The need for capacity building in geospatial and internet governance in Africa has been well articulated by many researchers which need stems from two main reasons; first the role of geospatial and internet technology in economic development of Africa and secondly the weaknesses of past capacity building efforts in geospatial technology in Africa. This technologies provide not only the data and the tools, but also an entire framework within which efficient and effective spatial and internet decisions can be made in Africa.
It is on this background that the African Open Data and Internet Research Foundation is putting together the Africa Geospatial Data and Internet Conference and exhibition from the 21st-25th of October, 2019 at Accra International conference center, Ghana with the theme “Shaping the Digital Future of Africa”. This conference is set to bring together all stakeholders globally to discuss, market, share in the knowledge, and network to find possible solutions for Africa.
