Working Groups


Until 2010, UNGIWG identified two major headings under which its voluntary activities were carried out via its Working Groups: Data and Services. At that time there were six Working Groups (WG).

WGswere comprised of interested experts and practitioners from UNGIWG member organisations. WG memberschose their Group Leaders.They held meetings as necessary and reported on their accomplishments at annual UNGIWG plenary meetings.

At UNGIWG’s Seventh Plenary meeting, it was decided that Working Group 1 (International and administrative boundaries) and Working Group 2 (Core Geo-Database) were consolidated into one.
