The GeoNorth 2009 conference is a unique opportunity to discuss issues 
and present current research related to geospatial activities in the 
arctic environment. This conference provides an opportunity to present 
results associated with the International Polar Year (IPY), environment 
and climate change monitoring and geographic analysis, geospatial 
standards and their application, and the construction of virtual 
collaborative networks including Arctic mapping and the virtual Arctic 
Spatial Data Infrastructure (ASDI). The conference is coordinated by the 
USGS, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the IPY Program Committee.

Sessions are planned for the following themes with a focus on the 
development, publication, and application of interdisciplinary data for 
analysis and re-use in the Arctic context:

     * Societal, cultural, and indigenous mapping of local and 
traditional knowledge
     * Imagery, remote sensing, and sensor networks for the arctic landscape
     * Virtual globes, geo-browsers, and spatio-temporal data exploration
     * Ocean data access and analysis
     * Natural resource assessment in the Arctic
     * Understanding and assessing changes on land and ice
     * Climate and atmospheric data, trends, and analysis
     * Forum on arctic mapping and the Arctic Spatial Data Infrastructure
     * Geosphere and hydrosphere modeling
     * Understanding geospatial standards and their application

The following website includes information on the conference, the Call 
for Papers, and registration details. We look forward to your participation!
