GeoGov 2019

OSi Symposium – GeoGov 2019

The Inaugural GeoGov Symposium sets out to support the implementation of the Public Service Data Strategy 2019-2023.

The Government wants Ireland to be an exemplar in the management and use of data for the benefits of all and the Public Service Data Strategy is a key step to improving the approach to data management across Government. The strategy focuses on the “how” – how Government is going to build on these initiatives.

The Symposium will particularly highlight the role that geospatial data, data analytics, trusted identifiers, open data and base registers play in supporting the implementation of the Public Sector Data Strategy 2019 – 2023.

  • The purpose of this symposium is to support the implementation of the Public Service Data Strategy 2019- 2023 and the Data Sharing and Governance Act 2019.

    The symposium will examine how strategic use of geospatial data can transform government in the information age.


  • Why you should be there


    The public service in Ireland, as in any country, has to collect, store and manage large amounts of data, in order to deliver services and develop policies. The Public Sector Strategy builds upon existing data initiatives such as the National Data Infrastructure (NDI) and the Data Sharing and Governance Bill, for the sharing and governance of data across Government.

    This whole-of-Government strategy sets out the means to do this.

    The use of Geospatial Information across such a wide range of activities that often have a ‘location’ dimension can help organisations to optimize greater efficiencies and strategic successes.

    The Symposium will discuss how using the States geospatial data hub (GeoHive), public bodies can build on the value that such data can bring to operational and strategic objectives, by providing discovery, evaluation and access to Government geospatial data.

    Employing the latest geo-data analysis processes while using and sharing your data with that of other authoritative State agencies supports the once only principle paving the way to an integrated approach to the improved use of data.

    The GeoGov symposium will explore how this can work, in theory and practice, and will demonstrate how your team can make smarter, more evidenced based decisions effectively.
