Users: who are they? What do they want?

Herman de Groot and Ine de Visser

(Submission #253)


As many other member states, the Netherlands have a national geoportal. The functionality is currently mainly used by geo experts. They also make the data available. Each time functionality of a bigger release is discussed these fundamental questions return: who are these users? What do they want? Moreover, who are the potential users? Is something withholding them from using the national geoportal? What can we do to entice them to use it? In this presentation we can present the outcome of a user investigation and the steps we propose to make the geo data accessible to a bigger audience.
