LIKE ME Conference Addresses Climate Change at First Virtual Conference

Industry experts and academia addressed climate change using geolocation intelligence at this year’s LIKE ME (Like Mother Earth) Conference.

It was the first year the conference was ever held virtually. Held on February 16 and 23, as well as March 2 and 9, LIKE ME continued its vision to push technology boundaries of location intelligence within climate action on a global scale.

LIKE, or the Location Intelligence Knowledge Exchange, is devoted to location intelligence, was created to bring together practitioners and interested groups so an exchange of ideas and technologies could occur.

The LIKE ME Conference papers have now been published. You can find them here:
