Booz Allen Hamilton will focus on the role of Geospatial Services, Strategy and Governance in underpinning the development of Gulf infrastructure at the Esri International User Conference taking place July 23-27 in San Diego, California.
Booz Allen Hamilton's expertise engages innovative geographic information services (GIS) into full lifecycle support programs for clients, with a proven ability to bridge strategy, design, and implementation activities.
Booz Allen Hamilton will host a MENA focused seminar at the Esri International User Conference on July 24th, highlighting the broad range of applications of GIS across different sectors in the Gulf. Public health, security, national defense, sustainable development, transportation, nature conservation, management of natural resources, regional and community planning and landscape architecture are all essential to the development of Gulf infrastructure and the growth of its local economy and societies.
Commenting ahead of the conference, Booz Allen Hamilton's MENA General Manager Mr. Don Pressley said "GIS is essential in so many ways to so many different sectors, helping us understand our environment, effectively engineer change and see true progress. We believe that the use of GIS to search for common ground, collaborate and share information across different countries will be a hallmark of GIS development in the Gulf for the next 10 years, literally mapping the region's future."
