1Spatial welcomes the Geospatial Commission annual plan for 2019-2020.
The plan sets out the progress made in the Geospatial Commission’s first year and the direction for the year ahead, to develop the UK’s national geospatial strategy.
1Spatial fully supports the Commission’s objectives, including growing the geospatial ecosystem and sustainable exploitation of geospatial data through data improvement. As stated in the annual plan, almost all responses to the Commission’s call for evidence raised the key challenge that geospatial data is often of varying quality. This hampers the ability to achieve valuable insights using the data and the quality of any products created using it.
The UK’s geospatial data needs to be right and this means increasing the quality of data, enabling easier access to data and making geospatial data easier to use. Continued investment in our geospatial data infrastructures is critical to enabling the geospatial ecosystem to grow and achieving sustainable exploitation of data.
Specialising in Location Master Data Management with leading technology, 1Spatial supports the governance of the world’s largest geospatial databases. 1Spatial provides Location Master Data Management solutions to government, transport and utility organisations. Our clients include: Ordnance Survey Great Britain, Rural Payments Agency, Ordnance Survey Ireland, Northern Gas Networks, the US Census Bureau, Arizona Department of Transport, Northumbrian Water, the National Trust, the UK Ministry of Defence and Land Information New Zealand. 1Spatial works with organisations to improve their data by increasing the quality of geospatial data, enabling easier access to data and making data easier to use.
We look forward to working with the Commission and the wider UK geospatial ecosystem during this year.
