Technical committee is tasked with the review of technical specifications and standards of the Sultanate's Spatial Data Infrastructure with the objectives of ensuring the quality of data sharing, and supervising the implementation of data-sharing mechanism in the respective domains.
The second phase of the project was mainly to focus on the implementation with more emphasis on building technological infrastructure (hardware and software) and the development of NGCC working groups including formulation of a National SDI Policy--to guide implementation of the NSDI
, Capacity building and awareness, Infrastructure--Procurement of Hard/Software, networks and Site License--Enterprise License Agreement, software maintenance and support.
The results of the 2000 survey showed that all countries had engaged in discussions to determine the need for a NSDI
, but only 4 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean had established a legal authority to support the development of NSDI
's (Figure 1); these countries are Argentina, Brazil, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic.
is defined as the technologies, policies, and people necessary to promote sharing of geospatial data throughout all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the academic community.
The centerpiece of an NSDI
is called a clearinghouse.
Users can select any set of clearinghouse nodes, or all nodes, to be searched simultaneously at the NSDI
Geospatial Data Clearinghouse Gateway Site at http://130.
In addition to standards-setting work, the NSDI
plan addresses the capacity of agencies to collect and use geospatial data; it even suggests the creation of a "national spatial data clearinghouse.
Korea is ready to become a testbed for large-scale, interoperable GeoWeb services and intelligent cities with ubiquitous geospatial information services, based on widely available broadband network, numerous early adaptors, and strong demands in NSDI
developments in the government sectors.
A series of SDI-related events have occurred in Rwanda, the first being the national workshop in 2006 to kick-start the NSDI
E-Government for e-Citizens -- NSDI
as tools in good governance examples from eNorway and Norway digital.
Computer scientists at UC San Diego and Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington and Cambridge, UK collaborated on this project and the NSDI
2009 paper, "Somniloquy: Augmenting Network Interfaces to Reduce PC Energy Usage.
But, as mentioned in section 1, it is an important requirement for the realization of NSDI
as well as the GSDI.
