I note, unfortunately, in the SAHIMS activities for 2008, that SAHIMS plans to develop a new newsletter.... "Africa Data Dissemination Newsletter".... rather than contribute to the already prominent and widely read SDI-Africa newsletter. It's a pity that SAHIMS isn't building upon the existing SDI-Africa initiative, which has be including news, reference material, and sources on geographic information and statistics (like no other!) since the get go!

Please find attached a synopsis of SAHIMS activities for 2008. Also
attached is the early bird announcement of the Africa Data Dissemination
workshop in Cape Town. This workshop was initially planned for October
2007 but we had to move it to 2008.
Please let me know your views about this. How can we best use this
opportunity to strengthen publication systems for statistical and
spatial data on MDG. We are also opened to suggestions on topics such as
ICT data dissemination platforms, Census mapping, Cartographic
visualization and communication of surveys and census data.
Your comments will help us fine-tune the workshop agenda and exhibition
features. We will be sharing this very soon. They will also be useful
for adjusting SAHIMS workplan for 2008.
