Who we are

The United Nations Geospatial is comprised of geospatial professionals in the Office of Information and Communications Technology, Global Service Centre, and further offices in peace operations and their field missions. Geospatial data and services are coordinated by the Geospatial Information Section at the United Nations Secretariat headquarters in New York, and the Client Solutions Delivery Section of the Global Service Centre in Brindisi, Italy.

Together, we provide geospatial data, analysis and services for decision-making and operational support to the Security Council, the leadership of the Organization and its Secretariat services, including the United Nations Operations & Crisis Centre. The team is also augmented by geospatial experts in peace operations and their field missions, and supporting Regional Commissions and Offices Away from Headquarters.  On request basis, the UN Geospatial services also supports and coordinates activities with the geospatial solutions and services of Agencies, Funds and Programmes

The team also has Co-Secretariat responsibilities, with the Statistics Division, to the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM).
