Successful Final BLAST Conference

On September 17-18th, the BLAST project held its final conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.

On the programme were both keynote speeches and "showcase" sessions in which BLAST's four technical work packing presented their results.

The six keynote speeches addressed how BLAST has contributed to the development of how geodata for land and sea are handled in the public, private and academic sectors. They also perspectivised how future trends will continue to demand problem-solving approaches like those that BLAST used.
