AGI Award winners 2015

 
 

Having launched the AGI Foresight Report 2020 on the first evening of GeoCom, 23rd November, led by Dr Anne Kemp of Atkins, we're very pleased that it has been so widely downloaded and received so well. Providing insights into the issues which will affect the GI industry and beyond, you can choose to either read the whole report, the summary or the launch presentation slides. Additionally, we’ll include snippets from the report in this and future newsletters to give you a taste of what the report has to offer. We’d love This email address is being protected from spambots.

The stellar theme continues with the stars who won their categories in the AGI Awards for Geospatial Excellence 2015 ceremony event which took place on 25th November and who can now be seen in the AGI Awards Brochure here. Our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and indeed, everyone who entered a project last year.

We're delighted to announce that AGI Scotland will be hosting their Annual Event on 16th March with a focus on emerging technologies and with fantastic plenary speakers Ed Parsons of Google and Craig Clarke of Clyde Space. More information about the event and how you can get involved is here.

The Early Careers Network activities have also got off to a fine start this year with its Networking evening earlier this week seeing new friends and useful contacts being made. We will be announcing further dates soon so keep an eye on our website for these and our other events. Already we have over 180 registrations for the ECN webinar on 10th February about cartography and cartographic design. Sign up here!

In early December we held the AGI London group launch event which proved popular, and our recent survey of those delegates indicates a lot of enthusiasm for more events in similar inspiring venues, along with offers of help in the future. Watch this space!

Finally, the results of the AGI Council elections mean that there are five new council members for 2016, so you can see who they are here. Our best wishes to them in their new roles.

As ever, if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our services, please do contact us.

With our best regards

Excerpt below is from section 4.1 Open (p21) of
The AGI Foresight Report 2020

To thrive and achieve its full future potential, the GI Community must embrace openness in the broadest sense; open standards; open data, open systems; open architectures and open and collaborative business models.

Many organisations are nervous of releasing data with fears over quality, potential misuse and potential lost revenues. Take a leap of faith and release your data.

Encourage and educate on the benefits of data sharing, better utilisation and encourage openness.

Look at collaboration opportunities with other areas outside our space which may have mutual benefits to both.

Continue to work on standards, and ensure that we work with the existing bodies outside our usual space.
