  journal={Int. J. Spatial Data Infrastructures Res.},
The term Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) was defined in the nineties as a set of policies, technologies and institutional arrangements for improving the availability and accessibility of spatial data and information. SDIs are typically driven by governmental organizations, and thus follow top-down structures based on regulations and agreements. The drawback is that it renders SDIs less easily capable of evolving with new technological trends. While organizations are still struggling to… Expand

Relaunching the Kenya National Spatial Data Infrastructure
Despite a history of more than 15 years, the Kenya National Spatial Data Infrastructure had largely stagnated in 2016. The national geoportal, often regarded as the face of a Spatial DataExpand
Roadblocks Hindering the Reuse of Open Geodata in Colombia and Spain: A Data User's Perspective
A taxonomy of barriers to open geographic data reuse for Colombia and Spain is suggested, based on a literature review, an online questionnaire, and workshops conducted in four cities of these two countries. Expand
Spatial Education for Different User Groups as a Prerequisite for Creating a Spatially Enabled Society and Leveraging SDI
This paper argues that “Spatial Citizenship” seems to be an appropriate education approach to train user groups as pupils/ students and adults (non-GI professionals), who demand for different education initiatives adjusted to their particular situation. Expand


Beyond SDI: Integrating Science and Communities to Create Environmental Policies for the Sustainability of the Amazon
This paper will explore ways to go beyond the traditional SDI (spatial data infrastructures) in the direction of the Digital Earth, with the objective of supporting environmental policies that willExpand
Managing user-generated information in geospatial cyberinfrastructures
The Service Framework addresses the need to improve the availability of geospatial data resources by providing mechanisms to assist users in wrapping resources to generate INSPIRE-based services. Expand
The Future of Spatial Data Infrastructures: Capacity-building for the Emergence of Municipal SDIs
This paper suggests a distributed scheme whereby each department would be in charge of the upkeep of its own urban data, leveraging the power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as the platform for intra- and inter-departmental sharing of information. Expand
A Network Perspective on Spatial Data Infrastructures: Application to the Sub‐national SDI of Flanders (Belgium)
In order to provide a basis for quantitative and qualitative assessment of SDI-performance, a clear definition and a theoretical framework for SDI are needed. From the various definitions andExpand
Building SDIs: the challenges ahead
The spatial information vision for most countries is to create a virtual state where any spatial information is available to any user, any time and any place, with the major challenge being the creation of a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) to support the vision. Expand
Geospatial Web Services for Distributed Processing: Applications and Scenarios
This chapter provides an overview of the current state-of-the-art approach of distributed geoprocessing by describing the related concepts, such as the OGC Web Processing Service, workflows, Quality of Service and legacy system integration. Expand
Development of a Web-Based GIS Using SDI for Disaster Management
Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) can provide an appropriate environment for influencing participation of organizations in spatial data production process and sharing and web-based GIS can provide appropriate tool for data entry and sharing as well as data analysis to support decision-making.
