AGI Cymru Conference 2011: GIS in the cloud

Laine Skinner from ESDM presented under the ‘New Directions’ theme at the AGI Cymru Conference. Held at Cardiff City Hall at the end of November, the AGI Cymru winter conference was attended by around 80 people and had a fair mix of managers and developers from different organizations around Wales.

Unfortunately there is no online content from the conference, although speaker details are available from the AGI and speakers are usually more than happy to discuss their work and forward details onward.

Laine’s presentation was titled:

GIS Cloud: Money for old rope or a new direction?

Its available as a prezi (cloud based presentation service) here. The presentation provides a short description about what the ‘GIS Cloud’ is and why it might be useful to a whole range of organizations. We discuss some practical uses of a real cloud implementation on Amazons AWS product.
