From 4th to 8th of May 2016, in Christchurch, New Zealand, the 5th Executive Board on the UN-GGIM-AP was held to discuss activity report of UN-GGIM-AP and the 4th UN-GGIM High-level Forum.
At the meeting of council, each of Working Groups reported the status of the activity, accepted opinion, and discussed future work direction.
At the 4th UN-GGIM-AP High-level Forum, ‘Accurate Land Management System for Effective Land Management’ was actively discussed. Also empowerment of developing countries for solving land problem was raised as an important issue. In addition, UN-GGIM-AP wants to contribute together with UN-GGIM.
NGII gave a presentation on the status of 'Research Methodology of NSDI based Land Informatization' at WG4(land management), shared the status of GGRF roadmap development, and discussed the necessity of technical standard (ISO/TC211) related to GGRF.
In the future, Korea will discuss Working Group workshop (hold together with 5th UN-GGIM-AP General Assembly) and will participate in the 6th Committee of Experts on UN-GGIM.
As decision making of international spatial information was made at UN-GGIM, not only land management WG but related technical WG should be working actively.
