EuroSDR is a not-for-profit organisation linking National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies with Research Institutes and Universities in Europe for the purpose of applied research in spatial data provision, management and delivery.
In the past number of years use of crowdsourcing by National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies (NMCA) has grown from being a disruptive technological idea to a mainstream source of geographic data and information.
A 1.5 day EuroSDR workshop co-organised by Ordnance Survey GB on “Geo Immersive Reality – the use of geospatial data in augmented and virtual reality technologies”.
EuroSDR Educational Service (EduServ) annually offers four two-week e-learning courses in the field of GeoInformation (GI). It is designed for knowledge transfer from the research to the production domain.

Crowdsourcing in National Mapping
16 & 17 January 2020
This workshop has 2 aims:
- Create VGI-ME which will be a conceptual ‘map’ of projects from around Europe which used crowdsourcing as a means of collecting geospatial data and information.
- Plan the design and delivery of a VGI hackaton event in the second half of 2020 which will feature the creation of new crowdsourcing applications (mobile and web) and extending/improving existing ones.
