Over the last few years AGI members will probably have heard of the UN Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (or UN-GGIM for short) – a new part of the UN structure which is focusing on issues relevant to our industry. The Committee meets once a year and the fifth session is being held from 5-7th August 2015. Ordnance Survey and the Office for National Statistics will be attending and representing the United Kingdom.
Here is a flavour of the sort of topics covered:
Links to the papers to be discussed, and the full list of topics can be found on the UN-GGIM website (http://ggim.un.org/ggim_committee.html), and your comments on any of the papers are welcomed. The Policy and Engagement Team within Ordnance Survey will then draw all the views received, pick out the key themes and draw them to a conclusion in a position document.
So, if you would like to review and submit comments on the papers, please do so.
