Conference program in PDF.

The concept of spatial data infrastructure (SDI), determined at the national level by the Law about State Survey and Real Estate Cadastre (16/07) and at the continental level by the INSPIRE EU directive is a milestone in the approach to spatial information and determines the scope for collecting, analysing, distributing and using spatial information in the future.

The NSDI and INSPIRE Day is organized for the second time, encouraged by the great interest on the first such event last year. We see the need for the promotion of the knowledge on spatial data infrastructure, at national and European level, the need to gather the representatives of the institutions, subjects of the NSDI with idea to speed up the implementation of SDI in Croatia and to develop the geo-enabled society.

The Croatian Cartographic Society (CCS) and State Geodetic Administration (SGA) as components of the geodetic profession in the particular field have the task and aim of demonstrating knowledge and skill of solving problems related to NSDI and ensure a new area of work for its professionals.

The Croatian Cartographic Society by organizing the conference together with the State Geodetic Administration for the second time wants to contribute to the development of geoinformatics, cartography, geography and related fields. This time the emphasis is on spatial data infrastructure which will change understanding of character, importance and use of spatial data.
