Mapping the Determinants of Spatial Data Sharing
With the increasing use of GIS in industrialized and developing countries, the availability of spatial data has become an issue that affects many public and private sector organizations. They are faced with the high cost and substantial effort involved in the generation of spatial data and so the sharing of this data is increasingly being seen as a way of overcoming expense and easing availability and access. But this can provide a way of using GIS effectively only if the key players involved in the use and supply of spatial data are willing to share. This book employs a theory from social psychology as an organizing framework to systematize the determinants of organizations' spatial data sharing behaviour. It develops a model which explains the likely willingness of key individuals within organizations to engage in spatial data exchanges across organizational boundaries and then tests this on a survey based in South Africa. The book concludes that, while the technical aspects are the current focus of attention in spatial data sharing initiatives, it is also vitally important to address and reduce the fears that decision-makers within organizations associate with losing control over spatial data.
