How can we better understand trends in geospatial investment internationally, including into the capture of data (such as satellite, aerial imaging and surveying programmes) and the development of geospatial applications?

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.
