The connection between the geodata strategy and the government’s digitalization strategy

Table - how the geodata strategy connects with the digitalization strategy
Interim goals in the Swedish government digitalization strategy How the Geodata strategy connects to the government’s digitalization strategy
Digital competence
Everyone in Sweden shall be able to develop and use her/his digital competence.
A digital society based on competence where geodata is used to an all higher extent there is a need demands a more developed cooperation and an increased dialogue between authorities, companies and schools, universities and colleges.
Digital safety
Sweden shall have the best conditions possible for everyone to in a safe and secure way take part of, take responsibility for and trust the digital society.
This also applies to geodata. Everyone should be able to trust digital services that contain geodata. This demand secure digital system and that there is trust in both technique and data – data that is correct and current. There also must be a balance between openness and a safe and systematic management of data that are classified for national security or regulated for confidentially reasons.
Digital innovation
Sweden shall have the best conditions for developing, spreading and using digitally driven innovations.
Access to (open) geodata provides conditions for creating and spreading new or improved products and services both by new ideas and by combining different types of data in new ways. This can provide data driven innovations that will add values to persons, companies, environment and society in whole. It can also contribute to solving some of the challenges that society are facing.
Digital leadership
In Sweden relevant, purposeful and legally secure development of efficiency and quality be carried out through digitalization.
Leadership and coordination are needed in the public sector’s work with development within the geodata field. One example is the need to create a joint infrastructure where authorities can supply relevant data in an efficient way. In order to maximize the benefits with geodata in society the public sector cooperate regarding formulating laws and frameworks to ensure legal security for access and use of data. A strong and clear coordination of standards for how different systems can exchange information (interoperability)  is needed. This is also a prerequisite for developing efficiency in the public sector.
Digital infrastructure
All of Sweden should have access to an infrastructure that permits fast broadband, stabile mobile services and that supports digitalization.
Geodata shall be handled as a natural part of the public sectors joint infrastructure. Common standards and conceptual models, ensure that geodata have high accessibility, are of known quality, are machine readable and can be combined with other data.In this way access and use of geodata can contribute to that the digitalization of the public sector in Sweden can be expediated and facilitated.
