Mr. András Pásztohy, Ministerial Commissioner of MoARD emphasizes the importance of the introduction of map-based information systems in the follow-on actions. Image: HUNAGI Visuals resource, 2007
eFarmer - contribution to the main goals of Collaboration and Community Building

The Conference held at the HUNGEXPO Budapest Fair Center was chaired by Prof. István Fehér of the Szent István University (SZEI). The Opening and keynote address were delivered by András Pásztohy of MoARD, Prof. József Molnár, Rector of Szent István University, Michal Demes of FAO SEUR, Peter Wellisch, IACS project Manager of the Agricultural and Rural Development Agency (MVH), Attila Tóth, President of the International eFarmer Consortium, Johannes Keizer of FAO GILW at Rome and Tamás Bori of DG Agri of the European Commission.

On behalf FAO SEUR Michal Demes made recommendations for strategic partnership including e-Farmer Portal , ESCORENA Network and the FAO related thematic Knowledge Networks. He mentioned implicite the recently started talks with international and Hungarian communities in the field of spatial informatics, spatial data such as digital orthophotos and maps.

(See the entry spot of January 25 on this blog)
In the field of regional and national communication systems - the AgroWeb (AW) Network, he addressed issues in the V4 region (the so called Visegrád-Countries: CZ,HU,PL,SK) and emphesized the lack of sustainable personal contact and continuity and introduced the present priorities in order to support local AW portal managers and to strengthen the national coordinators in different expert fields. These territorial portals supporting knowledge sharing and cooperation in the Caucasus and Central Asia region and in the South-East-Europe region as well. This is the area which is on the priority list of the EUROGI WAG International Affairs ie. the extension towards the EU Neighbour Countries with special emphasis on the alignement of the spatial infrastuctures.

Novel, global-level inter-organisational action of HUNAGI and Térinformatika

An interesting trial addressing the spatial data management communities worldwide

Masterminded by the Editor-in-Chief of the Hungarian geospatial journal Térinformatika Dr. Szilár Szabó, a set of short questions on a specific, future related topical application of GI/GIS was circulated worldwide using HUNAGI's links with acknowledged European and Global organisations and associations yesterday. Lets' make the subject cleared after HUNAGI will approached by the first boomerang coming from any of the involved international organisation (expected soon, probably in the coming hours). The evaluation of the entries will be made by Térinformatika but as a spin-off result, also the methodological effectiveness such an inter-organisational approach will be investigated by HUNAGI taken into account all measurable aspects including geospatial distribution of the interested parties. Anyway, the first positive feedback cames from the direction of UNGIWG, which is more than promising.

Bulgarian and Romanian GI Communities, welcome to the EU!

Bulgaria and Romania joined the European Union by January 1, 2007!
Excellent chance also for the geospatial communities of the two countries to forge closer links eg. to EUROGI, the European Umbrella Organisation for Geographical Information, where working and advisory grooups (WAGs) are active in the topics data access, applications, GI users, communications and international affairs in GI. This latter (WAG IA) has the mandate to provide assistance for the EU Neighbour countries in the field geographic information by networking, co-operation and exchange of information. The EUROGI WAG IA Action Plan will be released very soon.
More on the
Similarly, the Hungarian Co-ordination Office of the United Nations Spatial Data Infrastructure initiative provides news at on the Hungarian spatial data interest community in English, which might be interesting for relevant communities of some Eastern European and Balkan countries. Consultations have been started to harmonise actions and developments in INSPIRE and UN SDI initiative. between the relevant unit of the European Commission and the United Nations GI Working Group. Countries such as The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republik, Spain and Hungary are playing active role in the process.
