Updates about UN Open GIS Activities

Maria Antonia Brovelli
Dear All
Serena and I are working on the OSGeo Call for UN Capacity Building as presented in previous mails. We want to be ready with the first announcement at the middle of March. 
We are still discussing with an important potential sponsor for the first challenge (training material for UN Open GIS Spiral 1: GeoSHAPE Exchange and GeoSHAPE Anywhere) but we want to close it this week. In case we won't have the support, we will go ahead with the other two challenges. 
Be tuned and, in case you want to help, please send an email to this list or privately to me.
Best regards.
Maria

Re: Updates about UN Open GIS Activities

Hi all,

I am not sure if this was discussed here before, but last week I was
nominated as the new Chair of the Technical Advisory Group for the UN
OpenGIS Initiative; I was asked to attend the UN OpenGIS virtual meeting
last week, and I was welcomed into the group.

Here are the current members of the advisory group (I am copying this
from a slide presentation I was provided) :

Technical Advisory Group
------------------------

GeoSHAPE/OGS: Daniel Berry
OpenGDS: Youngok Kang
OSGeo: Jeff McKenna
Geo for All: Jeroen Ticheler
GeoSDI: Lorenzo Amato
UNHQ: Guillaume Criloux
UNGSC: Francis Mugambi, Shazia Noreen, Diego Gonzalez Ferreiro
UN Missions: Amirkhan Imanov, Anandavel Kannan, Philip Hughes,
Group Chair: Jeff McKenna


I am still very new to the group so it will take me some time to adjust
and learn, but I think this should be reported here to the OSGeo UN
Committee, as I am representing OSGeo.

Thanks,

-jeff
