UN-SPIDER participates in meeting of UN Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management

More than 50 global geospatial experts got together in Amsterdam on 24th April 2012, including David Stevens representing UN-SPIDER, to discuss the “Future trends in geospatial information management: the five to ten year vision”. The invited experts and visionaries came from across a wide range of aspects of the geospatial community – from data collection experts, academics and major users of geospatial information to leading figures from the private sector and the Volunteer and Technical Community.

Participants were invited to contribute their views on the emerging trends in the geospatial world. Discussions carried out during the meeting will enable the leaders of this Visionary Group to develop further iterations on a document to be presented to the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management for review at the second formal meeting in New York in August (13-15 August 2012). Final editing will take place based on the content of the discussions at this meeting and a final paper will be presented at the Second High-Level Forum on GGIM in Qatar in 2013.
