Geographic information about people and the planet is critical to making better decisions and using resources more wisely, and will be vital to achieving the new Sustainable Development Goals that countries have recently agreed on, according to a United Nations expert on the issue. "There's a recognition of the need and the benefit that can be realized from this kind of activity," said Tim Trainor of the United States, one of three co-chairs of the Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management.
