Jesse Norman MP, Minister of State for the Department for Transport, opened this year’s GeoPlace conference. His keynote speech set out how data and digital technology can help transform our transport system to benefit the travelling public and deliver environmental and economic goals. Mr. Norman noted that the UK is seeing a much-needed transformation in the way we travel, plan, use, pay for and operate transport. New technologies are coming together and providing opportunities for our local communities to grow and flourish. To sustain this development of transport, we must understand what society needs, where, and why, and the demand for high-quality street and addressing data is delivered by GeoPlace, through its network and operations.
