Executive Director of EuroGeographics Dave Lovell urged after the Conference and the follow-on GSDI Board Meeting to pay more attention to this situation. Promotion should be made and awareness should be raised much earlier as in the higher education. As an example, the Geography Ambassadors program under the auspices of the Royal Geographical Society was called referring to the URLs:
Mention should be made, orchestrated from Rotterdam on the same morning, HUNAGI just initiated to establish links between the 77-years old Farkasréti Primary School and the Chair of Cartography and Geoinformatics of the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) in order to share geography-related knowledge for the interested pupils. On the same day, a lecture was delivered by Dr. Előd Juhász, geologist, scientific traveller of our blue planet organised by the SASFA Board of the School's alumni (as posted on June 18 in the HUNAGI Newsblog at http://hunagi8.blogspot.com).

Two of the key issues covered at the event are: 1. supporting NATO and EU in their their GIS strategies in Europe and 2. supporting soldiers in-theatre. Most eastern European countries are working hard to ensure their efforts are in line with the western GIS infrastructure, however, there is still a long way to go. If you are interested in finding out what NATO and EU expect from the new member states and how these expectations are being fulfilled, join DGI CEE 2009 in Prague.

"GIS4EU presented its first year of results:
The Inspire procedure for developing a common data model was successfully tested for the elevation model;
The INSPIRE model for administrative unit and hydrography were tested with real datasets, providing results for the INSPIRE TWG as feedback. The procedure for data harmonising were presented and preliminary results allowed to visualise the first version of geoportal"
"Important is the synergy between TWG and EURADIN project. There is no duplication of work but to complete each other working program and experiences.
Project has more partners reflecting different national realities than TWG, which makes the project ideal for testing data specification and data model prepared by TWG."

National Ragweed Registry Information System - an eSDI-Netplus thematic SDI displayed at GINNT Expo 2009
PIR is an excellent example on operational thematic SDI, which has significant socio-economic impact providing benefit in the fields of public health, agricultural and environmental policy planning, implementation and control. HUNAGI promoted this innovative approach at the Side Meeting on Environment and Health organised by EPA at the GEO- V Plenary in Bucarest last November.
