- Supporting innovation in the geospatial sector, exploring how to secure cutting edge skills, the right access to data, and opportunities from emerging technologies for the geospatial sector itself.
- Enhancing the UK’s geospatial assets, looking at how best to align interests, avoid duplication, and instill best practice across the whole public sector.
- Driving investment and productivity in geospatial applications, asking in which wider sectors the most value lies from better exploitation and use of geospatial data, in the UK and internationally.
The call for evidence closes on 24 October 2018.
