Spatial Planning Platforms are becoming increasingly important as urban populations grow and cities face a range of challenges related to sustainable development, climate change, and infrastructure management. Accordingly, the National Geospatial Platform reflects the increasing importance of geospatial data in many different fields and the need for a centralized platform to make this data more accessible and useful. A successful geospatial planning platform will improve decision-making, reduce national costs, increase accessibility for citizens and businesses, and spur innovation.
This webinar will present a prototype that the ITS Technology & Innovation Lab developed in collaboration with the WBG Urban, Disaster Risk Management, Resilience and Land (URL) team. In addition, the Assistant Deputy Director from the National Geographic Information Institute will showcase Korea's geospatial platform - tools and methods, explaining how to collect, manage and operate a geospatial platform in Korea.
