D13.2.2 Revenue Model

The revenue model for the organizations described in this application is based on licenses and fees. All licenses and fees are estimates and may be adjusted. Licenses are fixed prices that are paid annually in return for receiving an accreditation to perform a service. Fees are also paid annually and have a variable component, either the number of geodata files stored or the number of cells licensed.

It is expected that there are other sources of revenue for all organizations (except the Sponsor) which are not described or defined anywhere in this application.

The chart below defines the licenses and fees, the definition of the license or fee, the U.S. dollar amount, who pays them, and who receives them. All licenses and fees are annual. All numbers are in U.S. dollars.
