President’s blog: ICA posters on display at the United Nations Headquarters in New York

ICA posters at the UN GGIM meeting

During the sixth session of the Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM, 3–5 August 2016), the posters created by ICA’s Commissions on the Sustainable Development Goals were on exhibit in the conferences area in United Nations Headquarters in New York. During the opening session the participants were pointed to the exhibition of the ICA posters. During the first day of the conference the exhibition catalog was distributed to all participants. ICA’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals was well received.

The posters as well as the catalog for the poster exhibition can be found on icaci.org/maps-and-sustainable-development-goals.

Let’s make the world a better place with maps!

– President of the International Cartographic Association

    Congratulations to the ICA’s Commissions on your posters for the Sustainable Development Goals. It is difficult to capture in pictures, but they were prominently exhibited in the main hallway of the conference area in the United Nations Headquarters for all to see. Very high profile and crowning achievement for the International Map Year and ICA. The International Map Industry Association (IMIA)imiamaps.org was pleased to endorse ICA on their resolution for the exhibition and the International Map Year.
