The strategic aim of geomatics
is the distributed usage of spatial data in the spatial data
infrastructure [based on Voser 2007, S. 89].
This is reached by buidling up interoperable
solutions using standards and data models.
[Gubler 2003] lists the following components belonging to a spatial data infrastructure:
- basic or core spatial data
- meta data
- essential spatial services
- technical infrastructure
- education and research
- pricing and data distribution/data
