The Post Annual Conference of the International Council of Archivists (ICA) Workshop will take place on November 25th, 2013 in Brussels.
A workshop related to the preservation of Digital Geographic Information will take place on November 25th, 2013 – directly after the Annual Conference of the International Council of Archivists (ICA) in Brussels.
Although sometimes worlds apart, cooperation of the archival and the geographic authorities has become essential with the fast electronic revolution. That is to say:
- Digital Geographic information needs be to be archived and remain accessible for the long term, although no sound methods exist yet and data now and in the past is being lost.
- Geographic information and technologies could play a pivotal role in the accessibility of archival information.
Although several initiatives have been taken recently, both burning questions remain largely unanswered today. Hence, both communities need to join forces, and a great opportunity will lay here in Brussels with the presence of archivists from all over the world, and the European headquarters of national geo-authorities and spatial research, at the very same location!
