Keynote speech – A new Geospatial Ecosystem – Beyond the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) concept

Keynote speech – A new Geospatial Ecosystem – Beyond the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) concept

SDI concepts were first conceptualized in the late 1980s and early 1990s and were based on the notion of an infrastructure just in how railway, road or electricity infrastructures were conceived. An infrastructure on which products and services are provided or built, with governments and national mapping agencies playing a central role in its establishment, operation and maintenance. We present the key points of the EUROGI-led Beyond SDI initiative resulting vision where the entire global community interacts in a sustainable geospatial ecosystem, leveraging high-quality and reliable location-based information and powerful geo-analytics which are communicated through dynamic access at any time, in many different ways, and on a wide variety of devices.
