The UN Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (IGIF) strengthens national geospatial information management arrangements within and across the UN Member States at the institutional level and supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. This presentation will provide an overview of IGIF and its relationship with spatial data infrastructure and also some Australian example of utilising the framework.
The UN Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (IGIF) sets the context of 'why' geospatial information management needs to be strengthened and why it is a critical element of national social, economic and environmental development.
IGIF focuses on the role of geospatial information in the digital age and how that information is integral to government functions at all levels. The Overarching Strategic Framework communicates this via vision and mission statements, seven (7) underpinning principles, eight (8) goals and nine (9) strategic pathways, all of which are aligned to strategic national to global drivers. The presentation will share examples of utilising the framework from the Australian context.
