First Southeast European Spatial Data Infrastructure

The Republic of Croatia has simplified access to countrywide geographic data through an online geoportal, a type of Web site that makes it easier for citizens, government, and private-sector users to find and access vast quantities of geographic information and related services. The geoportal has already proven its value as an essential component of the country's Organised Land Project. By making data more accessible, the average time for processing changes to land titles has dropped from a 400-day average to 37 days. The geoportal is hosted by the State Geodetic Authority (SGA) of Croatia .Dr. Željko Bačić, head of SGA,... (read more)
