Taking place on Wednesday 16th August at 1pm (BST), the webinar, which is hosted by Clare Hadley from Ordnance Survey GB, will provide some background information regarding the UN GGIM and work undertaken to identify fundamental geospatial datasets. Clare has been one of the co-authors of the report to the UN GGIM on identifying the fundamental datasets and will be able to talk in depth about the UN GGIM and its work.

During the webinar, Claire will address a series of different questions relating to the work of the UN GGIM, including:

  • What is a fundamental geospatial dataset?
  • What are the approaches which were used to identify such datasets?
  • What datasets are on the current list?
  • How do they relate to the Sustainable Development Goals?

Clare will also provide an update on the developments from the 7th meeting of the UN GGIM Committee of Experts that will be held the week before the webinar at the UN Headquarters in New York.
