GeoCom 2018 in London

Introduction On the 8th November the Association for Geographic Information held their 2018 conference at the Royal Geographical Society in London. Their focus was on productivity - how Location Intelligence can deliver a more productive economy. There was a wide range of speakers in attendance and they provided a diverse take on productivity with some hitting the mark more than others. If there was a common takeaway from the conference it would be about the growing size and availability of data. More on that later. 
Presenters’ highlights Helen Bartlett, Data Manager at the MET Office spoke of their new climate change dataset - UKCP18. The raw data has already been released but November sees the launch of the full service. The UKCP09 service will cease at the end of 2018.  The 2009 data will be archived at the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis catalogue. The maps & reports for the 2018 key findings are available as PDFs. Raw data should be available this month.
