The Geoinformation Market is INSPIRE(d) by the EU
The geo-information business is a highly innovative market. A number of European Commission activities are giving a positive indication that access to and reuse of geodata specifically will be enhanced considerably in the future, and this will accelerate the geo-information market in Germany as well. In the future a request for public data provision will be obsolete. There will no longer be a scope of discretion "if" it is possible to obtain public data, only the question "how" will be flexible. Thus, the reuse of public data will become much easier with INSPIRE. The MICUS study "European Legislation as a Driver for German GeoBusiness" on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology shows the effects on the German economy.

New Study "The Impact of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) on the Public Sector": MICUS shows potential savings of about € 100 m. per year in the public sector
The German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) has appointed MICUS Management Consulting to examine the present and future use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) in the public sector. The study describes selected applications that are particularly promising and effective. It evaluates the effects of public demand on the satellite navigation market and details the current obstacles and barriers to an intensification of GNSS use.
With a total investment of € 267 m. by the public authorities between 2010 and 2020, in the best case scenario, market returns of approximately €1,427 bn. altogether can be achieved.
If the challenges of the GNSS service have been accepted and the importance of basic innovation of satellite-based services has been identified by the public sector, then Germany has the opportunity to gain a market-leading position for the development and production of GNSS applications and devices in the years leading up to 2020.

PSI Directive has sparked positive effects
On the 16 December 2008 the European Commission published the commissioned report on the assessment study undertaken by MICUS Consulting GmbH titled: Assessment of the Re-use of Public Sector Information (PSI) in the Geographical Information, Meteorological Information and Legal Information Sectors.
The final version of the published report is now available. Conclusion from the research is undoubtedly positive: Although the PSI Directive was not fully transposed into all Member States until 2008, it has already sparked positive effects. The re-use of PSI is increasing in all three sectors of public information, which have been individually scrutinized in this study (geographical information, meteorological information, legal and administrative information). However, the impact of the Directive varies within the sectors. Re-users complain first and foremost about pricing, transparency and licensing. In the legal sector, most of the respondents criticize the lack of information on what PSI is accessible and where to find it for re-use. Detailed and quantitative information is available in the study. The study was carried out in cooperation with VCS and Online Consultants International.

Prospects for Business Models of German Companies in the European and Global Geo-Information Market
MICUS has determined the market opportunities for companies in the international geo-information environment on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). One focus of the study is the change in the German geo-information market since 2000 and builds on the results of the former geo-information studies of 2001 and 2002. The study provides an important decision making framework for the internationalization of the geo-information market, identifies success determinants for business models of geo-portals and points out different variants for financing and sponsorship. For the first time, the market conditions of selected European and international markets are depicted online as GeoBusinessMaps at www.geobusinessmaps.org.

Macroeconomic impacts of broadband use in Germany
Broadband technologies benefit the public by giving them new, better-quality services and lower prices. The question therefore arises as to what action the government can take to promote the use of broadband access technologies and services in a way which is advantageous to the economy. Though there have already been numerous studies on the subject of broadband use, they have tended to concentrate on technological issues or specific market segments. The market potential has not yet been quantified for the economy as a whole. In this study you will find the answers.
