The Value of Spatial Information (14 March 2008)

The Value of Spatial Information - the impact of modern spatial information technologies on the Australian economy.

The spatial information industry has been confirmed as a major contributor to the Australian economy, generating revenue of $1.37 billion in 2006-07 and contributing between $6.4 and $12.6 billion to Gross Domestic Product, a new study by ACIL Tasman has revealed.

The independent study is the world's first authoritative analysis on the economic impact of spatial information and demonstrates a higher than expected industry value. It was commissioned by the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) with support from ANZLIC, Australia's Spatial Information Council. It is based on analysis of 22 sectors of the Australian economy.
