Economic Assessment of Spatial Data Pricing and Access

The Economic Assessment of Spatial Data Pricing and Access study has been undertaken in two stages. Stage One developed guiding principles for access to, and pricing of, fundamental data and defined four alternative pricing models. Stage Two comprised a comparative analysis of the economic benefits and costs of the alternative models. Separate reports have been produced for each of these stages, as well as a summary.

The reports aim to assist jurisdictions make informed decisions about the pricing model that suits its own circumstances. They also provide a rigorous assessment of the economic benefits of fundamental spatial datasets that can be provided to jurisdictional Departments of Treasury and Finance.
