Geographic Information Office Sustainability Report
In June 2014 a task force empanelled by the Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) recommended that a consultant-facilitated study be completed to determine business sustainability options for a proposed Geographic Information Office (GIO). The University of Georgia, supported by the Polis Center at Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis, was selected for this study.
This report represents the findings from that study and provides the requirements, options and recommendations to sustain a GIO. It also addresses business model and funding elements, identifies potential market and product offerings, discusses the anticipated customer base and addresses other financial considerations related to sustaining GIO beyond the initial two years currently funded.
