New study on spatial data infrastructures in digital transformation of administrations
The Joint Research Centre published a new study "The role of Spatial Data Infrastructures in the Digital Government Transformation of Public Administrations". It is a first attempt examining the role spatial data infrastructures play in digital government transformation and what could be their role in the future. The study was published under the ISA² ELISE action.
The document first develops an analytical framework for examining different aspects that can provide an explanation of the relationship between spatial data infrastructures and digital government transformation. These are notably institutional aspects, technical aspects and impact aspects.
The study then tests this framework on 29 countries (all EU countries and Norway). The aim is to assess the validity of this instrument for the data collection as well as for the wider understanding of this topic. From these analytical and data collection efforts, it emerged the strength of the relationship between spatial data infrastructures and digital government transformation and the variety of ways in which countries have understood and cultivated it.
The study also provides an attempt to link the OECD Recommendation on Digital Governments with the spatial data infrastructures and digital transformation experience of the countries in scope.
