Today we have the honour of co-hosting a series of short interviews about the upcoming BalticGIT conference in Tallinn. I am here with Kreet Solnask and Tanel Jairus from the Board of the Estonian Geoinformatics Society who are organizing the Baltic Geospatial Information Technology Conference (aka BalticGIT). The conference is a unique regional industry event among Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in order to foster cross-border collaboration in the field of geospatial information technology (GIT). Today we have the first of a series of short interviews about the BalticGIT conference.
