From our daily mail: Mr.Henrique (Henry) Koehler of the Munich Orientation Convention wrote about the
Munich Orientation Convention
As a german-brazilian inventor, I've developed a natural orientation system which can simplify and harmonize indoor and street signage, cartography, postal codes, navigation devices and verbal expressions all over the world.
The gigantic market gap was:
- a simple answer to the simple question “where?”
e. g. where is Bonn? where is Hermann-Ehlers-Str.? Where is 53113? Where is room 1916?
Please confirm yourself: according to
, touristic points in Manaus/Brazil are addressed with this Munich Orientation Convention. Just using the imagination power and knowing instructions like www.volksnav.com/EncontroDasAguas it is possible to deduce HERE where these points THERE are. This is not a “nice to have” but a quantum jump, a better life quality which also makes smarter and helps to reduce the signage, road accidents and panic in buildings.
Searching for "turismo" in www.volksnav.com/search within a specified area, the same attractions described on ManausOnline will be listed.
Concerning cartography, this innovation can be realized by a simple change of the location grid: from a square to a quasipolar one, see www.volksnav.com/map
According to www.watchrose.com this system allows to build natural world co-ordinates and international City Codes, in harmony with the cartography, electronics and to a numbering of road exits, bridges etc.see www.volksnav.com/Qingdao
All position codes can be converted from geographical co-ordinates, see www.volksnav.com/mobile . You’re invited to test the features of the converter with a pocketPC or smartphone with/without GPS through a download from www.volksnav.com.

Maybe the UN Volunteers Campus, the Langen Eugen will be the world's first building with natural orientation

HUNAGI provided information on GSDI L&SE Com and FP7 LAPSI project as contribution to the discussion related to UNSDI
On the second day of the 10th UNSDI Plenary Meeting, HUNAGI representative made the following intervention: "The GSDI Legal & Socio-economics Committee lead by Roger Longhorn is building up a repository on socio-economic impact analysis of SDIs elaborated anywhere on the world which might be for the interest of the UN SDI experts as well.
Similarly as Mr. Lorant Czaran addressed the licencing issue, it should be mentioned, a new FP7 project of the European Commission will be launched soon devoted to the Legal Aspects of Public Sector Information called LAPSI shortly."

"As observer, representing HUNAGI, the Hungarian Association for Geo-information and the European Organisation of Geographical Information I would like to share my opinion. The availability, accessibility and usability of spatial data is crucial for GIVAS. Taking into account the regional expertise and lessons learned is highly recommended for GIVAS in the SDI context. In case of Europe, SDI is more institutional arrangements and legislation framework. Main point is the share of geospatial data in the European case f the INSPIRE directive as it was highlighted by Prof. Mauro Salvemini, President of EUROGI during the UN Regional Cartographic Conference held in New York last August (EUROGI as leader international NGO in Europe in this field) met together with other regional representatives as PC IDEA and PCGIAP with UN HQ staff members and he will emphasize to build on lessons learned in SDI at the next regional UN conference in Bangkok next week."
I made two other interventions yesterday one related to the presentation given by John Latham of FAO asking him to summarize shortly the potentials of use of SDI/GI/EO to facilitate the fight against the poverty and hunger worldwide. The fact is the number of people suffering from hunger is reached the one billion and the trend is controversial with the UN Millenium Goals.
Other intervention emhasized to consider to taken into account the best practices gained on local to national SDI service solutions e.g. in Europe, where a project called eSDI-NETplus is underway. This project gathered over 160 subnational thematic SDIs and analysed according to an elaborated methodology under EUROGI leadership and the ranking of the best practices will be happen at the conference in Torino next month which is recommended also for UN experts to attend.

Today, the Meeting was opened by Dr. Gyula Csopaki, President of the National Office of Research and Technology. The geospatial and earth observation disciplines were represented by among others the Director general of FÖMI Dr. Szabolcs Mihály and the Secretary-general of HUNAGI. This latter explained among others three proposals: 1) to host the ISDE-8 in Hungary in 2013 in conjuction with the World Science Forum, 2)to activate Hungary's role in GEO/GEOSS and 3) to consider offering venue for one of the next GEO parallel and joint committee meetings in Budapest.
