Asset Management

The Asset Management SIG aims to enable to promote cross-sector networking, skills transfer, sharing best practices and lessons learnt within the following disciplines: Location Analytics, Mapping, Geospatial Information Management and Data Visualisation for Physical Asset Management.

The scope of the SIG takes the application of Asset Management beyond Utilities and Telecoms.  This allows common themes, working regimes and enabling technologies to be shared across a range of sectors including Rail, Highways, Utilities, Power and Telecoms.

We reconise that asset management is a cross discipline subject, taking in both geospatial, data, information systems and information technology skills. The SIG is interested in the cross-over of these skills within organisations.  Examples of common activities where Geospatial and Location Solutions are central are: Asset Management Systems (AMS)-GIS integration, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-GIS integration, Master Data Management (MDM), Mobility and asset tracking.  If you are a GIS Professional, why not invite your IT / IS colleagues to one of our events!

Themes / activities

Current Asset Management SIG themes include operational awareness, maintenance planning, logistics, improving operational efficiencies, facility management and works management.

Membership Benefits

Convene, connect and collaborate

We provide many networking opportunities for members at our events, seminars and workshops, encouraging debate and forward thinking for the benefit of the whole community.

Promoting the value and benefits of GI

We work hard to ensure that the AGI's voice extends beyond the GI industry, as the considerable pace of technological advancements enables everyone to do more with their data.

Representing the GI community to policy makers

We are continually engaging with the Geospatial Commission's senior leadership team to represent your views and influence policy. We advocate for the investment in skills, shared standards and best practice, as well as better access to data.

Providing a focus for the GI community

The AGI's flagship event, GeoCom, provides a platform for world class speakers to share their vision of where geospatial information professionals can create a step change to deliver economic and societal value.

CPD, training and education

We actively encourage all our members to continue learning by participating in our free CPD scheme and to exchange their geospatial expertise with each other. Corporate members can seek CPD accreditation points for their training courses.
