Defence Geospatial Information Working Group


The Defence Geospatial Information Working Group (DGIWG) develops and maintains a suite of digital geospatial information (DGI) standards that foster the interchange, access and use of geographic information between the defence organizations of member nations.

DGIWG operates as a consensus organization that builds its standards based on international standards and commercially available industrial specifications. It has close cooperation with ISO TC211 Geographic information/Geomatics, and other international organizations addressing related specializations of geographic information (see links).

The enterprise structure of DGIWG including its mission, business goals, development strategy, organizational structure, and method of work are given in the identified sub sections.

Participation in DGIWG is limited to the national representatives of member states. The current participating and observing member states are listed in the Member Nations page.
