Event description
A half day workshop to discuss the opportunities to develop geospatial activities in Scotland.

About this Event

The UK geospatial industry is expected to generate over £10 billion of business per annum in the UK economy with geospatial products and services offering value to most industry sectors. This opportunity is enabled by developments in, for example, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and the internet of things. It therefore offers attractive business growth opportunities for the Scottish tech sector.

The UK government has set up the Geospatial Commission (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/geospatial-commission) to assist UK organisations to exploit the business opportunities arising from the use of geospatial data. As part of this initiative it is making geospatial data held by six public sector bodies available and is offering support to UK organisation to exploit geospatial opportunities. The Scottish Government has established a working group with partners and stakeholders and the group is keen to identify how some of this support can be used to support Scottish organisations to develop and sell geospatial products and services.

This half day workshop will discuss the opportunities to develop geospatial activities in Scotland and consider options to support the companies that are developing, selling and using geospatial products and services. It will:

• Review the business opportunities arising from access to geospatial data from both public and private sector sources

• Identify potential opportunities and barriers to exploitation

• Identify attractive services for key Scottish sectors

• Identify options to support development of the Scottish geospatial cluster.

It is designed to support data / IT companies that can develop products and services based on available geospatial data and their customers.
