Nations are striving for improved geospatial information management and many are planning future geospatial infrastructures using the United Nations Integrated Geospatial Information Framework. Emerging technologies and the growing digital ecosystem enable the rapidly growing geospatial ecosystem and digital user communities to generate knowledge that leads to good decisions, better services and increased social, economic and environmental value. The Geospatial Knowledge Infrastructure (GKI) supports the development of policies, strategies, action plans and collaborations to increase the value that technology and data bring to national socio-economic development.
As we move from 'Data to Knowledge' dealing with large geospatial data sets for real-time processing presents many challenges. To support the digital transition, needs IT modernization to support future geospatial infrastructure like GKI. Understanding the same we are organizing a workshop on GKI & IT Strategy for Transformation of National Geospatial Agencies.
- To understand the need of IT modernization to support Geospatial Knowledge Infrastructure.
- To understand the need of evolution of geoportals - from data provision to analytics capabilities
to knowledge dissemination
- To understand the evolving collaborations and partnerships with the private digital industry
- To support National Geospatial Agencies, gain greater value from digital transition.
