What, How and Why?
18 October 2010
UN’s initiative to enhance and coordinate global geospatial information management (GGIM).
By setting up a formal mechanism under the UN auspices to discuss and coordinate GGIM activities and by involving Member States as the key players.
No initiative/organization exists in the current global geospatial information community?
One more conference, travel, endless talk and headache?
Opportunity rather than Competition
Existing national and regional activities not enough?
UN is the only entity for Member States to get together?
