‘Everything occurs somewhere and at some point in time’, from the big bang about 13.8 billion years ago to the movement of a single electron around a single atom somewhere inside our body, and everything in between.  

The obvious truism of the statement represents the fundamental basis for the importance of geospatial information and technologies such as GIS both in our daily lives, and for our future here on earth.  Location and temporal information are being created everywhere all the time, and it is our obligation to collect and manage it for the good of our societies and the environment.  This is what may reasonably be described as a heroic challenge.

On this day, 15 November 2023, EUROGI wishes to convey its best wishes to all people involved in the broadly defied geospatial community … keep up your good work.
