UNIGIS is affiliated with most prominent GIScience and Technology partners.

As a member of the UNIGIS community you are able to benefit from our relations with international associations, consortia and organisations whose activities focus on better understanding of GIScience and Technology, further development in its highly specialized areas, education and information exchange, and its promotion in society.


The mission of AGILE is to promote academic teaching and research on Geographic Information Science by representing the interests of those involved in GI-teaching and research at the national and the European level, and the continuation and extension of existing networking activities.

The International Federation of Surveyors is an international, non-government organisation whose purpose is to support international collaboration for the progress of surveying in all fields and applications.

The GSDI Association is an inclusive organization of organizations, agencies, firms, and individuals from around the world. The purpose of the organization is to promote international cooperation and collaboration in support of local, national and international spatial data infrastructure developments.

The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is a member-led nonprofit professional association and leading advocate for anyone using geospatial technology to help operate, maintain, and protect the infrastructure, which includes organizations such as utilities, telecommunication companies, and the public sector.

In short, the mission of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) is to promote the disciplines and professions of cartography and GIScience in an international context. To achieve their aims, the ICA works with national and international governmental and commercial bodies, and with other international scientific societies.

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. is an international industry consortium of companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface specifications. OpenGIS® Specifications support interoperable solutions that “geo-enable” the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT.

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster global adoption of open geospatial technology by being an inclusive software foundation devoted to an open philosophy and participatory community driven development.

The University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS) is a non-profit organization that creates and supports communities of practice for GIScience research, education, and policy endeavors in higher education and with allied institutions. We aim to be the professional hub for the academic GIS community.

Media Partners
