Geospatial Maturity Assessment
What impact does geospatial maturity have on life chances, on government policy-making, on a nation’s economy? Why does it matter how geospatially mature you are?
High-quality geospatial data can now power effective decision and policy-making in government; it can support sustainable growth and deliver real benefits to a whole nation. Being able to accurately locate assets and resources and to know how they’re being used helps organisations design and focus services, and to engage and involve citizens in this process. And, as cities get smarter, changes to how these services work can be made in near real-time.
We’re seeing that governments and businesses around the world recognise they need to be geospatially-ready; fit-for-the-future. But where do you start? All countries are different so we’re working hard to turn the lessons learned over 200 plus years in Great Britain, into help to unlock geospatial potential globally. Our first step is almost always objectively to assess how mature a country is, and how mature it needs to be.
