“The Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association has a long partnership with GIM International, who have published our monthly GSDI Column for several years. Implementing SDI requires a wide range of skills, tools and technologies from across the geomatics industry and other government sectors. Although Europe has made great advances in the SDI arena with publication of the INSPIRE Directive and its implementing EC Regulations since 2007, there is still very much work to be done – and some very valuable lessons to be learned in overcoming the many challenges facing SDI implementers. Therefore, we are very happy to fully endorse this exciting new initiative – the GIM International Summit 2016 – and look forward to active participation in the event both as an Association and with our members from both inside Europe and globally.”
