JRC State of the Art Report: Leveraging the Power of Location Information and Technologies to Improve Public Services at the Local Level

Location data and technologies are a foundational component and driver of digital transformation. They can be leveraged to provide policy assessments, digital services and applications for public administrations, businesses and citizens. Location data and technology plays an important role in facilitating data integration, enabling data-driven decision making on where and why things happen and easing communication through intuitive visualisations.

However, there are persistent challenges that need to be tackled to realise the benefits of effectively using location data and technology in local and regional governments across the European Union (EU) and creating scalable and replicable high-impact solutions.

The latest report published by the Joint Research Center of the EU, provide an overview of state-of-the-art applications of location data and technology to improve public services, focused specifically on local and regional governments.

The report presents public service applications across different policy areas and present available information on the location data and technology leveraged, the stakeholders involved, the realized or expected public value gained, as well as the barriers and drivers. Particular attention is given to highlight state of the art location-enabled public services which have resulted in, or have the potential to drive, public service innovation and digital transformation.

This report is part of the broader ELISE Lot 1 Project which aims to provide knowledge and tools to help to improve the quality of public services in sub-national governments by the meaningful and innovative use of location data and technology.
