The GIS Readiness Survey 2014 is a follow-up to the corresponding survey that was carried out among public institutions in Denmark in 2009. The present survey thus provides an updated image of status and challenges in relation to the use of spatial information, the construction of the common infrastructure for spatial information, and the work related to the further development of the foundation for the digital administration. One of the thought-provoking trends is that INSPIRE seems to be discussed less in the organisations. On the other hand, there is no doubt that standards continue to be considered of great significance, not least in relation to metadata, data quality and data specifications, just as spatial data are clearly being communicated more and more.
