Abstract

The International Cartographic Association (ICA) has proposed a formal model to describe Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) using three of the five viewpoints of the RM-ODP (Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing) framework, which was later adapted by other researchers. However, the adapted ICA model has not been validated for corporate-level SDI. The Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais (Minas Gerais Power Company - Cemig) seeks to develop an SDI to aid in discovering and reutilizing spatial data within and outside the corporation. The present study aimed to assess the use of the model proposed by the ICA to specify corporate-level SDI using SDI-Cemig as a case study by describing the viewpoints Enterprise and Information. These viewpoints from the adapted ICA model have proved appropriate to describe SDI-Cemig, whose differences are due to the SDI’s peculiarities. Although a single study cannot validate the ICA model for a whole SDI level, this research shows that the adapted ICA model can be used to describe the viewpoints Enterprise and Information in corporate SDI.
