UN-GGIM Beyond SDI session invitiation

06 Aug 2021
Groups audience: 

Dear colleagues, friends, geospatial enthusiasts,
A Beyond SDI info session will happen on 11 August 2021 at 12:00 UTC as
part of the Eleventh Session of the United Nations Committee of Experts
on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM):
Since the SDI conceptualisation was developed in the late 1980s and
early 1990s there have been many technological and other changes which
have quite radically changed the environment for geospatial information
and analytics. There is thus a need to re-think and re-align the way in
which geospatial information is shared, analysed and used in the rapidly
changing environment of today and into the future.
A group of geospatial experts from around the world who were brought
together by EUROGI, the European Umbrella Organisation for Geographic
Information, has produced a paper which proposes the idea of a
geospatial ecosystem as a basis for establishing a new updated framework.
The two main aims of the session are to briefly outline the ideas set
out in the paper and to obtain feedback from the session attendees which
will be used to revise the paper and further develop the ideas presented
in the paper.
