Konverentsist

Balti Geoinfotehnoloogia Konverents (BGITC) on ainulaadne koostööalgatud Eesti, Läti ja Leedu vahel eesmärgiga korraldada piirkondlik geoinformaatika teemaline üritus, mis edendaks Balti riikide vahelist koostööd. Peale selle, et konverents annab võimaluse jagada kogemusi ja teadmisi ning võimaldab uurida lähemalt turu arenguvõimalusi, on kõige olulisemaks eesmärgiks luua ühine arusaam ja visioon geoinformaatika kui valdkonna arenguks Balti regioonis.

 

Konverentsile on oodata rohkem kui 500 osalejat üle Euroopa. See on suurim geoinformaatika üritus regioonis, mis meelitab kohale GIS arendajad, kasutajad, otsustajad ja erinevad ettevõtted.

 

Konverentsi organiseerivad Eesti Geoinformaatika SeltsLäti GIS Selts ja Leedu Kartograafia Selts koostöös erinevatega partneritega. Konverents toimub koos üritusega SotM Baltics 2020. Ühtlasti on tegemist Eesti Geoinformaatika Seltsi (2019) aastakonverentsiga.

Miks osaleda?

Balti Geoinfotehnoloogia Konverents on tasuta kõigile, kes on huvitatud geoinformaatikast: üliõpilased, teadurid, ettevõtjad, riigiasutuste ja kohalike omavalitsuste esindajad. Osaleda saavad kõik, kes on registreerunud. 

 

Päeva jooksul on võimalik:

  •      ● kuulata nii kohalikke kui ka rahvusvahelisi esinejaid mitmel paralleelsessioonil
  •      ● tutvuda ja jagada teadmisi-kogemusi GIS spetsialistide ja entusiastidega

 

Kuigi konverentsil osalemine on tasuta, on osalejate arv piiratud. Seega soovitame registereeruda nii kiiresti kui võimalik, et tagada endale koht konverentsil!

 

 

REGISTREERU KONVERENTSILE

Praktiline info

Toimumiskoht

 

Konverents toimub Läti Ülikooli Akadeemilise Keskuse Teadusmajas (kaarti), mis avati eelmisel aastal. See asub Riia vanalinnast 5 minuti sõidu või 20 minuti jalutuskäigu kaugusel aadressil Jelgavas 3 (vaata kaarti).

 

Kui plaanid tulla autoga, siis otsi lähim avalik parkla (vaata kaarti), sest toimumiskohas puuduvad parkimisvõimalused.

 

Kui soovid konverentsile tulla võimalikult kiiresti ja mugavalt, siis kõige parem on tulla taksoga. Me soovitame kasutada Bolti ja tellida endale takso nende äpi kaudu. Kui soovid võtta takso tänavalt, siis pööra tähelepanu takso ustele märgitud tariifidele (sisseistumise-, kilomeetri- ja ootetasu). Tariifid ei ole reguleeritud, seega maksimaalseid limiite ei ole!

Enamik ühistransporte viivad üle silla, kuid peatusest toimumiskohta kõndimiseks kulub umbes 10 minutit. Kui soovid leida kõige kiiremat marsruuti ühistranspordiga punktist A punkti B, siis soovitame kasutada Trafi äppi.

 

Kus ööbida?

 

Balti Geoinfotehnoloogia Konverentsi ametlik hotell on Wellton Riverside SPA Hotel, kus enamus Riia külastajaid ööbivad ning kus ühtlasi toimub ka ametlik järelpidu. Hotell asub Riia vanalinnas olulisimate vaatamisväärsuste läheduses ja hotellist on kaunis vaade Daugava jõele. Teine valik, mida pakume, on Wellton Riga hotell, mis asub toimumiskohast veidi kaugemal.

 

Kõik osalejad saavad väga hea hotelli sooduspakkumise, mis edastatakse osalejatele koos sooduskoodiga e-mailile pärast konverentsile registreerumist. Kuid soovi korral võib uurida ka teisi hotelle ja Airbnb võimalusi.

