Value of spatial information (2008)
According to a new study on the economic impact of spatial information released by Australia's Spatial Information Council (ANZLIC), the spatial information industry is a major contributor to the national economy generating revenue of A$1.37 billion in the 2006/07 financial year. This is a contribution of between $6.4 and $12.6 billion to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The study also estimated that inefficient access to data reduces the direct productivity of some sectors by between five and 15 per cent.
