TechUK yesterday launched the new Geospatial Data Campaign with the online event Mapping the future of the UK’s geospatial market. The event, attended by over 150 members from across the technology sector, was chaired by Sue Daley, Associate Director of Technology and Innovation at techUK. 

Speakers Included:

  • Ed Parsons, Geospatial Technologist, Google
  • Jo Shannon, Director of Technology and Design, Ordnance Survey
  • Nabil Lodey, CEO, Envitia
  • Nathan Watt, Senior Business Development Manager – Big Data and AI, BT

techUK's Geospatial Data campaign is dedicated to bringing together the UK's technology sector with the existing geospatial market to push forward the UK as a world leader in geospatial data. 

The campaign will also explore and consider the role of the technology sector in supporting the work and  goals of the UK’s Geospatial Commission and the recently published national strategy on geospatial data.  techUK will  explore how the Government’s approach to geospatial data could influence wider sector opportunities and priorities and what opportunities this could raise for the UK’s technology ecosystem and sector as a whole.

At the event, Kru Desai from the Geospatial Commission announced the launch of the new Scottish Geospatial Network Integrator. This new project, run alongside Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Government will develop new support to grow Scottish geospatial sector by boosting collaboration, knowledge sharing and signpost to potential growth opportunities.