SoTM Baltic 2020

Kaks ühes: BGITC 2020 + SotM Baltic 2020

 

Balti Geoinfotehnoloogia Konverentsiga on liitunud üritus State of the Map Baltics 2020, seega on konverentsil eraldi sessioon OpenStreetMap-i (OSM) teemadel. OSM on koostööl põhinev projekt, mille raames luuakse tasuta ülemaailmne kaart, mida igaüks saab muuta. OSM-i eesmärgiks on pakkuda ruumiandmeid avaandmetena kõigile igaks otstarbeks. Näiteid, kus on kasutatud OSM-i andmeid, on mitmeid: mobiilirakendused maps.me ja OsmAnd, PokemonGO ja Minecraft Earth. Lisaks kasutavad OSM-i andmeid veel Tesla, Wikipedia, Facebook ja Geocaching.

 

Liitu OpenStreetMap kogukonnaga üritusel SotM Baltics 2020, et kohtuda teiste entusiastidega, kellele on kaardistamine südamelähedane, ning saa teada, kuidas näiteks OSM-i andmeid kasutada oma veebilehel või rakenduses, kuidas uuendada informatsiooni oma kaupulse või mu muu äri kohta või kuidas lihtsalt kaardistada mõnda poodi või pubi.

Ametlik järelpidu

Ära maga maha suurepärast võimalust saada uusi tutvusi ja õppida kõiki veidi paremini ametlik järelpeol. See toimub restoranis Klīversala (Mūkusalas iela 3, Rīga) Valguselossis (Läti Rahvusraamatukogu), vaata kaarti. Sissepääs on konverentsipassiga tasuta (kui oled peole registreerunud). Kohapeal pakutakse tervitusjooke ja veidi snäkke, kuid hiljem on võimalik baarist soetada endale ise meelepärane jook. Uksed avatakse kell 18:00.

 

Kui oled konverentsile registreerunud, kuid ei märkinud, et soovid osaleda järelpeol, siis palun kirjuta e-kiri info@latgis.eu.

Pioneering vector tiles in Latvia

Vector tiles is an emerging method for delivering base maps, that can be used on a web or mobile platforms on such devices as PCs, tablets, smart phones. Unlike raster maps, less centralised server processing power is required, since rasterization is performed directly in the client. This has become possible because of the growth in performance of clients’ devices. Since 2017, Jana seta Map Publishers had actively been seeking the best solution to create detailed vector tile maps, suitable for web and mobile apps.

Getting more out of the soil map: Deriving advanced numerical parameters from the Soil Map of Estonia

The Soil Map of Estonia is a vector dataset that maps more than 750 000 soil units throughout Estonia at a scale of 1:10 000. It describes the soil type, quality, texture, and layer information with a series of complex text codes. However, these codes are not useful for quantitative large scale analyses. We present a standardised automated method to translate and standardise these text codes into numerical variables for depths, texture (clay, silt, sand components) and more.

Geolatvija.lv today and its development strategy

Data is the basis for the digital transformation of every institution, enterprise and economy. By digitizing processes and services institutions and companies are creating valuable data not only for themselves but also for others. Sharing data is a prerequisite for the successful digital development of society. The challenge is - how to make data sharing effective? The Latvian geo-portal Geolatvija.lv is the state's answer to this challenge in the field of geospatial information. What is Geolatvija.lv today and what is its development strategy on the way to a national marketplace of geospatial information?
Under Uģis Bisenieks lead the Latvian Population Register information system and implementation projects of public e-government sharing platforms were developed. Currently he leads Latvia's digital transformation strategy and implementation of a unified public administration ICT architecture.

Cartography using open source tools - topo.openmap.lt

Important aspects of cartography, like generalisation, are usually mostly overlooked in today's on-line maps. Some of these problems are being solved using open source tools while creating a vector tile based on-line map topo.openmap.lt. Cartography helps to improve not only the visual, but also the technical result of vector tiles and therefore the maps themselves. Although some solutions are already implemented, a lot of other issues are missing even ideas for high level algorithm to be used to solve them.

