AGEO Dachverband

Der österreichische Dachverband für Geographische Information (AGEO) ist die fachübergreifende Vereinigung aller GI-Interessenten in Österreich und übernimmt deren Vertretung innerhalb Österreichs und in internationalen Organisationen.Die aktive Information der Öffentlichkeit über GI und Förderung von Initiativen zur technischen und methodischen Weiterentwicklung sollen Österreich mittels “best practice” zu einem starken Standort für Geoinformation machen.
The Austrian Umbrella Organization for Geographic Information (AGEO) has been constantly enlarged by new members since its foundation in 1998. Activities have been widened considerably in the fourth and fifth year of the association’s term. In 2001/2002 AGEO focussed activities in the preparation of a feasibility analysis for an Austrian metadata service and in a more intensive co-operation with other European players by applying as candidate member to EUROGI. A third column of efforts was the continuation of the annual seminars on current issues of GI for members and guests.
