Every country is at a different stage of their approach to managing geospatial information. ‘Geospatial readiness’ is 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 capable their geospatial capabilities are.

What is geospatial readiness?
How important is it?
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. You need to objectively assess a country’s geospatial capabilities: how prepared it is, and how prepared it needs to become. We’ve built a tool to help you do just that.
