B. Objectives

    The overall objective of the UNGGIM Working Group on National Institutional Arrangements (UN-GGIM Working Group on NIA) is the identification of best practices, sets of institutional models and legal frameworks for national geospatial information management and interoperability between different systems and institutions responsible for its management, while ensuring uniformity and standardization. The institutional models should provide Governments with options on how best to create national geospatial entities.
