EuroGeographics is the membership association and acknowledged voice of the European National Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registry Authorities. We currently bring together 60 organisations from 46 countries, delivering benefits for each regardless of the geographical, technical, political, organisational, linguistic and business parameters in which they work.
Our purpose is to further the development of the European Spatial Data Infrastructure through collaboration in the area of geographic information and the representation of the its members and their capabilities. Through EuroGeographics, members participate in policy developments, share knowledge and experience and collaborate to find solutions to common challenges.
The Association’s main activities focus on representing members’ interests; transferring knowledge, developing capacities; creating and implementing interoperability projects; and producing pan-European products based on the datasets from National Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registry Authorities. Furthermore, we are committed to promoting their products, services and expertise and ensuring that their national geoinformation is used in European Commission policy and funding decisions.
EuroGeographics was formed in 2002 by the merger of the Comitée Européen des Responsables de la Cartographie Officielle (CERCO) and a subsidiary, the Multi-purpose European Ground Related Information Network (MEGRIN). In 2011, a change in status – from a French non-profit association to an ASIBL under Belgian law – and move to Brussels consolidated our position as the European voice for geoinformation. We are registered on the EU Transparency Register and bound by its code of conduct.
