Bart Rosseau: No Digital without Geo

The Flemish digital strategy is being executed by the Digital Flanders Agency. One of the key foundations is the Base map of flanders, the base registries, and how interoperable data is being published for a wide variety of users. What will the challenges be in the coming years are becoming apparent, how long the solutions will stand with the fast pace of AI’s evolution is another matter.
