AN INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION AND CONTINOUS IMPROVEMENT OF THE ROMANIAN SPATIAL DATA INFRASTRUCTURE

Cristina Oana, Cristian Vasile, Lucian Zavate

Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the first version of the Romanian NSDI GeoPortal. Geospatial data availability, interoperability and integration remain is still a problem of the current spatial data infrastructures (SDIs). The Romanian INIS GeoPortal, an ANCPI’s special IT project, has aimed to address those challenges today. This online GeoPortal application enables easy, open, seamless, and on demand discovery, access, retrieval, visualization and analysis of distributed geospatial data, information, applications and web services from any member of the NSDI INIS Council. Challenges must still be resolved, but a mature next release of the Romanian INIS GeoPortal will produce tremendous benefits for the Romanian society and our National Spatial Data Infrastructure implementation.
