The New Zealand Chapter of SCGIS was established in 2013 with the specific purpose of promoting and supporting the availability and use of GIS by volunteer conservation groups already operating in NZ, or about to do so. NZ SCGIS is managed and administered by NZ GIS in Conservation (or GiC), a not-for-profit organisation established in 2012.
The purpose of GiC is to:
a) Provide benefit to groups working in conservation by:
b) Doing anything else which will help GiC achieve those purposes.
