In order to make full use of Spatial Data Infrastructures, Spatial Data Sharing (SDS) is essential. Various authors indicate that the attitude of both individuals and organizations towards SDS is quite often problematic. For various reasons and motivations, SDS is far from optimal. However, studies on understanding individual as well as organizational behavior towards SDS are in its infancy and a challenge for new theory development.
