Thu 1st Sep 2016

The AGI Foresight Report 2020 provides insights into the issues which the AGI believes will have a significant impact on the economy, environment and society by 2020.

It has been produced not for the Geographic Information (GI) community on its own, but in collaboration and understanding of the much wider community which can contribute to evolving digital world.

The AGI Foresight Report focuses on the following five themes, to observe and challenge the current role of GI -

  1. Open
  2. Big Data
  3. BIM, Asset Management and Future Cities
  4. Innovative Technologies leading to consumer services
  5. Policy and culture

Focusing on these key themes provides evidence that the GI community can, and must, play a vital role in helping the AGI to understand and maximise the benefits from these areas and address the challenges and opportunities highlighted within the 2020 Foresight Report.

The Foresight Report has been produced as a catalyst for further debate. Not for the GI community on its own, but in collaboration and understanding of the much wider community which can contribute to digital world which is continuously evolving.
