Dear colleagues,

In the true spirit of openness after sending an open call in the community , I 
had the pleasure to inform the nomination of Dr Seraphim Alvanides as the new 
co-chair (replacing myself)  of the Geospatial IG [1] at the Geospatial IG 
meeting at RDA Berlin and it was accepted by all members present. So it is my 
great pleasure to welcome Seraphim as the new co-chair of our IG .Seraphim is 
an Associate Professor in Geographical Information Science, based at 
Northumbria University (Newcastle UK).  More details of him at [2]. I thank 
Serpahim for coming forward and I am sure he will bring new ideas for expanding 
this IG.

 The new leadership of the Geospatial IG will now be Peter 
Baumann<>, Andrea 
Perego<>, Chris 
Pettit<> and Seraphim Alvanides.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to start this IG and build ideas with 
amazing colleagues globally. I thank all colleagues for their help, support and 
kindness provided to me during my time as chair of this IG.I will keep 
providing support as ordinary member and will do my best to keep working on 
Geospatial IG ideas.

join and contribute your expertise.I request all colleagues to support our 
chairs so we can keep expanding  Geospatial Data Science ideas globally.
