Key Findings

  • United States of America is at the forefront of the geospatial data infrastructure pillar with its NSDI in place, timely available thematic layers, Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS), Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), and an efficient geodetic infrastructure in pace.
  • Adoption of collaborative frameworks by the European Commission (EC) and the European Space Agency (ESA) in the last decade is why the European Union countries are leaders in the policy domain
  • USA, Russia, the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, China and Canada stand out for offering distinctive research and post-graduate courses
  • USA, UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Singapore, and France are able to derive maximum benefits as they are able integrate spatial technologies with IT and Engineering sectors to provide unique solutions
  • The industry in China and India continues to expand due to an exponential rise in the number of technical and scientific research centers, aero-space domain strengths and national programs for startups.
