The goal of the Inspire Helsinki 2019 event is to bring 150 developers, project managers, technical people and influencers of the European spatial data infrastructure to Helsinki to demonstrate the capacity of latest technologies and to see what can be achieved with European spatial data now and in the future, how to improve both decision-making and the daily life of everyone. The event also hosts keynotes and technical workshops.
