The annual potential economic benefit of efficient use of geodata in the digital urban planning and building process is SEK 22.6 – 42.2 billion per year for in Sweden. Most of the economic benefits analyzed in the study are time and cost savings that are distributed among all parties: municipalities, government organizations, private companies and citizens.

However, it is clear that other benefits, such as innovations and sales of new products and services, arise when private companies contribute to the success of the ecosystem for the digital urban planning and building process. It is estimated that the main realization of the benefit will begin in 2022 when all the basic data is available via the national platform and the benefit continues to grow when the platform is fully functional in 2025.

Our study is a meta-analysis of both Swedish and international studies in which the economic impacts of the use of geodata have been analysed. Results from international studies has been applied to Swedish conditions so that national statistics related to number of units and users, revenues, salaries etc. have been used. One core requirement for the existing studies that has been utilized in this study is that geodata has been an essential part of application, service or product that produces the benefits to users. Without geodata the economic benefits would not have been realised.
