Geo-innovation Amin Kassam & Associates Mass Markets Geomatics Implications for the public sector in the world of mass market geo-info MWF, Hyderabad, Feb 2009
Geo-innovation Amin Kassam & Associates 2 Modern society is becoming increasingly dependent on geographic data that is current, accurate & reliably (spatially) referenced GPS, desktop, Web tools and other technologies accessible to all citizens Integration of data from disparate sources and groups Standardized and accessible geo- spatial data are critical Cadastral Map Zoning and Land Use Planning Physical Infrastructure and Asset Management Emergency Response and Disaster Management Zoning and Land Use Planning Base Maps & underlying geo-spatial reference Geo-society & Geo-enablement

Geo-innovation Amin Kassam & Associates Emerging strategy for general light user and citizen access two parallel directions: – data is accessible to Google Map and Google Earth type applications – data is accessible more generally across the Web question of standards: – Will the Open Geospatial Consortium and SDI standards help provide a road map? – In practice will we need to follow a combination of de facto and de jure standards? – How will you negotiate the authoritative / non-authoritative data tension?
Geo-innovation Amin Kassam & Associates Conclusion Public agencies need to transform to citizen- facing geo-world – Policy, infrastructure, governance, standards aligned to promote data integration, mash-ups and value-added services – Fusion of geo-sector with IT, telecom, et al will drive the agenda and economies that are better geo-organized will prosper more
