Virtual UN-GGIM High-Level Forum Events on Geospatial Information Management - 25/05/2020


During the upcoming weeks, the UN Statistics Division, as Secretariat for the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM), and Ordnance Survey of Great Britain will jointly organize a series of three virtual high-level forum events on geospatial information management.

Although it was unable to proceed with the UN-GGIM Sixth High-Level Forum due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UN is now launching 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 the 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:

Event #1
The Geospatial Landscape, and overview of Integrated Geospatial Information Framework and Future Trends in Geospatial Information Management
26 May 2020, Tuesday
