Dear colleague,

On behalf of the Geospatial IG of the  Research Data Alliance (RDA) , i would like to invite ideas and inputs  from  research groups globally working in Geospatial Data Science for the Denver meeting on 16th Sep  for expanding future research collaborations.

We would like to expand the discussions and ideas on Open Geospatial Science - Vision 2030 [1] and how we can build synergies towards the vision of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for building a better world for all. If you wish to contribute to this session or those interested to initiate new Working Groups for the Geospatial IG please email me  by 20th Aug 2016.

The meeting objectives are to :

* Update on the Open Consultation on Open Geospatial Science - Vision 2030 [1]
* Ideas for educational programs for Geospatial Data Science (for example building synergies with CODATA-RDA School of Research Data Science [2])
* Discuss Ideas for starting new WGs (eg in Transport Data)
