AGI Overview
Overview

Several stakeholders of the Indian geospatial industry have been making efforts since the late 1980s to come together as a united body. However, it is not until now that leading companies in the country have been able to join hands to set up this association. The major objectives of the association will be to identify and address common concerns and interests of Indian geospatial industry, raise societal awareness about importance and usage of geospatial technologies, ensure conducive policy environment, represent the Indian geospatial industry at international platforms, facilitate interactions and discussions among various stakeholders of the Indian geospatial industry and last but not least, develop and design common minimum standards and ethics to be followed while conducting business. Through this association, the Indian geospatial industry will get a unique platform to promote the technology to not only the government, but the user segment too. It will organize events and other activities that will aim at encouraging usage of this technology in India. This body will also act as a sounding board that will assimilate feedback from the users in order to develop more user-friendly technology.
