Members may already be aware of the sad news of the ​death of Lord Chorley at the end of February. Lord Chorley was responsible for the Chorley Report in 1987 on The National Geographical Information Policy of Britain, the trigger that launched the AGI.

Lord Chorley continued to maintain links with AGI and members were in attendance at his memorial service held on 19th April.  We are aware that many members will have memories of his involvement with  the association. With the help of Stephen Booth at GIS Professional, we would like to publish recollections about Lord Chorley from the AGI membership, which will feature in the June edition of GIS Professional.

If you would like to send in your memories about Lord Chorley by no later than 19th May 2016 to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., we will then forward them onto Stephen.

In the mean time, you will find his obituary here which featured in The Guardian:
