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.

by Suchith Anand

Dear colleagues I have ethical query on vendor lobbying/influencing and vendor sponsorship in GIS/EO education, research, projects, publications, scientific journals, scientific conferences, training and will appreciate advice.  I served as a Program Board member for the Group on Earth Observations (2018-2020). I currently serve as an observer to the GEO Program Board representing CODATA and International Science Council.

Study to understand the scale of Racial Injustice in GIS/EO Education and Research

by Suchith Anand

Dear colleagues, I came across this article on ”Use of Proprietary Software in the Aid Sector Perpetuates Racial Injustice “ at https://ivangayton.net/2020/07/03/use-of-proprietary-software-in-the-aid...  It is disappointing to read that African colleagues are not able to participate as equals in humanitarian and development work in their own continent.
