The inaugural International Society for Digital Earth meeting was held May 21-22, 2006 in Beijing attended to by the President of the Chinese Academy of Science, Dr. Lu and the Chinese Minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Dr. Xu, along with 16 renowned international experts . This historic meeting marks the creation of the first sustained international governance organization supporting the Digital Earth vision.
The name of the newly formed organization is the "International Society for Digital Earth”, hereafter referred to as ISDE. ISDE is a non-political, non-governmental and not-for-profit international organization founded by the Chinese Academy of Sciences." (TF)
