Report on the GI-N2K surveys now available

One of the objectives of the GI-N2K project was to better understand the demand for and the supply of geospatial education and training in Europe. In order to analyze the match between the knowledge and competences that are required by employers and organizations in the field of geospatial information (demand side) and the knowledge and competences that are central in the current offer of GIS&T curricula, programmes and courses in Europe (supply side), two surveys were conducted as part of the WP1 activities of GI-N2K.

The report entitled ‘Integrated analysis of the demand for and supply of geospatial education and training’ discusses the results of both surveys. The report describes the situation in 2014 with regard to the demand for and the supply of education and training in the domain of GIS&T. The analysis in the report focuses on three aspects: the awareness and use of the GIS&T BoK, the GI knowledge domain reference document; the possible gap between needed competences and teaching on offer; and the incompleteness of the GIS&T BoK.
