GeoAI Research and Technology Transfer for National Mapping highlights the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for national mapping. The presentation emphasizes the use of GeoAI technology for efficient and accurate data acquisition, processing, and analysis in the GIS, Cartography and Mapping fields.

Dr Arundel will discuss the potential benefits of AI in mapping, such as reduced costs, increased accuracy, and faster mapping processes. The presentation also discusses various applications of GeoAI technology, such as image recognition, object detection, and optical character recognition (OCR). Of particular emphasis is the importance of partnerships between research institutions and government agencies to promote the adoption of AI technology in mapping. Finally, the presentation showcases some examples of successful implementation of GeoAI technology in national mapping, including the use of AI for feature extraction from various types of imagery, noise reduction in point-clouds, and OCR for knowledge extraction from historical maps.
