  • 1. Valuing Spatial Information A review of methods and findingsAlan Smart - SydneyAndrew Coote - London22 November 2011

2. Topics Value added approach Economic welfare analysis General equilibrium analysis Valuing intangibles Slide 2 3.

Value added approach Economic contribution of Ordnance Survey in GreatBritain Oxera 1999 Allens Consulting (2008) Value added is the value of output less the cost ofinputsSlide 4 5. Oxera findings Largest contribution to GVA came from users of OS services and products 79 billion to 135 billion Around 10% to 21% of GDP of Great Britain at the time Slide 5 6. Value added approach in Australia andNew Zealand Allen Consulting Group 2010 Value added in Australia - $12.5 billion Mainly in government administration, property services, business services, construction and miningAround 1.4 % of value added in these industries Value added in New Zealand - $ 1.6 billionAround 1.4 % of value addedSimilar industries apart from miningSlide 6 7. Welfare analysis One measure of benefitPis consumer andConsumer Surplusproducer surplusS Product specific Need to know what PEconsumers areprepared to payProducer And what producers SurplusDare prepared to receiveQE QSlide 7 8. Value of WA Land Information System (WALIS) ACIL Tasman (2004) Willingness to pay survey of 12 user groups and a producersurvey to estimate producer and consumer surplus Estimate value to WA economy was $14 15 million Plus $1 million from more efficient and effective productionof data Study tested the results against a counterfactual thatrecognised some provision of data could still occur withoutWALIS but less efficiently Slide 8 9. Cambridge study of OrdnanceSurvey Data Rufus Pollock et al (Cambridge University, 2008) Estimated demand curve to assess the value servicessupplied from government trading funds And the impact on consumer surplus of changes inpricing for data Price elasticity of demand = percentage change indemand/ percentage change in price Used multipliers to estimate broader economic anddynamic impacts on the economy Slide 9 10.

ANZLIC Study PWC study for ANZLIC in 2010 used a similar methodology to addresspricing policies Change in economic welfare (consumer surplus in this case) by movingfrom cost recovery to marginal cost pricing is shown in table below Report notes that this would come at a loss in revenue to the agenciesconcerned which has consequences for custodianship of data.

Welfare analysis - issues Suitable for single product analysis Elasticities of demand vary with quantity A partial analysis that does not take into account resource transfers in theeconomy Eg - Planning and construction sector expands while legal sector contracts Multiplier techniques subject to considerable scepticism when resourcetransfers occur Welfare analysis serves as an indication of the implications of differentpricing and access models but should not be regarded as conclusive.Slide 12 13. Productivity estimates and CGEmodelling Economy wide approach Estimate direct impacts and use general equilibriummodel to translate into economy wide impacts Takes into account resource transfers within theeconomy as a result of change Direct impacts changes in productivity of labour or capital or multifactor changes in resource availability changes in income or tradeSlide 13 14.

Natural resource management Water resourcemanagement Eg CSIRO/Murray DarlingBasin sustainable yieldsproject Value of water at the margin~ $100/ML - $500/ML A 1% reduction in nationalwater consumption savesaround $37 millionSlide 22 23. Summing up Understanding economic and social value of spatial information is important for both government and industry Welfare analysis useful where single product or service involved and impact on the rest of the economy is not significant in terms ofresource allocation in the rest of the economy General equilibrium analysis useful when multiple products are involved and multiple sectors are affected. Both approaches confirm that a move from average cost pricing to marginal cost pricing for foundation data increase economic welfare But only as long as governments are prepared to fund the cost ofcustodianship More work on social and environmental benefitsSlide 23 24. Thank youSlide 24 25. POPSIS Study European union sponsored study into pricing of public sectorinformation (2011) Assessed different models of supply and charging through 21 casestudies (including meteorological and geographical information) In case of zero-cost or cost-recovery number of re-users increasedby between 1,000% and 10,000%. PSI sales revenues can remain stable or even increase after drasticprice cuts due to the growing demand. Several case study public sector providers have reported thatintensified ties with re-users that may lead to improved data qualityand process efficiency Slide 25 26.
