Measuring Open Data and GIS Performance in the Public Sector: Overview of the 2019 OCI & GMI Surveys



Session Time: July 17, 2019 at 1 PM EST

On May 29th, 2019, PSD formally launched the 2019 Open Cities Index (OCI) and Geospatial Maturity Index (GMI) as a part of PSD’s Benchmarking initiative. These surveys are designed to measure the maturity of public sector organizations in their effort to develop and maintain Open Data initiatives and Geospatial Information Systems. In an effort to maximize efficiency and facilitate cross-departmental collaboration during survey completion the surveys have launched simultaneously for 2019. The latest version of the surveys have changed over previous years with an advanced focus on common trends established in previous year’s surveys.

This informational webinar will provide attendees with a history of both surveys, including their initial design and methodology, as well as a detailed explanation of the new or modified questions that have been added into this year’s surveys. Attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions of PSD’s research team regarding the survey design and gain additional insight into how best to respond to questions.
