AGI - The UK Geospatial Membership Body
The Mission of the AGI is to maximise the use of geographic information (GI) for the benefit of the citizen, good governance and commerce.
The AGI exists to represent the interests of the UK's GI industry; a wide-ranging group of public and private sector organisations, suppliers of GI software, hardware, data and services, consultants, academics and interested individuals. The AGI, by way of its unique membership forum, brings together this previously disparate GI community to share ideas on best practice, experience and innovation, and offers access to unparalleled networking opportunities with significant business benefits. As such it acts on behalf of the community as whole. Since its formal inception in 1989, it has built up a significant membership base and established itself as the respected voice in GI and is THE membership body for everyone with an interest or involvement with GI
AGI is a member of the UK Location Council, an INSPIRE Spatial Data Interest Community (SDIC) and provides logistical and expert support to the British Standard's Committee for Geographic Information (IST36), amongst its many other activities. The AGI aim to bring you the latest industry and AGI news, information about AGI's many Special Interest Groups (SIGs), Regional Groups, our busy events programme, Continuing Professional Development (CPD), plus our highly acclaimed annual AGI GeoCommunity conference, which is the largest independent geospatial event in the UK.
The official charity supported by the AGI is MapAction.
