The Association of Geographic Information Laboratories for Europe (AGILE) was established in early 1998 to promote academic teaching and research on geographic information science at the European level and to ensure the continuation of the networking activities that have emerged as a result of the EGIS Conferences and the European Science Foundation GISDATA Scientific Programmes.
