Authors: Timothy Trainor, Kaile Bower
The U.N. Global Geospatial Information Management (GGIM) initiative's goal is to set the agenda for promoting the importance of the use and development of geospatial information worldwide. Now in its third year of existence, the GGIM has documented the research priorities and challenges of managing geospatial information. This presentation will discuss the formation of this agenda and how it can be applied and leveraged in the U. S. in both academia and government.
