Cross border Geospatial information sharing and application would play a crucial role in enabling large scale Infrastructure Development, Sustainable Development, Environment and Climate Change, Natural Resources, Disaster Management and Citizen Welfare in Asia. Cross border infrastructure projects (such as highways), monitoring of rivers that transcend across many countries (such as Mekong River), monitoring of coastal and marine environment, cross border disaster management framework and monitoring (for cyclones, floods), urban development are some of the applications where geospatial information can contribute to increased regional co-operation and knowledge transfer in Asia.
