Sponsor of the AM/FM-GIS Belux association, SPACEBEL has pleasure in inviting you to their next seminar on the change of Business models and the economic evolutions for GeoInformation professionals. Several SPACEBEL representatives will be present at the event.
Whether public or private, geographical data are nowadays increasingly freely available and at no cost to the user.
However, the value of geodata has never been more important, whether it is to increase public administrations’ efficiency, to generate economic growth in the private sector or to speed up the creation of jobs and also, more generally, to contribute to social welfare in the broad sense.
The value chain is changing and new business models are emerging. Data are free and available by download and web services or through on-line applications or services, sometimes chargeable.
GeoBusiness is evolving significantly and creating new opportunities. It is important to follow the trend, considering the new geodata economy in particular.
Contents of the seminar:
- An analogy will be drawn between the above developments and changes in the software world since the arrival of Open Source.
- We will learn how traditional geographical data producers such as national mapping agencies are taking into account new profitable business models and which opportunities are being offered by COPERNICUS for geo-information professionals.
- Experts will explain these new business models and we hope to bring about a strategic reflection on available solutions for an efficient and indispensable transition of our activities.
Looking forward to meeting you on November 21st !
