Technology develops most successfully when specialists exchange information freely; one of the most unique aspects of this conference is its international reach. Over its seventeen-year history, the conference has been held in fourteen and has hosted participants from thirty-five countries.

The culture of “pali-pali” (faster-faster) allowed South Korea to become a world technological leader in a short time. As a result, one of the world’s best cadastre and cartography application systems was created. In just twenty years, South Korea has changed paper maps to digital ones, weekly updating data about road infrastructure and construction. 

This is one of the few countries that has full-fledged remote-sensing technologies, consisting of optical, radar, and UAV systems. It is no coincidence that the importance of geospatial information is emphasized by the mayor’s office of Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, which rightfully occupies the sixth place in the ranking of Smart Cities of the World.
