Colin Bray re-elected President of EuroGeographics

Colin Bray, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Survey Officer, Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) has been re-elected President of EuroGeographics.

Mr Bray was re-elected by the Heads of Europe’s National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities at their membership association’s 2019 General Assembly.

Members also voted Sanja Zekušić from the State Geodetic Administration, Croatia and re-elected Amalia Velasco Martín-Varés, Spanish Directorate General for Cadastre to EuroGeographics Management Board. As a result it now comprises:

President Colin Bray, Ordnance Survey Ireland

Vice President Kristian Møller, Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency

Treasurer David Henderson, Ordnance Survey, Great Britain

Andreas Hadjiraftis, Department of Lands and Surveys of Cyprus

Sylvain Latarget, National Institute of Geographic and Forest Information, France

Martin Lenk, Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy, Germany

Martin Salzmann, The Netherlands’ Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency

Amalia Velasco Martín-Varés, Spanish Directorate General for Cadastre

Sanja Zekušić, State Geodetic Administration, Croatia

Mr Bray said his focus would continue to be working with the Management Board, members and head office to ensure EuroGeographics can meet the challenges of a rapidly changing operating environment, thereby achieving its vision of a society empowered by the use of geospatial information from official national sources.

He added: “EuroGeographics and its members have a crucial role in ensuring that Europe has access to authoritative, standards based, intelligence–rich, sustainable pan-European geospatial reference data.”

“As members of EuroGeographics, our strength lies in the ability to cooperate and to share our data, our experience and our knowledge for the wider public good. Collectively we are able to influence more widely, achieve greater visibility and develop more opportunities than we could as individual organisations. Working together we are stronger and achieve more than working apart.”

Leaders and senior representatives from 48 member organisations from 39 countries attended the annual General Assembly hosted by Ordnance Survey Great Britain with support from HM Land Registry and Registers of Scotland.

Delegates were welcomed to Manchester by Steve Blair, Chief Executive Officer, Ordnance Survey and David Henderson, Managing Director of OSGB. The agenda included speakers from DG Connect, European Space Agency, United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management initiative (UN-GGIM), the UK’s Geospatial Commission, Manchester City Council, European Environment Agency, Hexagon Geosystems, Google and the International Cartographic Society.

EuroGeographics is an international not-for-profit organisation (AISBL/ IVZW under Belgian Law. BCE registration: 833 607 112) and the membership association for the European National Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registry Authorities. It currently brings together 63 members from 46 countries.
