2 n SDI activities underway or planned around the globe –45+ nations planning or implementing NSDI –Regional organizations in Europe, Asia/Pacific, Americas Survey of SDI’s Around the World n Many differences, but may common themes n Survey extended to broaden responses and analyze implications responses and analyze implications m

3 Global Spatial Data Infrastructure “The policies, organizational remits, data, technologies, standards, delivery mechanisms, and financial and human resources necessary to ensure that those working at the global and regional scale are not impeded in meeting their objectives” Source: Second GSDI Conference, 1997, North Carolina USA

4 GSDI Simply Put n To encourage the growth of Spatial Data Infrastructures also capable of supporting collaboration on regional and global issues of importance

5 n Awareness and Outreach –National Strategy / Priority – Importance of SDI to key decision-making –Global Service Catalog –Exchange of proven practices n Technical n Policy n Case Studies –Financing, supporting resources Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Focus Areas

6 n Business Case Study (2000) n SDI Implementation Guide – internationally developed document to help grow globally compatible SDI’s  Geodata Development  Geodata Cataloging  Visualization, and Access  Metadata, Standards  Supporting Case Studies  Outreach and Capacity Building  Other Services Version 1.0 Online by April 2000

7 Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Focus Areas n Regional SDI Activities –Permanent Committee on Geospatial Infrastructure for Asia and the Pacific (PCGIAC) –European Umbrella Organization for Geographic Information (EUROGI) –Permanent Committee of the Americas n February 2000

8 Permanent Committee of the Americas n Permanent Committee of the Americas –Provisional Agreement signed by 21 countries on 29 February 2000 n CanadaPanamaCosta Rica n ColombiaNicaraguaBolivia n PeruMexicoChile n ArgentinaJamaicaParaguay n BrazilHondurasEcuador n VenezuelaGuatemalaUruguay n El SalvadorDominican Republic n United States –Formal Committee and Charter signed by GSDI Meeting in Bogotá 2001

9 Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Focus Areas n Technology initiatives have the potential to “leap frog” transitioning nations rapidly –Open GIS www based standards and catalog services (open geoprocessing) –ISO TC 211 metadata standards –Expansion of WWW connectivity –Increased access to low cost clients, global data n GSDI is providing the reference environment to implement compatible SDI’s

13 Forecast for 2003 n Pervasive GSDI organization developed, with extensive international representation n A GSDI Implementation Guide is maintained as key tool for national SDI development n Permanent Regional Committees for most regions of the world n Increased participation in SDI activities by UN, private sector, NGO’s, and others

14 Forecast for 2003 n Open geoprocessing technology and data standards move us to a virtual WWW SDI marketplace n Telecommunications growth in Africa, South America, & other areas increases accessibility n Financing sources increase support of infrastructure development as part of focus programs

15 Today: Global Reach On the Way Gateways Web Client Web Client Clearinghouse Sites CEONet Node FGDC Node Many ISO conformant Gateways provide Global Search and Access South Africa (NSIF), Canada (CEONet), US (FGDC Clearinghouse), Australia (Australian Data Delivery Service) Metadata is the key, without it, spatial catalogs will not work

16 Tomorrow: A Global Spatial Infrastructure Enabled Through Partnerships, Standards, Technology Businesses s Consumers s Government s Users Imagery Web-Enabled Services Map Services Catalog Services Service Registry Internet Elevation HydrographyDemographicsHealthGeodetic Control Transportation Internet Global Service Catalog Economic E-Commerce Authentication Other Metadata CrimeEnvironment Local Cadastre Urban Indicators Food Avail Forecasts Registered Local,, Regional, Data

17 Recommendations n Many of the building blocks for a UN data base exist today n Move to: –Identify assets –Inventory – Create Metadata for geospatial information holdings (cost, control, liability) –Advertise - your data and services for others to discover (Catalog) –Consistency – use proven practices and standards –Partner – agreements to share and maintain n Share when possible – don’t recreate n Interoperate when you can, don’t design
