With this year's theme, "Embrace the GeoCloud Innovation", SuperMap GIS Conference 2011 (SGC 2011) drew to a close on Saturday, 17 September in Beijing after three days. Through a showcase of the latest SuperMap GIS technologies, various success stories and mature solutions in different industries, SGC 2011 proved a great success with about 4,000 conference participants.
