AGI Scotland

Representing the interests of Scottish geospatial community

About AGI Scotland

AGI Scotland is a national group of the AGI, focusing on the interests of the geographic information community in Scotland.

The objectives of AGI Scotland are to:

  • Promote awareness
  • Actively engage
  • Bring together people
  • Deliver on a targeted range of projects
  • Influence and promote the use of GI

 

In addition to representing member views, AGI Scotland actively works to provide development and networking opportunities to Scottish members. This is provided through an annual one-day event and regular seminars throughout the year.

AGI Scotland sponsors the University of Edinburgh EEO Seminar Series. All members are welcome to attend these events, which can see audiences up to 60+. They provide an excellent opportunity to learn about different areas of the geospatial industry, and promote networking opportunities between professionals and postgraduate students.

AGI Scotland also supports the work of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) and is working to build stronger links on shared areas of interest.

Training and Skills

AGI Scotland listened to our members and became aware of a growing skills gap.  Our profession tends to draw on those with Masters degrees, who are becoming harder to find.  Equally our industry lacks diversity in all manner of ways and we realised that it was important to bring enthusiastic new people in at all different levels.  Equally continuous processional development is important.

We have partnered with Location Data Scotland (LDS) and the University of Edinburgh, together with many other bodies and organisations.
