30th July 2014

AGI Cymru

The AGI Cymru national group aims to promote the development and use of geographic information in Wales by encouraging improvements in standards and providing training and networking opportunities through events, seminars and conferences.

The Steering Group allows us to:

  • Give Wales a voice within the AGI
  • Address Wales specific issues such as: language, rurality, economic development
  • Develop, monitor and 'own' the GI Strategy for Wales
  • Develop an annual programme of events in Wales culminating in the Annual Conference
  • Pick up and respond to Welsh issues e.g. consultations

Our strength is bringing together a diversity of interests and experiences for the benefit of GI in Wales. We act as a focus for the Welsh GI community and as a resource upon which you can call. 

Please feel free to contact us, so that we can take your ideas and aspirations forward. We want AGI Cymru to be truly representative. We are an active group of like-minded people who want to see GI go mainstream in Wales. We do welcome new members (participating or corresponding) who are committed to sharing our vision.
