A Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) provides access to any kind of spatial data to users. It comprises the technology, policies, standards and human resources necessary to acquire, process, store, distribute and improve utilisation of geospatial data.

The conference will demonstrate the importance of SDIs and their use, on local, national or regional level in the region of South East Europe and its relation to global initiatives. It targets the process of spatial data sharing through the Internet, as a tool for faster, easier and simpler access to spatial data by all stakeholders, customers and clients; the implementation of International/Global and European criteria for organizing digital spatial data ; the impact of SDIs on all application fields; cooperation between stakeholders such as state institutions responsible for collecting, structuring, archiving, updating and analyzing spatial data according to their legal mission and obligation.
