‘X’ no longer marks the spot

Transforming the public sector using geospatial insight

‘X’ no longer marks the spot


Analysing data from a geographical perspective can help organisations paint a more detailed picture of the issues and events that affect public service delivery.

Connecting seemingly disparate data points by referencing their location can reveal the relationship between public services, businesses and citizens. The context of place is a universal language that everyone can understand, enabling organisations to cut through the noise, break down data silos and get to the root causes of the challenges they face.

In short, public sector bodies can use location data to develop geospatial insight that reshapes how decisions are made.

Key findings

This paper presents a step-by-step approach, illustrated with examples, to help public sector organisations understand how geospatial analytics can be used to derive insights that:

  1. focus of efficiency and delivery cost-savings
  2. improve service quality and effectiveness
  3. engage the public
  4. enable collaboration with other organisations.
