International Workshop on Integrating Geospatial and Statistical Information

Source:NASG    Time:2014-04-18 15:29:00


The United Nations Statistics Division of DESA, as the Secretariat of the Statistical Commission and UN-GGIM, and the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation of China (NASG) are jointly organizing the International Workshop on Integrating Geospatial and Statistical Information to be held from 9 to 12 June 2014 in Beijing, China.

This International Workshop will be unique in that it will be bringing together for the first time a blend of global geospatial and statistical experts from Member States. It will contribute to the global consultation, and will discuss and demonstrate the importance of geography to census activities, and to statistical information in providing the statistical geospatial framework and the structure for collecting, processing, storing, integrating, aggregating, and disseminating the data on appropriate platforms. The workshop will also provide country experiences of the benefits that national geospatial information authorities have derived from meeting the specific needs of census geography/cartography and statistical analysis, and their overall cooperation with national statistical offices.

Date: 9-12 June, 2014

Venue: Auditorium, NASG

28 Lianhuachixi Road, Haidian District, Beijing 100830, China
