Dear UNGIWG Members and Partners,
As an infrastructure that delivers to users integrated spatial information services, a UNSDI can address both technical and non-technical issues, ranging from technical standards and protocols, institutional and organizational issues, including data access policy and the creation and maintenance of geospatial information for a wide range of themes. During the 7th UNGIWG Plenary meeting held in Santiago last November, it has been recognized that the development of a common vision and understanding on the UNSDI is a priority. In order to build on common interests, the UNGIWG Secretariat would like to consult the UN agencies on their internal Geospatial Information access and dissemination capabilities and the activities carried out within the agency that could benefit from the UNSDI.
A Survey Questionnaire has been developed to help us build this common vision. We encourage you to complete this Survey Form and forward it to the UNGIWG Secretariat. Instructions have been included in the Form.
