UN Forum on the future trends in geospatial info management

Forum on the future trends in geospatial information management: the five to ten year vision to be held on 24 April 2012, 14:00-17:00 at the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

A working group was established to assess the future trends in geospatial information management at the 1st meeting of the UN Committee on Global Geospatial Information Management (GGIM, http://ggim.un.org/ ) in Seoul, Korea. Chaired by Dr. Vanessa Lawrence, Director General and Chief Executive of Ordnance Survey, the working group has received written inputs from 29 persons or institutions. A summary of the future trends shall be presented during this forum in Amsterdam, followed by discussion among all the participants. Meanwhile, the process of soliciting views on future trends continue and the working group welcome any additional inputs. A consolidated paper on the future trends shall be discussed in the 2nd Session of the Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management. Output from that session will then be used to develop further iterations of the document to be presented to the Committee for review at its second formal meeting in New York in August (13-15th August 2012). Final editing will take place based on the content of the discussions at this meeting and a final paper will be presented at the Second High-Level Forum on GGIM in Qatar (4-6 February, 2013).
