Demand-driven improvement of government geodata

Demand-driven improvement of government geodata is a topic that is high on the wish-list in the geodata community. With the significant increase in use of government geodata for new purposes caused by open access, high quality data is a necessity. Dataset authorities do their best to improve data quality within the limits of resources available …

Demand-driven improvement of spatio-legal data – follow-up and elaboration

A model for demand-driven quality improvement of authoritative government geodata based on the concepts of VGI (volunteered geographic information), digital platforms and ecosystems, and SDI (spatial data infrastructure) is feasible (find a brief presentation of the model here: . In this article in the Danish periodical for Land Surveyors (Landinspektøren) the three geo-business professionals …

Demand-driven improvement of spatio-legal data

Data from government registers is increasingly being used digitally. Data is often used for purposes it was not originally intended, and this challenges data quality. Tightly linked to government business, land surveyors work as authorized private players with geodata that is used or created in an environment based on legislation – the so-called ‘spatio-legal data’. …


Spatial Data Infrastructure

Digitization can streamline processes and bring government closer to citizens and businesses.

The goal of digital government is to make the public sector more efficient, collaborative, user-driven, and better able to respond to the changing needs and expectations of citizens and businesses.

Digital government is data-driven. Good and reliable data is crucial for making informed and transparent decisions.

Spatial data is essential in the data-driven digital society. Spatial analysis based on geographical location of objects can unveil insight not otherwise possible, and a map is a superior way to communicate geo-related information.

Spatial data comes from many sources and is used within many domains. An efficient use of resources requires that spatial data is stored, made available and maintained at the most appropriate level and that it is possible to combine spatial data from different sources and share them between several users and applications.

The framework that supports this is called spatial data infrastructure (SDI).

SDI and digital transformation are closely connected. SDI encompasses digital platforms bringing end-users, dataset authorities, application suppliers and data maintainers together in multi-sided networks, and SDI fits in as part of the ecosystem of many digital platforms.

Working successfully on developing SDI requires advances in different areas in parallel: organisation, data, technology, standards and the people involved, advances that must be carefully coordinated and balanced in order to achieve the desired outcome.

geoadvice holds expertise and experience in how to develop SDI with focus on improved utilization of spatial information, with existing structures and assets as a valuable starting point, and with collaboration between public and private stakeholders as an important means for success.
