World Geospatial Industry Council: Leading global geospatial policy Advocacy

April 30 2021, 13:00 - 14:30 EDT

Virtual Workshop at GeoIgnite 2021: Canada's National Geospatial Conference

About the Workshop

The World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) is a not-for-profit trade association of commercial geospatial companies representing the entire geospatial ecosystem value-chain. At WGIC, Members enhance the geospatial industry's role and strengthen its contribution to the world economy and society at large. WGIC Members proactively address user communities' challenges in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, including national governments, multilateral organizations, and other industry associations.

WGIC Members drive a range of policy topics and advocacy, partnerships, and industry engagement programs. A few examples of the research studies WGIC has undertaken include — protecting personal privacy, the value of integrated GeoBIM for resilient infrastructure, Geospatial AI/ML policies and a business landscape, and new business models via Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs).

This Workshop presents to the Canadian Geospatial Community, an active global policy agenda by WGIC, with insights into our policy research work on Data Privacy, AI/ML, and PPPs.
