This paper examines the role of Spatial Data Infrastructures in enabling the provision of
spatially relevant information into the broader community. This issue goes far beyond
simply "Online GIS" into examining how spatially explicit metadata is required for
online information in documents, directories, transactions and notification channels.

The paper examines the types of services that an SDI must provide to allow for
geographic organisation of the Web in general, and identifies the mechanisms available
to do so. Some case studies to illustrate implementation of these principles in New South
Wales are presented.
