I am not sure if this was discussed here before, but last week I was
nominated as the new Chair of the Technical Advisory Group for the UN
OpenGIS Initiative; I was asked to attend the UN OpenGIS virtual meeting
last week, and I was welcomed into the group.
Here are the current members of the advisory group (I am copying this
from a slide presentation I was provided) :
Technical Advisory Group
GeoSHAPE/OGS: Daniel Berry
OpenGDS: Youngok Kang
OSGeo: Jeff McKenna
Geo for All: Jeroen Ticheler
GeoSDI: Lorenzo Amato
UNHQ: Guillaume Criloux
UNGSC: Francis Mugambi, Shazia Noreen, Diego Gonzalez Ferreiro
UN Missions: Amirkhan Imanov, Anandavel Kannan, Philip Hughes,
Group Chair: Jeff McKenna
I am still very new to the group so it will take me some time to adjust
and learn, but I think this should be reported here to the OSGeo UN
Committee, as I am representing OSGeo.
