Spatial Data Infrastructure - SDI Geoinformation/Geodata
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
  • standards
  • law
  • pricing and data distribution/data access strategy
