Download the Report on Public-Private Geospatial Collaborations: Exploring Potential Partnership Models
This report from the World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) guides its Members, and the industry at large, to pursue PPP models whose time has come.
This WGIC report examines PPPs’ history and context, identifies opportunities and challenges, and outlines specific business-model structures and examples of what the geospatial community is doing to implement PPPs. This report is WGIC’s first step in geospatial PPP implementation, which, hopefully, results in potential PPP business opportunities for our Members with various governments keen to take this path.
Key highlights of the report include:
Exploring twelve PPP business models of relevance to the geospatial industry;
Issuing high-level guidelines to stakeholders towards developing a good PPP;
Presenting seven geospatial PPP use-cases adopted from the U.S. National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC) work that also showcases the work of WGIC Members, including, Esri, TomTom, and Vexcel Imaging; and
Articulating recommendations and next steps related to PPPs by WGIC.
