  • It keeps the local government community up to date on legislation, regulation and data specifications.
  • Supports Scottish local government to achieve compliance.
  • Centralise the efforts associated with the improvement of spatial information management across local government -resulting in long term efficiency gains and cost savings.
  • Place an emphasis on using open source software and technology, as specified by various European and UK directives and initiatives, which will keep their running costs as low as possible.
