The Danish economy faces major economics challenges that require increased productivity in both the public and private sector.
Copenhagen Economics was asked by the National Survey and Cadastre (in Danish: Kort og Matrikelstyrelsen) under the Danish Ministry of the Environment to assess the potential economic benefits of a common public geospatial infrastructure and the describe the challenges with reaping these benefits.

Several studies have shown that society can reap significant benefits from increased use of geospatial data and a common infrastructure. However, as the use of geospatial tools becomes more widespread (today most people knows of or utilizes GPS-services), the size of the benefits of an infrastructure may depend very much on its ability to be services driven thereby adapting itself to the changing needs of retail-service providers and end users.
