Regional Committee of United Nations on Global Geospatial Information Management for the Americas (UN-GGIM: Americas)

The idea of the Committee of Experts of UN-GGIM emerged in 2009 in informal meetings with international experts in the management of geospatial information in the framework of the 9th Cartographic Conference of the Americas. The United Nations Secretariat presented a report on the global coordination of the management of geospatial information for the approval of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC), and thus the Committee of Experts of UN -GGIM was created in the month of July 2011, with the mandate, among other tasks, of providing a platform for the development of effective strategies on how to build and strengthen national geospatial information capacity, as well as disseminating best practices and experiences of national, regional and international organizations on geospatial information related to legal instruments, management models and technical standards.
