Geospatial IG


Group details

Case Statement: 
IG Established

The Geospatial Interest Group is a domain oriented interest group to coordinate and build synergies on topics related to geospatial data. Though there has been lot of   developments and advances in geo data collection through mobile communications, sensor platforms, spatial search, and pervasive computing but still, the inter-disciplinary research needed to transform raw data into useful intelligence, to improve the planet's environmental, economic and societal well being, remains constrained by a range of barriers - disciplinary, organisational, historical, and a non-existent or non-rigorous approach to quantifying uncertainty in collected datasets.

Hi all, I also think that although it is very useful to have conference
calls between meetings, the WG has to have F2F meetings at the RDA meetings
as well. It really isn't an RDA WG otherwise. The option, which may take
some time, is to raise some funds for the activity. But the larger question
appears to be chair(s) of the IG itself, and then also the formation of one
or more WGs.

Thanks Suchith
I think that this information could be relevant for everybody. Let us see if others show them up and in case we can discuss about it.
Have a good weekend!

R: [rda-geospatial-ig] Geospatial IG - champions needed for taking forward

Dear Suchith
I write you privately to have more pieces of information. A young researcher working with me can cover considering his talent and enthusiasm, this role. But I know that there are at least two events every year and registration and travel cost can be a problem. Are there special conditions oe support for people involved in leading the groups?
This is very crucial for his involvement, as he doesn't have funds for attending events...
Many thanks and best regards!
