SCAR XXIX WP16: Report of the Joint Committee on Antarctic Data Management (JCADM)
Proposal to Reposition Antarctic Geographic Information within the SCAR Structure
That the Expert Group on Geographic Information (EGGI) be moved within the SCAR structure from its present position in the Geoscience Standing Scientific Group (GSSG), to become a permanent group under the aegis of the Delegates Committee on Outreach and Administration, reporting to the SCAR Executive Director. This would place it in an analogous position to the Joint Committee on Antarctic Data Management (JCADM). Member nations will be required to nominate points of contact for this group, and may nominate representatives who should be actively involved in the field.
