Defence Authority for C4ISR Joint User Other Spatial Data Infrastructures In Europe a major recent development has been the entering in force of the INSPIRE Directive in May 2007, establishing an infrastructure for spatial information in Europe to support Community environmental policies, and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment. INSPIRE is based on a number of common principles: Data should be collected only once and kept where it can be maintained most effectively. It should be possible to combine seamless spatial information from different sources across Europe and share it with many users and applications. It should be possible for information collected at one level/scale to be shared with all levels/scales; detailed for thorough investigations, general for strategic purposes. Geographic information needed for good governance at all levels should be readily and transparently available. Easy to find what geographic information is available, how it can be used to meet a particular need, and under which conditions it can be acquired and used
Defence Authority for C4ISR Joint User Other Spatial Data Infrastructures From IHO MSDIWG ToRs This Working Group (WG) is a subsidiary of the Hydrographic Services and Standards Committee (HSSC). Its work is subject to HSSC approval. Inputs from IHO MSDIWG work plan To consider the impact of the UN- GGIM initiative Establish a MSDI training syllabus for use across IHO community Provide position paper to IRCC 2014 on MSDI and its importance to IHO Conduct a review of MSDI that includes conceptual descriptions of the four sub-areas of MSDI as –E.1.1 Technical issues –E.1.2 Governance –E.1.3 Standards and specifications –E.1.4 Content (data)
Defence Authority for C4ISR Joint User Other Spatial Data Infrastructures UN Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) established the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) in July 2011 (ECOSOC resolution 2011/24) as the official UN consultative mechanism on GGIM. The main objectives of the UN Committee are to provide a forum for coordination and dialogue among Member States, and between Member States and relevant international organizations and to propose work-plans and guidelines with a view to promoting common principles, policies, methods, mechanisms and standards for the interoperability and inter-changeability of geospatial data and services.
Defence Authority for C4ISR Joint User MoD SDI Vision By 2015 Defence will treat spatial data as an enterprise resource contributing to Information Superiority and enhancing the delivery of military effect. End-users and systems will be able to store, discover, view, exploit and share spatial data in a way that is common and consistent across all operational environments and functions. A consistent approach to spatial data will support the incremental development of exploiting systems, allowing them to be adaptable to future technologies and organisational change.
