Identifying the Economic Value of 3D Geoinformation
The aim of the workshop was to present and discuss the results of the EuroSDR project “Identifying economic value of 3D data for National Mapping Agencies (NMAs)”. This project started in December 2015 and was carried out by the EuroSDR 3D Special Interest Group in cooperation with the company ConsultingWhere.
Summary of the project
The aim of the project was to give the 11 participating NMAs understanding in the business case of 3D data: in what applications does a 3D approach give added value?; what are the required 3D data for these applications; and, what are the costs and benefits to collect and maintain these 3D data nationwide?
Six use cases were selected for a value chain analysis. These analyses have been carried out with the main stakeholders in a workshop organised for each of them. The six selected use cases are:
a. Better Forestry Management, Finland
b. Urban Planning, Ireland
c. Asset Management, UK
d. Flood Management, France & Switzerland
e. Security and Safety, Belgium
f. 3D Cadastre/ 3D Valuation, Netherlands
In a follow-up step, two of these use cases were selected for further study, i.e. to quantify the benefits and costs for the 3D geoinformation value chain. The selected use cases are “Flood Management” and “Urban Planning”.
During the workshop, the value chain of the six use cases were presented in detail (first day) and the cost/benefit analysis for the two selected use cases were discussed (Friday). Finally, the main conclusions about the business case of 3D data for NMAs were discussed in a plenary closing session.
