The overall objective of the UN-GGIM Working Group on Development of a Statement of Shared Principles is the preparation of a preliminary proposal for a set of shared principles on the management of geospatial information. The proposal should provide simple, but clear statements, principles, common values that would help to guide the behaviour of, and serve all national and global geospatial entities engaged in, the collection, production, management, and dissemination of geospatial information.
