Geospatial Commission, Project Management Officer
The Autumn Budget 2017 committed to establishing a new Geospatial Commission at the centre of government to pursue an ambitious national strategy for geospatial data use. The potential economic value of this data is huge and, with a budget of £80 million over the next two years, the Commission is leading on a variety of activities to realise this commitment. It will:
provide strategic oversight and direction across Whitehall and to the various public sector geospatial data bodies;
prioritise a portfolio of geospatial initiatives aimed at maximising value for the public and private sectors to drive economic growth, as well as social and environmental value;
set cross-cutting policies and data standards;
engage the private and public sectors to drive key policy outcomes; and,
aim to maintain an environment wherein geospatial data is high quality, accessible, and interoperable
This is an exciting time to join the team. We are in the process of appointing our Commissioners and planning our future programme. The successful candidates will play a key role in helping to shape how we work.
The Projects Team
The Commission is building a team to develop and deliver its portfolio of geospatial initiatives that will help unlock the economic potential of geospatial data and support a strong and sustainable sector in the UK.
This will include working to accelerate investment into geospatial based applications...
