Government launch call for evidence to be geospatial world leader

The government is urging the UK’s geospatial sector and beyond to take part and share views on their future vision, as part of its call for evidence, which was launched recently.

The Member companies that make up the British Association of Remote Sensing Companies are a source of unrivalled expertise in the commercial application of remote sensing data, technology and services.

The Government needs your help.

The Call for Evidence Document (click to download) contains a series of questions for respondents and, in recognition as to the importance of Earth Observation includes this Question 6:

How should the Commission be looking to develop the UK’s capability in Earth Observation data, both technologically and to support an effective market?

This is our chance to influence how the UK Government addresses our industry in the future and to make our opinions known.

I encourage everyone to download the document and ensure that replies are returned before the deadline – all details can be found on the Gov.UK Website

Regards, Alistair
