The Spatial Information Service (SIS) delivers a range of projects and initiatives that seek to make better use, and increase the value, of local authorities’ rich location and address-based data. It also provides guidance, support and representation for local authorities on many national data and technology initiatives.
Some of the recent areas that it has been working on are:
The SIS’s projects and initiatives are designed to ensure that local authorities can make the most of their key data assets, both for themselves and the wider community. This dovetails with other Improvement Service and national initiatives including MyAccount, Community Empowerment, the formation of the new Public Health Scotland body and Digital Planning.
