National Geospatial Strategy - call for evidence

Geospatial Commission want to hear how the use of geospatial data can support economic growth and productivity across the United Kingdom, while transforming how public services are delivered. This is crucial in helping to inform the UK’s first ever Geospatial Strategy, which the Government will launch next year.

The Commission has a remit over all public sector geospatial data, including Public Sector Mapping Agreement. We want to ensure the UK continues to be a global leader and attracts the geospatial businesses of the future by bringing together interests and approaches to provide better access to this valuable data.

Protecting and enhancing our data assets

The UK’s geospatial ecosystem is a result of decades (and in some cases, centuries) of investment and expertise. This is in terms of the underpinning geospatial infrastructure, and the creation and maintenance of the geospatial data that is built on such infrastructure. However, we must not be complacent. With a rapidly changing technological environment, where accurate and timely geospatial data underpins the digital economy, we need to ensure that we protect and enhance the UK’s core national assets.

To do this, the Commission’s Partner Bodies and other public sector organisations must, alongside their core functions, adapt to the evolving geospatial environment and support the ecosystem and market to innovate.

This regional event is your opportunity to discuss and share on how spatial data can make a real difference in tackling key government and citizen challenges. In the afternoon, suppliers for Public Sector Mapping Agreement will provide update for their products and services.
