Setting priorities

19th United Nations Regional Cartographic Conference for Asia and the Pacific

Emphasizes the need of global reference datasets,

Global geospatial information base and framework,

And establishing best practices in institutional arrangements.

It also appears that the National Geospatial Information Authorities (NGIAs)

Are being reoriented

To look beyond national boundaries

And play a role at regional and global level.

They are also repositioning themselves

To provide geospatial information deliverables

Needed by increasingly demanding users.

With the evolving world’s geospatial ecosystems

NGIAs roles and priorities are changing.

However, the bigger challenge remains,

To make ‘their priorities’,

Of their governments‘.
