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.

  • 2. Future Trends in Geospatial InformationManagement: the Five to Ten Year VisionIn process. Final paper to be released in 2013http://ggim.un.org/docs/meetings/Netherlands/Future%20trends%20in%20geospatial%20information%20man agement%20summary_12April.pdf
  • 3. Future Trends in Geospatial InformationManagement: the Five to Ten Year VisionUN polled:•Data Collection Experts•Academics and Major Users of Geospatial Data•State Geospatial Data Agencies•Figures from Private Sector and Volunteer GeographicInformation (VGI) Movement
  • 4. Future Uses of Geospatial Data•Geospatial data will become more ubiquitous•More geospatial data will be collected by morepassive/unwitting collectors
  • 5. Future Trends in GeospatialTechnology/Delivery•Cloud based services•Software and Service programs•More demand/delivery of 3D and 4D data
  • 6. Future Legal/Policy Developments•Intellectual Property•Privacy•National Security•Legal Liability
  • 7. Future Trends of Geospatial Creators•A transition from the "GIS Priesthood" to a widelyproliferated group of GIS creators•National Mapping Agencies continuing to transition awayfrom delivering final map products to becoming more of adata collecting and curatorship entities
  • 8. Future of the Role of the Private andVoluntary Sectors•More client-driven/bespoke geographic products•More Private sector challenging traditional State MappingAgencies, especially with respect to cross-border solutions•More open-source/voluntary Geospatial products, such asOpen Street Map
  • 9. Discussion
