 •when should mno’s learn?
 •conclusion

 Geo-Information Processing
why?
task’s of a nmo

•capacity /
   capability to cope
   with their tasks

•timely provision
   and maintenance
   of framework
   data
Geo-Information Processing
why?
changing environment

•society
•technology
•supply to demand
•competition with new providers


Geo-Information Processing
why?
permanent concerns
                         • technical aspects
                              which products/service could be
                              created/delivered?


                         • institutional aspects
                              by whom should the services
                              created/delivered?


                         • user aspects
                              for whom should be
                              created/delivered and can it be
                              used?
Geo-Information Processing
 what?
 the context




                             mechanism   information
 data supply
                                            demand




Geo-Information Processing
what?
supply of framework data
• geodetic control data
    spatial reference system

• the digital elevation model
• fundamental topography
    used as additional geometric reference represented in
      the terrain

• administrative boundaries and postal
   codes
    essential to link socio-economic data to physical data

• official geographic names
Geo-Information Processing
what?
• individual technologies in data acquisition, data
   and systems management, visualisation

• integration of these technologies into optimal
   workflow processes with a concentration on the
   production of foundation data

• development of methods & techniques (tools) to
   facilitating access, and responsible use of data at
   affordable cost in a geospatial data infrastructure
   environment



Geo-Information Processing
what?
who demands geospatial data?

 •national governments need
  geospatial data and information to
  govern
 •local governments demand
  geospatial data
 •the private sector
 •you

 Geo-Information Processing
what?
variability in the type of demand
(magnitude of problem)


• small stand alone
   applications
     define 15 minute driving
       distance from city centre

• large institutional
   applications with continuity
   or one time project oriented
   applications
     plan rebuilding of destroyed
       neighbourhood

Geo-Information Processing
what?
work processes




Geo-Information Processing
what?
new technology




Geo-Information Processing
how?
beyond framework data
                             business & geo-ict environment
                                            and
