Az 'ENSZ nyílt térinformatika kezdeményezés' a GGIM 7. ülésszakának napirendjén

Ismét napirenden az UN open GIS kezdeményezés. Augusztus 4-én Prof. Maria A. Brovelli, az UN-GGIM Academic Network helyettes vezetője ismertette a kezdeményezést. Vele volt az OSGeo másik igazgatósági tagja is a koreai Sanghee Shin is.
A napi fejleményekről a www.twitter.com/unopengis oldalon tájékozódhat, a kezdeményezést egy tavaly év végi webinar anyaga foglalja össze itt:
unopengis.org/resources/pdf/UNOPENGIS-Webinar-2016-11-11.pdf
A trendek bővülését jelzi, hogy az évtized elején a GGIM kapcsán írt Ordnance Survey tanulmány a térinformatika fejlődési irányait tekintve még nem szentel fejezetet a nyílt forráskódú szoftverek témakörének:

"GSDI at the UN-GGIM Academic Network Forum
The Forum was hosted by the UN Headquarters in New York City on 31st July, 2017. Dave Lovell, President of the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association (GSDI) representing as chair also the UNGGIM Geospatial Societies took part at the Panel Discussion on Potential Strategy and Workplan/Way Forward of the Forum arranged by the UN GGIM Academic Network. The Chair of UN-GGIM Academic Network, Prof. Abbas Rajabifard, Director of the Centre of Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration at the University of Melbourne was former President of the GSDI Association. His Academic Network is the strategic knowledge, research and training arm of the UN Global Geospatial Information Management of the UN Statistical Division. He moderated the Forum’s session devoted to Sustainable Development Goals: major drivers, opportunities and challenges, while another active GSDI member Prof. Joep Crompvoets, Secretary-general of EuroSDR spoke about Good Governance for a Smart World in the session Land Tenure and Smart Future Cities. In the spatial Enablement and Requirements session the Legal and Policy Requirements were highlighted by Prof Harlan Onsrud, of University of Maine, former Executive Director of the GSDI Association.

GSDI prepares Liaison Report for the CEOS WGISS-44 Meeting
The 44th Plenary CEOS Working Group of Information Systems and Services chaired by NASA will be hosted by the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences between September 25-28, 2017. GSDI Association prepares a Liaison Report focusing on the past 6 month’s developments and actions related to Agenda 2030, capacity building, engagement of decision makers and promoting best practices in applications, where Spatial Data Infrastructures, the use of geospatial data and interoperable services enable better governance. Special emphasis will be made to the just published special issue of the Geo-spatial Information Science guest edited by Prof. John von Genderen where among others Greg Scott of UN-GGIM and former GSDI President Prof Abbas Rajabifard, Chair of the UN-GGIM Academic Network wrote an article entitled “Sustainable development and geospatial information: a strategic framework integrating global policy agenda into national geospatial capabilities”. Taking into account, The fact that the paper entitled "Earth observation in service of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" was also published in the same issue of the Geo-spatial Information Science written by Katherine Anderson, Barbara Ryan, William Sonntag, Argyro Kavvada and Lawrence Friedl of the GEO Secretariat and the EO4SDGs team, both articles are an excellent reference how Geo-spatial and EO data & services are capable to support the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda. The report will shortly mention the ESA-NASA World Wind Europa Challenge 2017 hosted by Helsinki emphasizing the innovative developments using open source virtual globe technology in apps including smart cities.

GSDI supports SDGs-related awarness raising on national level
Three members of the Hungarian Society of Surveying, Mapping and Remote Sensing MFTTT decided to launch a volunteer-based awareness campaigne in form of series of presentations on the challenges and opportunities of SDI support of the SDGs achievements on national level in order to strengthen stakeholder engagements.  Hon.Prof.. Szabolcs Mihály and Tamás Palya  (former and present national INSPIRE delegates) as well as Gabor Remetey-Fülöpp,former Secretary-general of HUNAGI and present member of GSDI Association are maintaining a steadily enhanced and updated working document adjustable for the purpose. So far the following events were used for the awareness campaign:
Day of the European Surveyors and Geoinformatics as initiated by CLGE
The Hungarian event was arranged by MFTTT and hosted by Ministry of Agriculture in Budapest on 22nd March, 2017 with the MFTTT-GSDI talk The challenges for the geospatial community driven by the UN Agenda 2030
GIS Open 2017, Óbuda University Alba Regia Technical Faculty, Székesfehérvár 11-13 April, 2017
8th Geoinformatics Conference and Exhibition Debrecen, May 25-26, 2017
XVIII th Meeting of Surveyors of the Hungarian Technical Scientific Society of Transylvania Băile Tușnad, May 18-21, 2017
31. Roving Conference of the Hungarian Society of Surveying, Mapping and Remote Sensing. Szekszárd, July 6-8
Mini-conference devoted to the 75th Anniversary of Prof. Béla Márkus. Óbuda University Alba Regia Technical Faculty, Székesfehérvár, July 11, 2017.
The presentations were delivered by Dr. Szabolcs Mihály except in the case of Debrecen, whereas Tamás Palya was the speaker.

