Aurora, Colo., Feb. 13, 2006-Galdos Systems Inc., Vancouver, British Columbia, and the Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA), Aurora, Colo., are pleased to announce their partnership to present GeoWeb 2006 at the Morris J. Wosk Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, July 24-28, 2006.

GeoWeb 2006 will unite GIS and the Internet to provide business opportunities, specifications, technology development, and business and policy models.

"The collision of GIS and the Internet will have a significant impact on the way geographic information is utilized in commercial, consumer-oriented, and government applications," said Ron Lake, CEO of Galdos Systems Inc. "This is an important technology shift that will lead to the emergence of many new markets."

GeoWeb 2006 is an outgrowth of the successful GML and Geo-Spatial Web Services Conference and GML Days, which were held from 2001 to 2005. Galdos Systems Inc. decided to broaden the conference scope to enrich the educational experience and move the world of Internet GIS and geographic information Web services into the future. This vision led them to change the conference name to "GeoWeb" and forge a partnership with GITA.

"The potential for application of Web services and related technologies that GeoWeb 2006 will address is vital to the geospatial marketplace and GITA's membership," said Bob Samborski, GITA's Executive Director. "We look forward to working with Galdos and their sponsoring companies to ensure the immediate educational relevance of the conference."

GeoWeb 2006 welcomes both public and private organizations to meet, discuss, and learn about today's most innovative geospatial technologies. The conference will include dedicated workshops on Geography Markup Language (GML), KML, MapPoint, LandXML, and OGC Web Services for GIS.

The conference schedule will also include keynote speakers, panel sessions, product demonstrations, and educational sessions. The call for papers was issued Jan. 30, 2006, and prospective speakers are encouraged to submit abstracts by March 31, 2006.
