Hexagon Geospatial and Imagem Introduce the Hexagon Smart M.App® at COP21 in Paris
Provides Decision-Makers with a Dashboard View of Climate Change Using the Dynamic Hexagon Smart M.App®02 December 2015
Hexagon Geospatial and our partner Imagem have been invited by the Institute for Environmental Security to present the Hexagon Smart M.App® at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris. At the annual COP, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Kyoto Protocol gather at the United Nations’ Climate Summit to discuss a new international agreement on climate change. This year, the event takes place from 30 November to 11 December and will include 147 Heads of State, making COP21 one of the world’s largest diplomatic gatherings.
Along with formal negotiations, side events will provide the conference participants with opportunities to share information, exchange views, debate, and promote solutions. Representatives from states, governmental institutions and civil society can communicate their proposals, promote actions and campaigns, and hold public discussions with other negotiation stakeholders.
Together, Hexagon Geospatial and Imagem, our partner from the Benelux region of Europe, have been asked to participate in the session on remote sensing as means of tracking and predicting climatic change on Thursday, 3 December in the African Pavilion.
During the “Satellite observation as a tool to assess the security risks associated with climatic and environmental changes” session, Claudio Mingrino, Hexagon Geospatial Executive Director EMEA, will explain how groundbreaking geospatial technologies and applications can be useful—and sometimes vital—for a beneficial relationship between human beings and the environment. He will show how data derived through satellite observation can contribute to understanding and provide early warning for potential security risks.
In side discussions, Imagem will introduce participants to the Hexagon Smart M.App, a powerful communication tool tailored for decision-makers of all sectors.
“The Hexagon Smart M.App empowers us to predict what should be,” said Hexagon Geospatial President, Mladen Stojic. “It provides us with a reflection of what was, information about what is, insight into what can be, and trust and confidence in what will be.”
By combining a connection to the latest content sources with the latest use-case-specific workflows and informative analytics in an intuitive dashboard view, Hexagon Smart M.Apps can provide decision-makers with a dynamic, clearer picture of the impacts of their actions and ultimately provide insight for better decision-making for the environment.
With 40,000 people expected on site, Hexagon Geospatial and Imagem are looking forward to introducing this freshly launched innovation to a wide and diverse audience.
