AGI Association for Geographic Information

Spatial Consultants is a corporate member of the AGI, the industry body that represents the interests of the geospatial industry.

Graham is Chairman of the AGI Northern Group - a regional group that supports the mission of the AGI and supports the GI community across northern England through a programme of events and regular updates; online at

The AGI exists to represent the interests of the UK's geographic information (GI) industry; a wide-ranging group of public and private sector organisations, suppliers of GI software, hardware, data and services, consultants, academics and interested individuals. The AGI, by way of its unique membership forum, brings together this previously disparate GI community to share ideas on best practice, experience and innovation, and offers access to unparalleled networking opportunities with significant business benefits.  As such it avoids partisan positions and tries to act on behalf of the community as whole. Since its inception in 1988, it has built up a significant membership base and established itself as the respected voice in GI. Online at
