CP024  Geographical Information User Group 2014 - 2016 Data & Information

THE NEED

Water companies have large, distributed assets and in order to manage these assets good spatially related information is required. There is a need to keep abreast of, and maximise value from developments in Geographical Information Systems and related technology.

BUSINESS BENEFITS

The key power of the Geographical Information User Group (GIUG) lies in the unique gathering of experts, every quarter, to investigate shared business problems.  Since its inception in 2000, the GIUG has provided participants with a much valued forum to:

  • Identify how to use geographic data to derive genuine business benefit.
  • Enable adoption of best practice in geographical information and related technology.
  • Cost effectively assess vendor products, through peer review.
  • Understand how industry peers are managing changes to spatial information requirements.

New to the GIUG for 2014 will be an electronic knowledge base, provided using collaborative web based software, to provide participants with relevant reviews, reports, meeting outputs and active discussion forums.
