Geographic Information Systems International Group
Data Center Description
Geographical Information System International Group (GISIG) was constituted in 1992 and is a sectoral non-profit making Association on Geographical Information Systems (GIS) grouping about 100 Organisations from more than 20 European countries.
They are organisations working on territorial subjects and research institutions which guarantee interdisciplinary experiences, both on GIS as technological tools and on their sectoral applications (urban and territorial planning, agriculture, transports, environment, etc.).
GISIG aims at realising the co-operation among GIS operators through the promotion and development of joint European projects (in the field of education and training, research and development, as well as regional development policies).
Such projects are mainly devoted to the technology transfer towards SMEs and Local Public Authorities, and to the exchange of experiences at European level, also promoting the international cooperation with particular emphasis towards the Central and Eastern European Countries.
