Abstract. Traditional public data procurement models for geospatial data sets as basemaps are not any longer alone the spatial reference for decision processes. A fast digitalizing society requires more flexibility and speed in the information streams. Public authorities have to deal with reducing budgets and higher demand, while the industry is searching for new business models. A smart and flexible design of public-private cooperation models increases the value for all stakeholders through (a) negotiated quality levels, (b) reduced unit prices, (c) stable income to all suppliers, (d) risk reduction to the authorities. The models allow for a high flexibility on product definition and orient themselves on the demands of the public and private markets alike.
