It’s summer time and we leave the roads for our topic of the 2nd GeoMonday in 2017, Offstreet. Topics like Routing, Navigation or Traffic Managment are always present and are based on streets, respectively road networks. On the 26th June we address businesses which need to solve spatial problems off-road. Roadless areas occupy a major part of the world and are versatilely used by private people and companies. Typical examples are outdoor activities such as mountain biking, skiing or hiking. To support them, services have to provide detailed information like terrain and weather as well as results of spatial analyses, e.g. avalanche risk. But also businesses like forestry or agriculture have to deal with spatial issues in roadless areas. Inventories have to be mapped and actions have to be defined based on spatial analyses. These are only a few examples of fascinating geospatial issues off-road. Join us on 26th June in Potsdam to enter the world of road-free areas and to get an idea of what happens outside the highway.