Authentic information sources used by the GSDI member of the author team in the SDGs-related context include the GEO and CEOS WGISS plenaries, EO4SDG telecons and ISDE Symposium, where he was delegated by GSDI Association. The latest action was to establish a promising link with the Sustainable Development and Resources Research Center at the Public Service University in Budapest. We are convinced, interdisciplinary vision, strong stakeholder engagement, multi-agency partnership, interoperable geospatial data infrastructure and advanced fit for purpose capacity building are inevitable to reach effective support of the SDGs accomplishments."

Seventh Session of the Committee of Experts on UN‐GGIM UN‐GGIM Academic Network Forum
Secure Land Rights and Smart Cities ‐ Making It Work for Sustainable Development
Monday, 31 July 2017 ‐ 10:00 am ‐ 4:00 pm
Venue: Conference Room 11 (CR‐11), United Nations Headquarters, New York
Forum Partners:
• UN‐Expert Group on Land Administration and Management (UN‐EG‐LAM)
                                  • UN‐GGIM‐Private Sector Network • UN‐GGIM Geospatial Societies
Concept Note
The UN‐GGIM aims to facilitate the development of global geospatial information and to promote its use to address key global challenges. As the strategic knowledge, research, and training arm of the UN‐GGIM, the Academic Network, in close collaboration with and support of UN‐Expert Group on Land Administration and Management, UN‐GGIM Private Sector Network, and UN‐GGIM Geospatial Societies is proud to organize the UN‐GGIM Academic Network Forum on 31 July 2017 as part of the Seventh Session of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management. The Forum will discuss issues pertinent to the development, implementation, and use of land administration systems in the global context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and smart cities for all. The presentations and panel planned for this forum will highlight how the Academic Network and other UN‐GGIM entities are contributing to the development of a roadmap of solutions that overcome land tenure challenges, facilitate the development of technologies and standards, and spatial data acquisition necessary to monitor and measure land indicators for the SDGs and development of smart cities.
The Academic Network contributes to strengthening global geospatial information management and is committed to the achievement of the 17 SDGs. The development of future smart cities will require access to inclusive services, technologies, and infrastructures. The “leaving no one behind” principle of the SDGs intends to ensure that efforts towards a sustainable and smart future will develop a better future for all communities. Goals 1, 2, and 5 of the SDGs have designated targets and indicators linked to land tenure rights which signifies the fundamental role of land administration in building sustainable and smart cities for all. The UN‐GGIM 2017‐2021 Strategic Framework acknowledges the necessity of integrating geospatial information in the process of achieving the SDGs and developing future cities. Strengthening local, national, and global cooperation to foster the integration of legal and organizational frameworks including the SDGs, UN‐GGIM 2017‐2021 Strategic Framework, Sendai Framework,
“This is an open forum and all Session Attendees are invited”
and Habitat III Urban Agenda will notably impact disaster management, development of adequate policies and regulations, climate action, efficient urban planning, and good institutional governance.
As United Nations Member States work towards a sustainable future, land tenure security is one of the greatest challenges identified in the UN‐GGIM 2017‐2021 Strategic Framework that requires the comprehensive management of geospatial information and resources to ensure social inclusion, economic growth, and environmental protection. The availability of effective and efficient land administration remains a problem worldwide, especially in developing countries where mature land information systems (LIS) and formal land registration systems are not available. Therefore, spatial inclusion, secure land rights, and sustainable land use are all major challenges resulting from rapid urbanization that public and private sectors need to address in the development of future smart cities. The UN‐GGIM Academic Network recognizes the importance of promoting and sharing geospatial data and integration approaches, developing of legal and policy instruments, implementation of institutional management models, providing technical solution and standards, enhancing interoperability of systems and geospatial data, and improving access to quality and timely data. As a result, the Academic Network aims to work in the direction of resolution 2016/27 of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) by promoting the sharing of geospatial data, enhancing capacity building, and inter‐ institutional cooperation for sustainable development, disaster risk reduction, and policymaking.
Objectives of the Forum
  1. (a)  Present the current status of land tenure and land rights and discuss, research and practice in smart cities;
  2. (b)  Establish a dialogue and exchange ideas around land rights and explore the relationships between that and smart cities to address the challenges and opportunities;
  3. (c)  To identify relevant challenges and opportunities for the development of effective strategies to secure land rights and smart cities for sustainable development and build and strengthen capability concerning geospatial information and their use, particularly in developing countries;
  4. (d)  To develop a roadmap that promotes the development of policies, methods, standards and mechanisms to overcome the challenges and create a better linkage between land tenure, land rights and smart cities for all; and
  5. (e)  Develop a future work plan and research agenda to assist UN‐GGIM and member states to respond to the SDGs.
