Welcome to the ANA

“Welcome aboard! Let’s take the challenge of working together to reach the objectives of UN-GGIM.” – President Rosario Casanova

The Academic Network Americas (ANA) is a formal body constituted as part of the United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management: Americas (UN-GGIM: Americas). We are the strategic knowledge, research and training arm of it.

Our main aim is to promote and strengthen close collaboration between universities (and also academic institutions, research centers) and their national geospatial counterparts for the Americas. We encourage you to become a member of the ANA.

The primary purpose of the UN-GGIM Academic Network Americas (ANA) is to academically support the aims and objectives of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) in the Americas region.

We facilitate access to research and education for UN-GGIM by producing knowledge in the region’s main languages (Spanish, French among others).

Academic Network Americas is a subsidiary of the UN-GGIM World Academic Network.
