why spatial data infrastructure?

In today’s society, infrastructure is the basis for the construction of any segment, whether it is traffic infrastructure, utility infrastructure, business infrastructure or spatial data infrastructure. Infrastructure by definition implies technical structures and systems that support society.

The goal of establishing the Spatial Data Infrastructure is to create the prerequisites to rationalize the collection of spatial data and to standardize isolated islands of data, at all levels, so that they can be networked and used with quality. Connecting different information that is spatially defined (georeferenced), enables users to carry out complex searches and analyzes and connect phenomena in space, the prerequisites for modern management of space and spatial resources are realized.

Establishing a single framework for spatial data would reduce duplication and redundancy of data and minimize the efforts that should be invested in data collection and management. Spatial data comes from different sources and producers, each with its own requirements and needs. In order for combining data from different sources and from different producers to be possible without additional efforts, it is necessary to use standards that will serve many users and facilitate the use of data. In this way, significant savings in resources, time and money are achieved, better connectivity, a culture of sharing and cooperation, and the transparency of administration and decision-making is strengthened.
