The joint conference “DIGITAL REALITY: Geospatial Data and Technologies” will unite the 20th International Scientific and Technical Conference “From Imagery to Digital Reality: ERS & Photogrammetry” (JSC Racurs) and the 3rd International Scientific and Practical Conference “Geodesy, Cartography and Digital Reality” (Roscartography). The conference will take place from the 6th to the 9th of September in the city of Irkutsk, Russia.
Irkutsk is an important city for our companies. 21 years ago, right here, at the coast of the Baikal lake, a tradition to organize the JSC Racurs Conference was born. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the conference last year due to the pandemic. The year 2021 is the 75th anniversary of one of our oldest companies JSC VostSib AGP. This is how one city united our companies, reinforcing the technological partnership and friendship.
We are convinced that the joint conference “DIGITAL REALITY: Geospatial Data and Technologies” will bring together all our numerous friends, partners, industry peers not only to remember how it all started, but also to plan the future of cartography, geodesy, photogrammetry and the Earth remote sensing technologies.
Sergey Karutin, CEO of JSC Roscartography:
I’m very happy to announce that Roscartography and Racurs decided to unite their two conferences, the 20th Anniversary Scientific and Technical Conference “From Imagery to Digital Reality: ERS & Photogrammetry” (JSC Racurs) and the 3rd International Scientific and Practical Conference “Geodesy, Cartography and Digital Reality” (Roscartography). We decided to hold them on the same days - from the 6th to the 9th of September 2021 in Irkutsk. The joint conference will be called “DIGITAL REALITY: Geospatial Data and Technologies”. It’s a significant step for both of our companies - to combine the knowledge and effort for the development of the post pandemic Russian economy, to offer to the Government and businesses a platform to make decisions for the country’s technological breakthrough.
The development of the geodesy and cartography, as well as Russian IT-technologies in the area of geodesy and cartography, becomes an important, or even a key element of the competition at the global market. The leadership of the JSC Racurs, partner of Roscartography, in this area is indisputable. Russia is able to offer to everyone, including the world community, its experience, knowledge and technologies, that can be used not only in economy, but also in everyday life of every human on the planet.
The future described by the XX century fiction writers is coming - automated cars and flying drones, AR experience and automated systems for the agriculture, forest and other industries. Russia has an enormous potential to take a leading position in the global market of specialized geographic information systems. We are inviting you to participate in our joint conference “DIGITAL REALITY: Geospatial Data and Technologies”, create a new digital reality and a bright future of Russia.
Viktor Adrov, CEO of JSC Racurs:
JSC Racurs has a long history of business and friendly relationship with JSC Roscartography. After many years of being involved in creation of digital photogrammetric systems it couldn’t help but start cooperating with the leading companies of the country working in the area of the ERS data processing. Geospatial, surveying and other companies that joined JSC Roscartography have been using and are still using JSC Racurs technologies. Management and key personnel of these companies have always been actively participating in scientific and technical conferences organized by Roscartography.
The pandemic changed the plans and in 2020 we didn’t hold the traditional Racurs conference. However, in 2021 we decided to develop further partnership with the leading cartography company of Russia - JSC Roscartography - not only in the area of creating and incorporating GIS technology, but also to organize a joint scientific and technical conference called “DIGITAL REALITY: Geospatial Data and Technologies”.
In my opinion the new joint event will reinforce the knowledge and experience exchange, demonstrate tendencies of geoinformatics and provide an opportunity to discuss its future. The pandemic worsened our communication, but it didn’t stop technological development. We haven’t seen each other for a while, we’ve got something to tell and speculate on. We are inviting professionals in geoinformatics to Irkutsk from the 6th to the 9th of September to the conference DIGITAL REALITY: Geospatial Data and Technologies”.
See you at the Baikal!
