The quality of geodata affects the sustainable development of a company, region, and country
We clearly understand that it is virtually impossible to manage the development of a region without high-quality geodata. The first rule is: if you want to manage something, you must be able to calculate it. Visualization is also essential to making data-driven management decisions. It’s impossible to do this without visualization systems and correct geographic information systems. At present, we are actively working on the digitization of our territory. We will have a digital master plan of the southern agglomeration of Sakhalin by the end of the year — Vyacheslav Alenkov, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Sakhalin Region.
On the one hand, we see the explosive growth in the geospatial data industry and technologies, but this isn’t enough to help countries. We need to actively introduce them. All the Sustainable Development Goals can only succeed through the implementation of a spatial database — Rumyana Tonchovska, Senior Land Administration Officer-IT, Partnerships, Advocacy and Capacity Development Division, The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
When a platform with accurate and complete geospatial data appears, the opportunities for their use expand. Essentially, we often work with some kind of paper information or what ‘Uncle Vanya’ told us at the enterprise. The platform will solve this problem and make it possible to comply with international standards in transactions — Igor Korotetskiy, Partner, Head of Operational Risk and Sustainability, KPMG in the CIS.
We have one major task – to fulfil the decree of the Russian president on the construction of one billion square metres by 2030. Without those digital solutions and what [the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography] is doing now, it will be impossible — Nikita Stasishin, Deputy Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation.
