Where is the disruption…. Where is the disruption – this is not a question.‘Where’ is actually the disruption. The concept and science of where has evolved from merely understanding where we are, to unlimited analytical capabilities to understand not just where we are, but how all things interact, interrelate and affect each other based on their location. We will discuss a few disruptive spatial technologies that are changing the way we think, plan, act and react, and how we are leveraging these new spatial capabilities to leap frog traditional approaches with new systems and institutions. This presentation will detail particularly exciting opportunities for the developing world in land administration.
