MapWorldForum, Spatial Data Infrastructur, Public Health, NGO ???

10-13 February 2009 Hyderabad, India


Since the 1960s, Geospatial Information or Geospatial Technology has undergone a sea change, that is, from a specialized tool of analyses to a multi-purpose tool capable of not just analysis but also storage, management and visualization of data.



Map World Forum will not just be a conference. It will be a forum that will simply aim to “Converge Ideas and Expand Horizons for Sustainable Planet Earth”. It will aim beyond speeches and discussions to find practical ways to protect the earth and improve people's lives.


Theme: Geospatial Technology for Sustainable Planet Earth

“It takes a century for a forest to grow, and a night of fire to destroy it”. The saying simply reflects the story of our planet ‘Earth’. Over the past few thousand years, humankind, in its quest for better living conditions, has continued to move the wheel of development with increasing earnestness. In the name of development we have made our planet vulnerable than ever before. Development has taken its toll on the natural systems, be it on land, water or air. Burning issues like climate change, ozone depletion, deforestation, water scarcity, man-made disasters, health epidemics, energy crisis, species extinction and loss of natural habitats have become hot topics of research and debate. In other words, we are precariously perched on the edge of a massive impending disaster of an apocalyptic nature- a disaster, which if not prevented soon, will spell doom for all life on Earth.

Spatial Data Infrastructure
Geospatial data is vital for national development owing to its utility in various domains such as environmental planning, disaster management, infrastructure development, natural resource management, urban planning and many more. In this context, initiatives such as building a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) or even a Global Spatial Data Infrastructure become important as they establish a national/global data inventory, thereby, streamlining mechanisms for data availability and delivery to the users and domain experts. Enormous efforts and resources are being chanellised towards the establishment of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) all over the world. This will help to facilitate easy data acquisition and sharing, leading to information standardisation and cost reduction. This seminar will, therefore, focus on the status of SDI activities among the various local and national level organizations in various nations.

--- SDI in Indonesia ??? ---
we can get the answer in http://www.idsn.or.id/


Saat ini pengadaan data survei dan pemetaan (surta) telah banyak dilakukan baik oleh instansi-instansi pemerintah maupun lembaga-lembaga non-pemerintah (swasta), untuk berbagai macam kebutuhan dalam rangka menunjang pembangunan nasional di seluruh wilayah Indonesia.

Permasalahan yang muncul kemudian dan dirasakan oleh semua pihak diantaranya adalah:
* tidak tersedianya informasi tentang keberadaan data yang telah tersedia untuk digunakan, atau sulitnya akses terhadap data menyebabkan terjadinya duplikasi data
* belum adanya penggunaan data secara bersama ( sharing data ) antar institusi
* data yang tersimpan dalam satu sistem tertentu, tidak mudah untuk diekspor ke sistem yang lain.
* lemahnya sistem pendokumentasian data spasial yang tersedia

Designing a geodatabase is a critical process that requires the necessary planning and revision to reach a design, particularly public health such as malaria, dengue control, HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, diabetes, etc...

Public health is "the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals." (1920, C.E.A. Winslow)[citation needed] It is concerned with threats to the overall health of a community based on population health analysis. The population in question can be as small as a handful of people or as large as all the inhabitants of several continents (for instance, in the case of a pandemic). Public health is typically divided into epidemiology, biostatistics and health services. Environmental, social, behavioral, and occupational health are also important subfields.

Government, Private Sector, NGO and i-NGO plays an important role....

Public health plays an important role in disease prevention efforts in both the developing world and in developed countries, through local health systems and through international non-governmental organizations.

--- GIS for Public health now is important thing ---

are you join the forum/seminars ???

i think it's nice opportunity to go there...
