Groups audience: 

Hi all, I also think that although it is very useful to have conference
calls between meetings, the WG has to have F2F meetings at the RDA meetings
as well. It really isn't an RDA WG otherwise. The option, which may take
some time, is to raise some funds for the activity. But the larger question
appears to be chair(s) of the IG itself, and then also the formation of one
or more WGs.

    Hi All,
    I think it will be helpful to find suitable colleagues who will be able to commit dedicated  time for Geospatial IG activities to take my place. They can then put in place structures for new WGs , arrange tele meetings of WGs etc.
    I request those interested to come forward to take my place and drive new ideas for the IG. Luciene Delzari (Brazil) has also informed  previously that she is unable to provide time for the chair activities because of other commitments. so it will be good to find suitable candidates to replace her also.
    We have build a strong community for Geospatial IG , so I am hopeful we can use these structures in place for building future activities for the Geospatial IG. I will provide all my support for the new chairs and activities of the IG for the future. I also want to thank everyone who helped in starting this IG and participated in the community discussions and meetings.
    Best wishes,
    Suchith

    Thank you Maria. It will be great if  your young researcher colleague can lead this and I will welcome this and can support the nomination. I understand the issue of high  travel costs, registration costs and as far as I know there is no mechanism in RDA to cover this. 
    Another option is not to have Plenary meetings for the IG but we form an online community and online tele meetings  to plan actions. This way, we can remove this hurdle. Please  suggest this as an option and let us see if others agree. That way, we can make sure in future there is less hurdles.
    Best wishes,
    Suchith

    Dear Suchith I write you privately to have more pieces of information. A young researcher working with me can cover considering his talent and enthusiasm, this role. But I know that there are at least two events every year and registration and travel cost can be a problem. Are there special conditions oe support for people involved in leading the groups?This is very crucial for his involvement, as he doesn't have funds for attending events...Many thanks and best regards!Maria

    Dear colleagues,The RDA11 Plenary is held in Berlin from 21-23rd March, 2018. It will be good to know who all will be interested to attend if  there is a  Geospatial IG meeting at P11.Since the start of establishing an IG, we have provided opportunity for bringing for all interested in 'geo' data aspects in RDA and outside for exploring synergies . We have one of the largest number of members involved in this IG. Though we had some colleagues interested in starting Transport WG [1] etc, it has not moved forward. It will be very helpful if we can get some help in getting these WGs started. We have been  using the IG for building synergies with key initiatives GeoForAll, NASA Europa Challenge, OpenCitySmart etc, so maybe it is an opportunity now to find champions for specific work.I am grateful for the opportunity to start this IG and build ideas. As i am now busy with many other key responsibilities , I think it is now time for me to hand over the IG leadership to colleagues who can invest time to take this forward. So please come forward and take leadership for any activities you wish to take forward.Looking forward to ideas/inputs from all.Best wishes,Suchith [1] https://rd-alliance.org/group/ geospatial-ig/post/re-transpor tation-wg-case-statement--
