Join geospatial experts online as they set out how countries can maximise their data and analysing capabilities

The UN Statistics Division and Ordnance Survey invite you to join a series of three online high-level forum events.

The events are scheduled at weekly intervals lasting 2-3 hours, bringing together world leaders in geospatial data to discuss:

Event #1

The Geospatial Landscape, and overview of Integrated Geospatial Information Framework and Future Trends in Geospatial Information Management

26 May 2020, Tuesday
11:00 hrs UTC - Coordinated Universal Time/ (12:00 noon BST - British Summer Time)

Event #2

Integrated Geospatial Information Framework, the nine strategic pathways and country-level action plans

2 June 2020, Tuesday
11:00 hrs UTC - Coordinated Universal Time/ (12:00 noon BST - British Summer Time)

Event #3

Future Trends in Geospatial Information Management: Five to Ten-year Vision, the relevance and application to national priorities and action plans

9 June 2020, Tuesday
11:00 hrs UTC - Coordinated Universal Time/ (12:00 noon BST - British Summer Time)

Steve Blair, CEO of Ordnance Survey, says: “We are proud to be supporting the UN in hosting these three important events. The global recognition of the important role that geospatial data can play in supporting nations, economies and benefiting citizens has never been higher.

“The current COVID-19 pandemic and our ability to use location data to support governments and citizens around the world through this difficult time has magnified the importance of trusted and authoritative geospatial data. It not only shows where things happen, but it allows us to model and plan, delivering benefits beyond that of traditional maps.”

The original UN-GGIM High Level Forum was scheduled to be held earlier this year in Windsor, England, but was cancelled as the COVID-19 virus spread internationally. The seriousness of the situation, and the role geospatial data has played in reporting on the virus and planning responses to it, prompted Ordnance Survey and the United Nations to act quickly and reinstate the High Level Forum by holding it over the Internet.
