5th Digital Earth Summit

The International Society for Digital Earth will be hosting the 5th Digital Earth Summit under the theme “Digital Earth for ESD” from 9 – 11 November 2014 in Nagoya, Japan. This planned Digital Earth Summit will focus on how Digital Earth technologies and activities have contributed or will contribute to Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Digital Earth technologies are one of the key technologies to support ESD by visualizing complicated earth system and social system not only for the current situation but from the past to future.

The Digital Earth Summit Series have been convened at Auckland (2006), Potsdam (2008), Nessebar (2010) and Wellington (2012). This year’s summit will provide inspiration for enriching the digital earth vision and promoting collaborations amongst participating institutions, and also offer a dynamic arena for individuals to share knowledge and experiences.
