Around the world there are a small number of civilian research centres in spatial sciences and geomatics that act as networks of collaboration for their partners. These research centres have now come together to form a new super collaborative network known as the Global Spatial Network (GSN).
There are a host of complex spatial and geomatic challenges that face the world, from developing truly precise and ubiquitous positioning, to provisioning high quality satellite and airborne imagery to anyone, anywhere at any time.
Empowering the researchers and connecting them with the users will expand the world's innovative capacity in this fascinating area of science. Collaborative networks are one of the key means to realise these greater benefits.
The GSN's value proposition is to:
permit our organizations to grow into new markets
allow the advantage of economies of scale through a larger base of potential partners
provide a unique insight into fulfilling the needs of our partners
give our partners access to new technologies, new R&D and education and training opportunities
add credibility to our businesses
