What Do We Do?
We sponsor conferences biennially
in different Asian hosting countries. These events provide an opportunity
for participants to interact with fellow professionals in their
field, to hear presentations on the latest developments in GIS,
to view state of the art GIS applications, and visit with commercial
exhibitors. In addition to conference sessions, full-day workshops
are offered in conjunction with these conferences which offer an
opportunity to examine specific issues in an in-depth manner.
We publish a newsletter and a membership directory.
The newsletter, which is published once a year, includes in-depth
papers on a wide variety of topics, short articles about the activities
of the association and other news pertinent to members. In addition,
AGISA offers every member an annual membership directory in order
for easy connection among our members.
We provide a platform to allow members to upload
their lastest research results or products in the SHOWCASE area.
With the webmaster's authorization, you can upload relevant files
to the server to popularize your products or exchange ideas with
What Are Our Plans for the Future?
We have organized a number of committees to expand
our services to members. Among our goals is to increase opportunities
for students looking to enter the GIS world, to enhance our communications
efforts with the addition of a web site, and to expand our membership
through an aggressive recruitment effort. Committees have been organized
to implement these goals. New ideas are always welcome.
