The report titled ‘Spatial Information in the New Zealand Economy: Realising Productivity Gains’ was commissioned by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and led by ACIL Tasman (now ACIL Allen) economic consultants based in Sydney, describes how spatial information is used across many sectors of New Zealand’s economy.
It quantifies the value of spatial information in the economy, estimates the gains available from removing barriers to spatial information thus making a greater contribution to productivity and describes and estimates the value of greater use of spatial information to innovation and product markets.
The use and re-use of spatial information is estimated to have added NZD 1.2 billion in productivity-related benefits to the New Zealand economy in 2008. This value is the result of increasing adoption of modern spatial information technologies over the period 1995-2008 and is equivalent to slightly more than 0.6 per cent of GDP.
