On June 3, 2017, Intellias continues fueling the Ukrainian map development community by hosting the third annual Map Solutions Conference in Lviv. This conference will bring together more than 200 experienced professionals to share best practices and discuss what’s trending in routing, traffic services, 3D rendering, and in-house navigation.
The Map Solutions Conference adheres to the canons of “conference-as-an-experience” providing participants not only with tech talks but also with a remarkable atmosphere and a discussion-friendly environment.
Last year, the Map Solutions Conference took place in Kyiv, attracting tech and business experts from HERE, Yandex, CartoDB, OsmAnd, Mapbox, MAPS.ME, FamilyInSafe, Qrok, and GisFile. These experts delivered presentations that helped push forward the vibrant map development community in Ukraine.
The 2016 conference drew a diverse cohort of more than 150 experts from Ukraine, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, and Russia. Much attention was paid at the conference to the HERE mapping system, with its innovative approach to collecting HD maps from car sensor systems to redefine the future of real-time mapping with autonomous cars.
What to expect this year
The 2017 conference will feature a wide range of topics covering various domains, platforms, and approaches. Presenters will include industry leaders who are bringing mapping innovations to our daily driving. Speakers will talk about routing, navigation, traffic and public transit services, 3D rendering, geocoding, and more.
