Saint Louis University and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency are proud to announce Geo-Resolution 2020. The conference is free and open to the public.
The Geo-Resolution 2020 Conference leadership team has been closely following global, national, and local developments related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of conference participants, invited speakers, and vendors is our highest priority.
Following the guidance of public health officials, the President of Saint Louis University, in consultation with the Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, has decided to postpone the Geo-Resolution 2020 Conference (scheduled for March 25th), out of appropriate caution and in line with social-distancing recommendations.
We also recognize the important role the many institutions and individual participants involved in Geo-Resolution, including SLU and the NGA, are playing in response to the pandemic. Addressing this public health emergency rightfully deserves their full attention at this time.
The conference team is focused on growing geospatial talent and investment in St. Louis-and putting St. Louis on the map as the global center of excellence for geospatial technology. This goal does not change in the slightest.
The conference team will continue their work in the interim, and we look forward to reconvening for Geo-Resolution at a later date. We will communicate details when more information is available.
Meanwhile, we encourage everyone to listen to and follow recommendations from public health officials. We appreciate your continued support of Geo-Resolution.
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.
