Launch of AGI Scotland Challenge 2020 Consultation

June 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Geographic information professionals and the wider Scottish community have the opportunity to shape Scottish Spatial Information Policy by 2020, through a consultation launched by the Association for Geographic Information in Scotland.

It is now 10 years since AGI Scotland challenged the Scottish Government to produce a Scottish GI Strategy. “One Scotland: One Geography” – ran from 2006 to 2011. The Scottish Government has not yet said whether it will prepare a second GI Strategy to build on the successes of One Scotland: One Geography, and fill in the gaps in achievement of its objectives. However, the revitalisation of the Scottish Government’s Spatial Information Board (SIB) provides an opportunity for AGI to renew its challenge to government about the future of spatial information in Scotland.

Hugh Barron, Chair of AGI Scotland, said: “This consultation is an opportunity for AGI members and the wider community to give their views on what AGI should be saying to government about the future development of spatial information in Scotland.”

The consultation is open until midnight on Wednesday 31 July 2013 and is available online. The results of the consultation will be compiled into a report by the AGI Scotland Board that will be published online in late Summer.
