Information on costs, charges and revenue for map data

The request was successful.

Dear Lands Department,

Can you provide information on the revenue your department gathers from selling and charging reproduction costs for digital maps and location data, and how many customers in a typical year use this service. Happy to get info from the most recent full year you have data for. If you direct me to any price lists or homepage outlining services that would be very useful too.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Dear Lands Department,

Many thanks for getting back to me so quickly. The attached files are very useful, but the revenue details are confusing, and I think the formatting of this message system may have misaligned it. This is the detail I received:

No. of No. of Transaction No. of Amount of
Customers Copy Revenue (HK$)
Digital Map Order 696 3,422,316
2,481 28,091
Order with
user-defined 5 5 3,525 726,553
extent

Can I clarify what these numbers mean? Is one of the figures for number of transactions, one for orders with user defined extent, and the other revenue? Which figures are for which, and what is the time period over?

This is all very useful and many thanks for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds
