Date sent: 25 May 2007 Greetings, The International Society for Digital Earth announces its next conference is coming up this June 5th through 9th at UC Berkeley. This is the first time the conference, the International Symposium for Digital Earth, has come to the United States. June 6 will have a particular emphasis on GIS and developments in spatial data access. The Society describes itself as follows: "The Digital Earth vision embraces a philosophy that any citizen of the planet, linked through the Internet, should be able to freely access a virtual world of information and knowledge resources. This philosophy supports the dream of ubiquitous education for the people of the planet. A rich convergence of technological advances, active visionaries, and recognition of the paramount need for humans to better understand the Earth and its systems comprises the history of this dynamic and exciting enterprise." The coming event includes speakers from NASA Worldwind, Google Earth, and a wide range of concerned individuals seeking to make a difference for society and the environment.
