Free membership at IGS for low income nations

US: The GSDI Board of Directors passed a resolution that allows individuals in low and very low income nations to join the International Geospatial Society (IGS) without fees by providing specific information of value to the global community in lieu of annual cash dues. To qualify for free membership in the International Geospatial Society applicants must both be a citizen of and currently live in one of the countries classified as “poor” or “very poor” by the World Bank.

IGS is a global community of individual specialists and professionals with geospatial, spatial data infrastructure, GIS, mobile technology, mapping and related interests. The goal of the organisation is to engage and enhance communications internationally among individuals who are actively involved in promoting, developing, or advancing geospatial and affiliated concepts.
