The NZ Marine Geospatial Information Working Group (NZ MGI-WG) was established in February 2019.

It was set up to facilitate national collaboration to grow the value of marine geospatial information investments.  The NZMGI-WG is made up of over 100 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.

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.
