The International Workshop on Legal and Policy Frameworks for Geospatial Information Management - Licensing of Geospatial Information, organized by the Secretariat for UN-GGIM and the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (NASG) was convened from 7-9 November 2017 in Tianjin, China. 40 senior executives and technical and legal experts of the national geospatial information authorities of 19 countries from all over the world attended the workshop.

 

This peer-to-peer learning event aimed to raise awareness, introduce and inform participants on practical approaches that participants should find helpful in their daily work. The goal was for both providers and consumers of geospatial information to be better aware and informed on how a country's legal and policy framework impacts geospatial information management.

 

The core component of this regional level peer-to-peer learning event was four modules that addressed (a) Legal and policy framework around geospatial information management; (b) Role and options on licensing in geospatial information management; (c) Key legal issues in geospatial information management; and (d) Emerging legal and policy trends that will impact geospatial information management.
