Geospatial Stategy: Call for evidence


(Bob Harper) #1

Very quickly as the deadline for this is this Wednesday (24 Oct)

The government is urging the UK’s geospatial sector and beyond to take part and share views on their future vision, as part of its call for evidence launched today.

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.

I was at an event organised by the UK Geospatial Commission last Monday in Belfast with Brian Cleland, and we contributed to the review as part of that session.

I’m also intending to submit a formal response - I wondered whether it would be suitable to submit a response on behalf of NIOGN to this, given our previous engagement over geospatial data?
