The United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (GGIM) held its inaugural meeting in Korea in October 2011. One of the first orders of business was to poll and document the thoughts of various leaders of the geospatial world as to where they foresee the industry progressing within the next 5 to 10 years. Among the persons polled were data collection experts, academics and major geospatial users, persons associated with state and national mapping agencies, and members of the private geospatial sector. A very wide variety of insights and concerns were collected and some of the predictions for the future of geospatial information included: an increase in the availability and demand for 3D and 4D data, the collection and utilization of “passively collected” geospatial data from geospatially enabled personal electronic devices, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, and the further legal wrangling over privacy and intellectual property rights.
