The Scottish Government’s One Scotland, One Geography strategy seeks to open access to public sector spatial data holdings and enable development of new and ‘more joined up’ information services.

In support of these aims, AGI Scotland is pleased to announce its ‘One Scotland, One Geography Challenge’, a £1,000 total prize fund open competition with two categories:

- Most beneficial information service
- Most pragmatic enabling idea

Contestants will have until 22nd March 2010 in which to submit a presentation that describes either their information service proposal or enabling idea. The results of the competition will be announced at AGI Scotland’s 2010 ‘One Scotland, One Geography’ event to be staged in Glasgow 29th April 2010.

Full details on the One Scotland, One Geography Challenge can be found here:

note: It is not necessary either to live in Scotland or to be an AGI member in order to enter. Folk elsewhere, for example, could describe how eg an innovative service they have set up in Australia could be applied to Scotland.
