Commercial imaging satellites, satellite navigation devices, mobile phones, web mapping services (WMS), geographic information systems (GIS), location based services (LBS), radio frequency identification (RFID) and Global Positioning System (GPS) - spatial and location data is being collected, used and distributed around the clock and around the world and is now critical for numerous commercial and governmental purposes .

However, laws and policies with respect to this technology on issues such as privacy, data quality, intellectual property rights and national security are confusing, inconsistent and/or unclear. The mission of the Centre for Spatial Law and Policy is to (i) help businesses world-wide understand how existing laws and policies impact the collection, use and distribution of spatial and location data today and (ii) educate lawyers and policymakers on spatial technology so that consistent and transparent national and international legal and policy frameworks will develop in the future.
