The chapter acknowledges that information assets are a precious resource for government agencies and maps existing data trade patterns in the US public sector. US agencies trade in three types of information products (primary data, secondary information products, and information services) using four data trade payment mechanisms. Examples of public sector data trade outside the US are also examined. The limits and costs of the US public sector’s current bilateral data sharing arrangements are outlined. The potential of multilateral incentives-driven information sharing is shown through a case study of the Australian Public Sector Mapping Agencies (PSMA) organization.
