Global Map -as a base of utilization of Global Earth Observation Data- Secretary International Steering Committee for Global Mapping May, 2004
iscgm.org What is Global Map Digital geographic dataset of Global coverage Consistent specifications Worldwide open distribution Expected application: Analyses for solving global environmental problems Monitoring activities for environmental change at global level
iscgm.org Who is making Global Maps NMOs (National Mapping Organizations) are assumed to make Global Maps for their countries Support scheme available for those who are difficult in making Global Maps by themselves Global Maps are open to public through the Web www.iscgm.org International Steering Committee for Global Mapping (ISCGM) 20 members incl. Heads of 17 Chair Prof. D.R.F Taylor Carlton Univ., Canada Secretariat: Geographical Survey Institute (GSI), Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT), Government of Japan
iscgm.org History of Global Mapping 1992 UNCED Adoption of Agenda 21 Global Mapping Concept proposed by Japanese Government 1996 Establishment of International Steering Committee 1997 Rio+5(UN General Assembly Special Session) necessity of Global Mapping included in the adopted Programme for the further implementation of Agenda 21 2000 Release of Global Maps through the Internet 2002 WSSD Adopted Plan of Implementation called for initiatives and partnerships for global mapping 2007 Whole land of the Earth to be covered by Global Maps
iscgm.org Implementation Plan of WSSD 132. Promote the development and wider use of earth observation technologies, including satellite remote sensing, global mapping and geographic information systems, to collect quality data on environmental impacts, land use and land-use changes, including through urgent actions at all levels to: (a) Strengthen cooperation and coordination among global observing systems and research programmes for integrated global observations, taking into account the need for building capacity and sharing of data from ground-based observations, satellite remote sensing and other sources among all countries; (b) Develop information systems that make the sharing of valuable data possible, including the active exchange of Earth observation data; (c) Encourage initiatives and partnerships for global mapping.
iscgm.org Implementation Plan of WSSD 133. Support countries, particularly developing countries, in their national efforts to: (a) Collect data that are accurate, long-term, consistent and reliable; (b) Use satellite and remote-sensing technologies for data collection and further improvement of ground-based observations; (c) Access, explore and use geographic information by utilizing the technologies of satellite remote sensing, satellite global positioning, mapping and geographic information systems.
iscgm.org Current Status of Global Mapping 132 countries and regions participate 83% of the global land area coverage) 18 countries 13% of the global land area coverage already released Global Maps 2000 Japan, Lao P. D. R., Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, 2001 Australia, Bangladesh, Colombia, Mongolia, Philippines. 2002 Panama, Kenya 2003 Burkina Faso, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz, Mexico, Myanmar. With data for verification phase 37 countries and regions, 51% of the global land are being covered.

iscgm.org Relation between Earth Observation and GM Activities in Earth Observation Community Close relation with CEOS/WGISS from 1998 Global Mapping is registered as WSSD Partnership in which ISCGM and CEOS are involved CEOS WSSD Follow-up Module5 is Global Mapping, Land-use Monitoring and GIS Participation in GEO activities GM and EO are mutually dependent Benefits of Global Maps in Earth Observation
iscgm.org Activities of ISCGM at GEO ISCGM is Participant of GEO from GEO4 Contribution in documentation, meeting Side event at GEO4 Seminar on Global Map including presentation by JAXA Collaboration with IGOS-P on water theme Panel display
iscgm.org Benefits of Global Maps in Earth Observation Platform for Spatial Data Analysis Common Geographic Datasets to be available in each country, including Developing Countries Avoid duplicated investments in making Geographic Datasets. Integrate Physical and Socio-Economic data Global Maps link physical data with socio- economic data, leading to value-added application of earth observations.
iscgm.org Benefits of Global Maps in Earth Observation Global Map (as platform data for GIS Analyses) Satellite data(soil, water quality, etc.) Ground observation (climate etc.) Physical Data Statistics (economy, population) Non statistical Information Socio-Economic data
iscgm.org Future of Global Map and EO GM Future : Completion of data development by 2007 (Target set in the document of WSSD Partnership) Update approximately every 5 years Base of integration for EO data CEOS/WIGSS is critical partner of GM to attain goals described above Thank you !
iscgm.org JAXA is planning… All ISCGM data to put on JAXA WMS, WFS server or other volunteers as base map for many use cases. It could be CEOS/WGISS and ISCGM collaboration!!
