ELISE Webinar on study 'Assessment of economic opportunities and barriers related to geospatial data in the context of the Digital Single Market'


The JRC.B6 Digital Economy Unit has undertaken a study on 'Assessment of economic opportunities and barriers related to geospatial data in the context of the Digital Single Market'.

The study is identifying the barriers to the application of location information for the creation of goods and services in the public and private sector, and the opportunities arising from their removal.


The main objective of this webinar is to present to its participants the main findings and recommendations put forward by the study. The findings of the study will be presented along the following topic areas:

  • Context in which geospatial data is used;
  • Value created from the use of geospatial for product and service creation;
  • The main barriers to the use of geospatial data;
  • Future opportunities associated with the wider re-use of geospatial data.

During the webinar recommendations to enable wider re-use of geospatial data in the EU will be also presented.

The duration of the webinar shall be no more than 90 minutes. During the webinar, participants will have an opportunity to raise discussion points and questions. The agenda of the webinar is presented in the table below.
