What is geospatial readiness?
Every country is at a different stage of their approach to managing geospatial information. ‘Geospatial readiness’ is a term used to describe the level of sophistication a country has in its ability to collect, manage, and exploit geospatial information to benefit its nation. A geospatial readiness assessment is a tool that can help organisations understand how mature their geospatial capabilities are.
Why does it matter how geospatially ready you are?
High-quality geospatial data powers effective decision-making and effective policymaking.
It supports sustainable growth and can deliver real benefits to nations. It’s essential a country can accurately locate assets and resources, and know how they’re being used across different services. But where do you start?
You need to objectively assess a country’s geospatial capabilities: how ready it is, and how ready it needs to be. We’ve built a tool to help you do just that.