"Destination Lithuanian America": efficient mapping of 600+ Lithuanian-American heritage sites

"Destination Lithuanian America" interactive online map ( http://map.truelithuania.com ) covers 600+ Lithuanian churches, monuments, famous burials, club buildings and other heritage in the Americas. Initially, this project may have seemed nearly impossible to pull off: it faced major budget and time constraints, while all the locations-to-be-mapped were far from Lithuania and most of them had no known coordinates or addresses. Nevertheless, the leader of the project Augustinas Žemaitis devised ways not only to complete the project on time and within budget, but also to nearly triple its scope. He explains how was it possible to efficiently collect such distant-yet-important data and map it.
Augustinas Žemaitis is a researcher and mapper of Lithuanian heritage abroad. He is the founder and author of 17 websites, among them http://global.truelithuania.com (encyclopedia of Lithuanian heritage abroad) and http://map.truelithuania.com (map of Lithuanian heritage in the Americas).

Road traffic collision scene reconstruction: comparing traditional police methods with new ones

Road traffic collisions happen every day in densely built urban areas. One of the main tasks for traffic police is to gather all the needed evidence from collision scene and ensure that thorough investigation is being conducted afterward. The quality of the investigation is directly dependent of how realistically the collision scene is being reconstructed and how much time is being spent on data and evidence gathering on the scene. This presentation is focusing to compare traditional police data and evidence gathering practices with the new ones like drone RGB and IR camera as well as terrestrial scanner during road traffic collisions.
Andres Mumma is a former tactical level incident commander in fire/rescue services working there for the past 24 years and he left fire/rescue industry in autumn 2018 because he belives that GIS “revolution” inside public safety industry can be achived mainly through research and education.

Modern GIS systems for topographical data management needs in Latvia

We believe that production and maintenance of topographic data is convenient, fast and with less human error. Currently, a lot of time and human resources are spent checking the logic of topographic plans and their compliance with the specification. Therefore, we have created a Topographic Information Verification and Management Platform that provides the user for ease of use, adaptability, and increased productivity in topographic information verification and maintenance. The Topoweb.lv platform provides the verification of topographic and related data, the maintenance of data in the database and its release to users. We will present the current solutions and future development plans.
Maris Krievs has been a Member of the Board for TopoDati since 2014. Under Maris’s guidance, the development of a topographic data maintenance system was started. It did not take long when a service for automated verification of topographic data specification was offered in 2016. In 2017, automated release of data on territories of interest was introduced. In 2019, a topographic data logic verification system was introduced. In addition, a system has been developed for checking / comparing the survey data on public utilities against historical data in the database.

GIS and Machine Learning in logistics

It is estimated that heavy-duty vehicles (trucks) represent 30% of all road transportation, and 5% of all EU CO2 emissions. Therefore visibility, analysing, optimisations and reductions in commercial transportation footprint are not only useful to improve travel times and costs for businesses, but it also contributes to significant reduction of global greenhouse gases. This sector sees this as important target for the green future. My talk is technology-oriented view to the challenges of the first steps towards it: how small company started in Estonia now does collection and consolidation of billions of real-time locations of trucks, combines it with real-time traffic and GIS datasets and builds machine learning models to reveal hidden patterns and reduction opportunities.

Closing the Gap Between the Geospatial and Operational Worlds

Organizations today are faced with what we call “the Geo-Ops Challenge,” or the gap between the geospatial world — the acquisition, processing, management, and distribution of mapping data — and the operational world — taking this data and analyzing it to take action. And it’s not just traditional geospatial data anymore, but also real-time feeds from dozens of sensors that provide video, pollution, traffic, people flow, and even crowd-sourcing data. In this complex and connected world, conventional GIS no longer suffices. Hexagon Geospatial solutions link data acquisition with action by interconnecting the geospatial and operational worlds. Customers of all sizes – from sites to cities to nations – use 5D location intelligence to solve real-world, real-time, mission-critical challenges.
