Would you be willing to share your insights with us, please?
AGI and Scottish Government are hosting a discussion on the Geospatial Commission’s forthcoming consultation. We’ll be focusing in particular on the priorities for Scotland – and we would like to hear your views.
“Using geospatial data more effectively may deliver up to £11bn per annum in benefits for the private sector, and this means there’s a huge opportunity for Scotland’s economy…”
The session will aim to raise awareness of the Commission’s scope and ambitions. It will be a moderated briefing, free of charge, and we’ll also be canvassing your thoughts on future use of geospatial information across Scotland – challenges and opportunities.
- Morning discussion - 24th September (timing will be shared with successful delegates)
- National Record of Scotland (NRS) The Dome Seminar, New Registers House, Edinburgh.
The outcomes will be published two forms: as a paper that will be distributed exclusively to AGI members, and in a series of reports that will be updated as the Commission’s work progresses.
Don’t miss out – register your interest before 16th September!
From the applications, we’ll select around 30 AGI members who represent an excellent cross-section of the GI community in Scotland. Numbers will be limited, but we do want to be sure of engaging with a representative audience. (We’ll confirm exact timings to you, on confirmation of your attendance.) From surveyor to supplier, from cartographer to CEO – we encourage you all to apply now – make your voice heard!
Please apply by email, and include the following information in your application:
- Job title
- What interests you most about the Geospatial Commission’s scope or remit?"
Why should you take part?
We’re seeing a rapidly evolving geospatial market. For the UK as a whole, that UK Government analysis of between £6bn and £11bn in benefits paints a very bright future. Here in Scotland, we want to be sure we’re taking advantage of every opportunity, so your views on how and what that future looks like are formative.
We look forward to hearing from you,
