Virtual High-Level Forum Events on United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management
We have the pleasure, on behalf of Mr. Stefan Schweinfest and Mr. Steve Blair, to announce that the UN Statistics Division, as Secretariat for the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM), and supported by Ordnance Survey of Great Britain, will organize a series of three virtual high-level forum events.
Although we were unable to proceed with the UN-GGIM Sixth High Level Forum due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be able to launch the Implementation Guide of the Integrated Geospatial Information Framework and the Future Trends in Geospatial Information Management: Five to Ten-year Vision third edition, both of which are presently undergoing broad global consultation and review processes. Both the Implementation Guide and the Future Trends report are of significant relevance to our global geospatial community.
This series of three virtual high-level forum events are scheduled at weekly intervals each lasting up to three hours, and they are –
The Geospatial Landscape, and overview of Integrated Geospatial Information Framework and Future Trends in Geospatial Information Management
Tuesday 26 May - 11:00hrs UTC | 12:00hrs BST
