Welcome to the wiki for the United Nations Expert Group on the Integration of Statistical and Geospatial Information (EG-ISGI). The objectives of the EG-ISGI are:
1. To provide a forum for coordination and dialogue among representatives of both statistical and geospatial communities with a view to developing a global statistical-geospatial framework as a standard for the integration of statistical and geospatial information;
2. To propose work plans and guidelines to advance the implementation of a global statistical-geospatial framework so that there is increased information to support social, economic and environmental policy decision making, including at the sub-national level;
3. To address various technical, institutional and information policy issues related to implementation of a global statistical-geospatial framework, especially issues related to confidentiality;
4. To pursue the implementation of the statistical-geospatial framework in the 2020 Round of Censuses with the understanding it would apply to other initiatives including other censuses, such as agriculture censuses, economic censuses, etc, and global initiatives such as the Post-2015 Development Agenda and Big Data.
