About ICUG

The world is witnessing an unprecedented rate of urbanization. United Nations Population Fund report of 2014 estimates that, by the year 2030, the world’s urban population is likely to rise to 5 billion from the current 3.9 billion, with Asia and Africa witnessing the maximum growth. Challenges of rapid urbanisation, ranging from governance, infrastructure and environment, can be effectively solved by integrating many varied multi-disciplinary fields - including Geoinformatics. Integration of spatial information with spatial data relating to complex problems in urban sciences and urban engineering is rapidly gaining acceptance as a means of making future cities 'smart' as well as sustainable.

The International conference on Urban Geoinformatics-2017 provides a platform to share and discuss the advancements in Geospatial technologies in urban and related disciplines. This conference serves as a platform for researchers, professionals and students from around the world for acquiring/ disseminating knowledge, and experience in the field of Urban Geoinformatics.
