The GISWatch is one of the most timely initiatives that seeks to document the global information society language which is crucial in this digital age.
The project is very valuable and provides fantastic insight to the subjects as it tries to get first hand information from the writers from/within the countries in question.

Therefore GISWatch provides a much more authentic information.
