To be a thriving UK geospatial community, actively supporting a sustainable future
The AGI exists to represent the interests of the UK's geospatial industry. As the Association for Geographic Information, we lead, connect and develop a community of individual and corporate members who use and benefit from geographic information.
The AGI is an independently-funded and impartial organisation which aims to educate and support all existing and new practitioners and participants in the industry, in order to maximize the benefits delivered by GI, and to develop awareness of its potential.
The AGI works in collaboration with sponsors, other industry bodies and member organisations to realise its mission. It has represented the views of its members to government and other decision makers for over 30 years.
The role of the AGI is to collaboratively provide thought leadership, to challenge and develop our members, and to do this in a way that captures the enthusiasm of a strong network of professionals by bringing out the sense of passion and fun that happens when people are focused on what they do best.
The terms 'Geographic Information' (GI) and 'geospatial' are used across the site dependent on context, with GI referring to technologies and data, and geospatial referring to the industry and processes.
