Trendsetting in virtual reality vs how to cope the daily reality

Referring on the operating Térinformatika - HUNAGI cooperation, recommendation was made to use the Journal's capabilities e.g. to disseminate information and generate feedback from the users on the legislative framework developments in the EU, which will be binding for all players both in domestic and European dimension. Representative of the Hungarian GI Association mentioned, HUNAGI might be potential partner in seeking the opportunities to launch a Hungarian GIS/GI Yearbook (for 2008).
(N.B. The length of the HUNAGI newsblog posts in Hungarian language of the past 18 months reached 300 pages.
