Wherever there is a service, there is a location where that service is delivered. In an emergency, medical care is delivered at a specific location; businesses advertise their location to customers; and governments need location data on people and businesses for revenue mobilization. Location data is crucial for businesses and the general public in terms of delivering/accessing services. The framework for location data, its analytics and intelligence is called Geospatial Science and Technology (GST). GST combines technology, data and people to answer questions about our natural and man-made world. GST includes Geographic Information System (GIS) Remote Sensing, Global Positioning System (GPS), digital mapping, and all other locational methodologies. GST is used to power millions of decisions in areas including agriculture, health, energy, disasters, security, crime, urban management, transportation and natural resources. The central theme in these challenges is location and its descriptive information, thus the need for GST. GST is a vibrant multidisciplinary field, with diverse applications and job opportunities. GST is used by Engineers, Scientists, Planners, Social Scientists, Government, businesses and the general public. Today, GST is a new common language for professionals, widely required by industry as location data are used to power millions of decisions in almost every sector of society and government. Consequently, this International Conference on Geography and Development (INCOGaD-2020) is highly essential – creating a forum to share scholarly and practical ideas to tackle critical societal problems. It is the second of its kind to be hosted by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology – Kumasi, Ghana.
