Over the last five months our joint advocacy work with RGS-IBG has delivered many positive outcomes notably in establishing contacts with other professional bodies with whom we might in future work.
Amongst these the British Property Federation has already commenced collecting information on the extent to which its members use geographic information and related technologies in their decision making. With the support of a number of members we have also submitted strong responses to a number of policy consultations and to a briefing note on Earth Observation, contributing to the report soon to be published by the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology https://www.parliament.uk/post. The work has also delivered a draft Code of Professional Practise which Council will review later this year, and work has begun on a compendium of persuasive case studies, drawing on those already available from existing sources including the AGI membership, which will be made available through the AGI and RGS-IBG websites.
The work has been led by the Senior Public Affairs Manager, Damian Testa, employed by RGS-IBG but working on a programme of advocacy jointly agreed and jointly funded by AGI. Damian will be leaving this week to take up a new position in a railway industry body and recruitment of a successor is already underway.
