    Dear Colleagues,
    As many colleagues use data as part of their work, I’d like to draw the Locus Charter to your attention. The Charter asserts that a wider, shared understanding of risks and solutions relating to uses of location data can improve standards of practice, and help protect individuals and the public interest.
    As strong advocates of Locus Charter , we would like to invite your organisations (industry, government, universities, NGOs etc) to join and support the Charter. More information at Please feel free to share this email with your senior management and request their support for Locus Charter.
    We are very much of the opinion that the Charter can improve understanding of the risk inherent in the data ecosystem, improving risk management and realising the many benefits of geospatial technologies for individuals and societies.
    If you are interested in GeoEthics , you are welcome to join the OGC GeoEthics maillist at 
    There are many recent discussions around data ethics, and the importance of ethics, that might be of interest: 
    Please feel free to read more about an initiative myself and colleague Kathryn Bailey are in the process of setting up to provide a neutral platform for discussions and priority setting in the field of data ethics and governance . Details at
    Please feel free to contact us for any information needed ***@***.*** or ***@***.***
    Looking forward to hear from you.
    Best wishes,
    Dr Suchith Anand
