As one of the basic building blocks for digital transformation, geospatial information is vital for linking unconnected datasets.
Whether developing an electronic land registry, creating cutting-edge positioning infrastructure, delivering public data or digitising cadastral records, geospatial providers spend a huge amount of time, effort and money on transforming their services for the benefit of government, business and citizens.
A great example of this is Denmark’s ‘data distributor’ – a one-stop channel giving access to a range of basic public data, ranging from information about individuals, businesses and real property, to geospatial data on buildings. The data distributor allows public authorities, utilities as well as private companies to centrally collect, combine and apply basic data for the benefit of Danish society. By providing the foundation for digital transformation, this will support the creation of innovative new digital solutions across the public and private sector.
