Dr. Kim has received his Ph.D degree in Urban and Regional Analysis from the Department of Geography at the State University of New York, USA. He has been working to solve spatial problems such as land use planning and management using GIS since mid-1990s. He is leading the KOPSS (Korea Planning Support System) project that has developed five models to support regional planning, land use planning, urban regeneration planning, public facility planning and landscape planning with many advanced spatial analysis methods and spatial statistics since 2010.

How to manage/control hundreds of geospatial projects in Korean government

Korean government supports hundreds of geospatial projects every year to realize a spatially-enabled government which enables officials to improve government efficiency and to provide better services to public. 51 projects by central governments and 400 projects by regional governments were carried forward in Korea in 2012. However these projects had executed separately by each division in a government without comprehensive coordination with other projects. So a government in charge of Korean spatial policy brought in a governance system to coordinate government-wide geospatial projects in 2011 (hereafter ‘geospatial governance system’). This research is to introduce the Korean geospatial governance system. First, its institutional framework will be introduced. Then, assessment framework of geospatial projects will be described. Capture of the system running will be shown. Finally, the benefits of the system which we have had so far will be presented. By assessing and monitoring geospatial projects in Korean government through running the system since 2011, it was verified that the Korean geospatial governance system contributed to improvement of interoperability among geospatial projects, reduction of budget, and utilization of geospatial projects.
