Dear Shelley & Lesley,
thank you for explaining opportunities. This should be a great opportunity for
Seraphim Alvanides (on cc) being a junior researcher (or was, some time back –
apologies if I am wrong today) while I recently was just acting as senior
backup. I am available to continue as such a “backend”, therefore I suggest let
us await the resonance of the GeoSpatial IG chairs team to see whether what you
suggest materializes.
best regards,
PS: of course everybody from the IG membership body is cordially invited as well
to step up.
