Geospatial Water Technology is central to understand and solve problems related to water resources. While geospatial data continue to grow in all three dimensions, including space, time and size, modern tools such as high-performance cloud computing, geospatial data visualization, data analytics, and machine learning/artificial intelligence have enabled the development of novel decision-making frameworks and web-based applications that are integral to the water resources management.

This conference is designed to highlight existing and new geospatial and technological tools to solve water resources-related problems. Innovative water resources scientists, engineers, modelers, software designers from public/government agencies, academic and private sectors convene to exchange ideas, compare challenges and identify solutions. If your aquatic research, management, and conservation involves process models, geo-referenced field data, remote sensing, or geostatistical models, then this is the right conference for you. As water technologies evolve, so is our biennial Geospatial Water Technology Conference! Through this iteration of the GWTC, we especially encourage novel data science applications in water resources.
