AGI Award Success for Scotland

AGI Award Winners 2013

AGI Award Winners 2013

A big congratulations to all of our Scottish winners in the 2013 AGI Awards, held recently at the historic Royal Geographical Society building in London. Despite the awful storms in Scotland on the day causing significant travel disruption, the event had a good turn-out. A range of the best papers from across the AGI event programme for 2013 were presented, followed by the awards and drinks reception.

The awards are an opportunity for members from across the AGI to submit examples of best practice for recognition, but also an opportunity for us as AGI members to celebrate achievements throughout the year and promote the benefits of geographic information through a range of projects.

In 2013, Scotland certainly demonstrated some fantastic examples of excellent work and are well recognised in the list of award winners:

  • Innovation & Best Practice (Private Sector): Island GIS (award supported by GiStandards)
  • INSPIRE for SME’s: Linknode – VentusAR (award supported by smeSpire)
  • AGI GeoCommunity Best Overall Paper: Iain Langlands, Glasgow City Council (award supported by Informed Solutions)
  • AGI Volunteer of the Year: Abigail Page (joint winner)

In addition, Mike Saunt of Astun Technology was awarded best paper from the AGI Scotland Showcase event. The full list of awards winners are available on the main AGI website.

Thank you to everyone who made submissions or supported the 2013 Awards. There will be some changes to the format in 2014 and we hope that even more members will consider putting their work forward.
