EuroGeographics and EUROGI have announced a collaboration to promote the widespread use of geospatial data. The European not-for-profit associations, which represent national mapping, cadastral and land registration authorities, and users and producers of geospatial data, respectively, will work together on activities of mutual interest. These include opportunities for knowledge exchange and the sharing of expertise and best practice.
Colin Bray, President of EuroGeographics, said: “We are proud to represent official providers of geospatial data across geographical Europe. Members’ accurate, high quality, reliable high-value location data is fundamental to everyday life and underpin the infrastructures we rely on as a modern society. We are committed to working with them to ensure it can be easily accessed by users and producers. Furthering our cooperation with EUROGI is a very positive step in achieving our vision of a society empowered by the use of trusted geospatial data and services.”
Hans Breemerch, President of EUROGI added: “As a non-governmental umbrella organisation for geographic information, we provide an insight into the needs of a wide range of users and producers. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with EuroGeographics to realise our vision for location-based information and technologies to serve as core enablers of the European digital society.”
The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Colin Bray, President of EuroGeographics and Hans Breemerch, President of EUROGI at Geospatial World Forum 2023.
