Digital Norway

Co-operating to Up Geo-information Use
Digital Norway is a collaboration that is playing an important role in implementation of the national spatial data infrastructure in Norway. At the root of the infrastructure is a national geoPortal enabling access to geoinformation data and services owned by producers at national, regional and local level. A sophisticated internet application has been developed to facilitate regional access for a broad range of new GIS users. Technological development is today moving rapidly from desktop GIS towards distributed GIS, leading to increased use and new users and allowing realisation of the full potential for geo-information. Recognising these areas of potential growth... (read more)

2011-2012 GSDI Small Grants Program

For close to ten years, international geospatial efforts have received support through the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association Small Grants Program. The goal of the programme is to aid GSDI member organisations in fostering partnerships, developing in-country technical capacity, improving data compatibility and access, and increasing political support for spatial data infrastructure and Earth observation applications development. The GSDI Association, the U.S. Federal Geographic Data Committee and the GISCorps of URISA are partners in this programme. Three types of awards are available: cash award up to USD2,500, SDI/GIS consulting services up to the value of USD2,500, or a combination... (read more)

IGS Workshop Celebrates 20 Years of Service

The IAG’s International GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) Service (IGS) held its biennial workshop from 23-27 June 2014 at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California, USA. The workshop programme attracted approximately 190 participants and included plenary and poster sessions along with Working-Group and special-topic splinter sessions. IGS members, users and stakeholders reported on recent developments and achievements and discussed solutions to current issues. Special sessions of multiple IGS Working Groups allowed workshop attendees the opportunity to exchange information, debate technical issues, and offer recommendations for improvements to IGS products. The central theme of the workshop was a celebration... (read more)

Coastal Approach to Open Architecture

The Coastal and Marine Resources Centre (CMRC) at University College Cork, Ireland, carries out multidisciplinary research primarily aimed at contributing to the scientific understanding of coastal and marine environments and their management. CMRC conducts basic and applied research in local, national and international projects relating to four niche areas: Marine Geomatics, Coastal Processes and Seabed Mapping, Marine Mammal and Seabird Studies and Coastal Governance. CMRC researchers come from a range of backgrounds including geography, geology, information technology and biology. Broadening Innovative Research Knowledge and information management relating to the coastal environment has been a core activity at CMRC since it... (read more)

Developing the Namibian NSDI

Integration of Location Information and Statistical Data
Namibia is establishing its National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) through the Namibia Statistics Agency (NSA). It has been a deliberate decision by the government of Namibia to marry location information with statistics in order to improve evidence-based development planning and socioeconomic intervention. The approach in Namibia is not unlike that found in Europe and globally. In the European Union, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Statistics (Eurostat) is one of the three prime movers behind the pan-European Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) programme, INSPIRE. More than 20 years ago, GIS technology was introduced in Eurostat via the Geographical Information System at the Commission... (read more)

European Data Portal Launched

The European Commission has launched a quality-assured beta version of the European Data Portal, with more than 240,000 datasets, at the European Data Forum. An international consortium, which is led by Capgemini and of which con terra is a member, is responsible for the implementation. The European Data Portal enables fast and simple searching of open data from 34 European countries and supports its systematic onward use. Open data comprises information gathered, generated or purchased by public institutions that may be used, modified and shared freely by anyone. A recently published study by Capgemini Consulting estimates the immediate market volume for... (read more)

NSDI in Cambodia

Administrative and Technical Challenges in Developing Countries
Spatial information is essential for sustainable development. In developing countries land management is often hindered by the absence of national spatial-information policy, guidelines for metadata management and co-ordination of spatial data. The author describes the situation in Cambodia.<P> Planning and land administration requires a comprehensive national spatial-data infrastructure (NSDI), including a transparent land-information system (LIS). Confidence in information is assured only if there are national standards for data collection and metadata. In Cambodia national policies or standards for application, production and management of primary and secondary spatial information are not formulated. There is in place no transparent national LIS connected... (read more)
