be operational in 2025.
For its part, SLU has been at the center of the nation’s geospatial enterprise since the Corps of Discovery returned to St. Louis with maps of the Louisiana Territory in 1806. Building on this rich history, in January 2019, SLU and NGA signed an agreement establishing a special relationship that positioned the University and NGA as collaborators on geospatial research, training and innovation initiatives.
