The NZMGI Working Group was established to facilitate national collaboration and leverage opportunities to grow the value of MGI investments and benefits for all NZ.

The NZMGI-WG was established in February 2019. It is made up of over 150 members from across Government, Māori / iwi groups, Crown Research Institutes, universities, charity and community groups, and private sector companies.

The Steering Group coordinates the activities of the NZMGI-WG and oversees the development and implementation of a national marine geospatial work programme.

Work programme

The MGI work programme consists of prioritised projects, each contributing towards the goals of the working group.

The projects within the work programme are led by different members of the steering group.

Keep up to date

We created Pānui Ahumoana to increase communication with the New Zealand Marine Geospatial Information Working Group (NZMGI-WG) and the wider community. Pānui means to announce or notify in te reo and is reflective of this newsletter’s purpose. Ahumoana relates to the marine environment. We will publish Pānui Ahumoana every few months to keep the NZMGI-WG informed on relevant updates and progress of our work.
