Show me the Money - Identifying the Socio-economic Benefits of Investment in Geospatial Information

Date & Time

Wednesday, 21 Oct 2020
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm AEDT

The geospatial industry is dogged by its inability to express the value proposition of what they offer. Recent work in the field of geo-economics has focused on assessing socio-economic benefits in the context of use cases that align with organizational or National policy drivers. This course will focus on introducing geospatial professionals to a simple methodology for identifying and articulating economic, social and environmental benefits in terms decision makers can understand and where appropriate, estimating the return on investment in monetary terms.    

The course is delivered in two parts, the first is a self-paced e-learning module of slides plus narration, illustrated with case studies drawn from a number of domains including urban planning, flood modelling and surveying. It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. The second part, is a webinar that builds on the e-learning module through a question and answer session with a panel of specialists, allowing delegates to gain insights relevant to their challenges gaining executive-level buy-in for investment plans.
