Realising the value: Understanding open and value-added spatial data

Tapping into the new world of big data opens up the prospect of incredible new business opportunities and better service delivery as well as driving efficiency, productivity, innovation and growth. Within this world, place and location data has been likened to connective tissue: data that is essential to a well-functioning digital ecosystem. Once data has a location − usually a longitude/latitude value − it can be mapped and linked to realise the value of an endless array of data.

In this paper, the AIIA’s Geospatial Special Interest Group is seeking to raise awareness of this critical information infrastructure.
