GScan - Analyzing instrument to screen municipalities on their GIS-operation and -organization


Municipalities dispose of a range of geographic information and applications to consult and (ex)change this geodata. Still, a lot of municipalities make limited use of the possibilities that arise from these (authentic) geographic datasets. Not only individual users, but also organizational factors affect how the municipal organization deals with the available geodata.

The GScan project is commissioned by FGIA (Flemish Geographical Information Agency) and entails the development of a new monitor in order to gain new insights in the municipal development with regard to the use of geodata and organizational factors that affect this use.

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/02/2012 - 30/11/2012.
