Geo-Informatics Supported Disaster Risk Reduction and Smarter Urban Management

(November 1-4,2022,Beijing,China)

Two conferences, One event

  • Geo-Information for Disaster Management (Gi4DM)
  • High-level Forum on Urban Geoinformatics (Urban Geoinformatics)


The event is an annual conference devoted to the use and application of geo-information technology in disaster risk reduction. The COVID-19 epidemic ravaging the world since 2020 is one of the most influential plague in human history. New geo-information related strategy/methods/techniques should be developed. The themes of the event will include (not limited to):

  • User needs and requirements
  • Technology developments
  • Applications of Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry to Disaster Monitoring or Management
  • Data collection and management
  • Data integration and knowledge discovery
  • End-user environments for interaction, visualization and updating
  • Positioning and location-based communication
  • Assisted navigation and evacuation
  • Automated mapping
  • Geo-information education for disaster management
  • Development and sharing of geospatial analytics

Urban Geo-Informatics

The world’s population lived in urban areas is expected to arrive 60% by 2030. With dense population, active economy and developed infrastructures, cities are very important for sustainable development of the countries and the world. Geoinformation technologies are essential to better understand, plan, monitor and manage the development of cities. The themes of the event will include (not limited to):

  • Digital Twins
  • Digital Engineering
  • 3D City Modeling
  • Urban Multi-planning Data Fusion
  • Ubiquitous Monitoring and Dynamic Cognition of Urban Development
  • Integration of Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Urban Social Networks
  • Mobility and Transportation
  • Knowledge Engineering
  • Decision-making Support and Service Platform
  • Disaster Management
  • Smart Visualization
  • Megacities
