The Royal Geographical Society and the Association for Geographic Information (AGI) are pleased to announce a strategic alliance that will see them working closely together to advance the understanding and use of geographic information, including its use as an enabler to the world of big data.
Initially confirmed for three years, the focus of the work will be in two main areas in which the organisations have a strong shared interest. The first is in public affairs – including liaison, advice and advocacy – and will be supported by the joint appointment of a Policy Manager based at the Society. The other main aspect will be in supporting the professional development of GI practitioners, including those working towards the Society’s Chartered Geographer accreditation.
