Government launch call for evidence to be geospatial world leader

Posted on: 09/10/2018

The government is urging the UK’s geospatial sector and beyond to take part and share views on their future vision.

The creation of the Geospatial Commission was announced in November 2017, to maximise the value of data linked to location, which could generate £11 billion a year.

By using location data, geospatial technology is transforming services across the private and public sectors to contribute to the #SmarterGov Government campaign, which helps deliver wider economic growth and productivity. From emergency services, transport planning, and 5G networks, to housing, smarter cities and drones Рthe UK’s geospatial infrastructure has the potential to revolutionise the UK’s economy.

The call for evidence document is available here.

The closing date for responses to the call for evidence is Wednesday 24 October 2018.
