How might the growth in innovative uses of location data impact public attitudes on the responsible use of location data, for example population movement data?

Background

Our key focus areas, detailed in our critical policy issues and questions below, are as follows:
• How emerging and developing technologies are likely to impact the future UK geospatial ecosystem, and how best to track its adoption and use in the economy.

• Further developing our understanding and methodology for valuing location data, applications and services to the economy and society.

• Building confidence in the geospatial ecosystem – including understanding changing public attitudes and growing the future pipeline of geospatial skills.
