Beyond shapefiles and file-based data management
2023-11-21, 14:50–15:00 (Asia/Manila), Plenary Hall

If you have more than one person in your GIS team and you're still tethered to shapefiles, you're missing out on a world of opportunities.

In this talk, we'll uncover the limitations of file-based geodata "management systems" and shed light on the advantages of using open geospatial technologies like PostGIS, GeoServer, and QGIS in dynamic, multi-user environments.

Discover why open geospatial is a game changer—and probably the missing piece of your puzzle—whether you're part of an enterprise, organization, local government unit, planning office, DRRM office, or national agency.
