The European Association of Aerial Surveying Industries (EAASI) has recently become a member of the Private Sector Network of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UNGGIM-PSN).
One of EAASI´s objectives is to serve as a platform for communication and cooperation to enact positive change in the aerial surveying industry. With this new partnership, the non-profit association aims to reinforce the global geospatial infrastructure, providing its specific expertise in aerial imagery.
“EAASI is delighted with this new alliance. Our members are the more significant actors in the generation of geodata from airborne platforms in Europe. Our datasets provide all users with actionable spatial intelligence for solving burning societal problems. We would like to collaborate with United Nations and private companies to share our knowledge and work together towards the achievement of the 2030 Agenda”, says Dr. Simon Musäus, President of EAASI. “The aerial surveying industry can certainly assist with monitoring key indicators of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”
“The geospatial industry is making huge strides in technology advancement, application development, and implementation across varied economic sectors. UNGGIM–PSN represents an important component of the broad geospatial ecosystem and is committed to representing and supporting sustainable development goals (SDGs) and aligning itself with the values and purpose of commonality and cohesiveness of UNGGIM”, explained Mr. Sanjay Kumar, Chair UN-GGIM PSN (CEO, Geospatial World).
