A global perspective – GSDI association (Professor Ian Masser)

  • Opportunities for PCGIAP

  • Through

    • Influencing the future development of the GSDI Association

    • Informing - acting as a channel for the dissemination upwards downwards and sideways

    • Acting to establish an effective and operational APSDI


A regional perspective pcgiap
A regional perspective – PCGIAP Masser)

  • The aims of the PCGIAP and its method of operation are generally still valid. They should be subject to continuous review.

  • Participation rates must improve. Innovative approaches should be tested.

  • Members must want to be involved. There must be benefits to members from their participation.

  • Outputs must continue to focus on the ultimate objective of the APSDI. They must be achievable.

  • The relationship with the UN must be strengthened, but not at the expense of independence of action.

  • Links must continue to be forged with external bodies, to assist learning and to avoid duplication.

  • Outputs of the PCGIAP must be defined and tested in consultation with stakeholders to ensure they are satisfied.


A national perspective nsdi of india
A national perspective – NSDI of India Masser)

  • Issues to be resolved

    • NSDI Standards – What next ?

    • Should the NSDI remain supply side, top down initiative or should it converge with a demand side bottom up approach ?

    • Can we empower citizens and communities to author, upload and own their data infrastructures ?

    • NSDI- Time line ahead

    • Should we or should we not legislate NSDI?

    • Map restriction policy

    • What will be the mechanisms to ensure that the data assets will become a part of NSDI to meet quality standards ?

    • Should access be controlled and regulated ?

A national perspective – NSDI of India Masser)

  • Issues to be discussed

    • Should links to non standard data be available ?

    • Should the NSDI promote and fund data acquisition ?

    • Cost recovery – should the NSDI encourage data holders for adopting cost recovery principles or should it try and bring more and more data in the free of charge domain ?

    • Should the NSDI limit itself to data availability and access or should it offer customised value added services to targetted users/customers ?

    • Can the NSDI become a platform for public private partnerships for offering value added services ?

    • Can we define the limits of the services to be made available and leave the rest to market or should we go the wholehog into complete range of products and services?

    • Should there be a strong commercial drive to the NSDI?

    • Can we leap frog technologies and offer products and services not conventionally associated with NSDIs?

    • Can the NSDI user interface be technologically far ahead of every one


An education and research perspective melbourne university
An education and research perspective – Melbourne University

  • PCGIAP to develop policies and guidelines on education and research

  • PCGIAP torecommend that WG4 undertake a questionnaire to determine the amount of SDI teaching in SI and GIS courses and degrees in Asia and the Pacific

  • PCGIAP torecommend that every SI or GIS course or degree has a subject on SDI

  • PCGIAP to seek support from a PCGIAP member state to sponsor a SDI short course on an annual basis (possibly in conjunction with PCGIAP meetings)

  • PCGIAP to support the establishment of SDI web based Newsletters world-wide

An education and research perspective – Melbourne University

  • PCGIAP to recommend that WG4 develop a generic course outline for a SDI subject

  • PCGIAP to recommend each WG to identify two major issues or problems requiring research, and within available resources, to support that research

  • PCGIAP to recommend that each member state support two SDI research projects at a government level

  • PCGIAP to recommend to GSDI the establishment of a SDI journal

  • PCGIAP to recommend that each member state should develop an education and research section in their SDI web site


A technology perspective
A technology perspective University

  • Interoperability is a growing trend. The Open GIS Consortium (OGC) and GSDI are still carving out standards -based specifications and promoting a national data infrastructure, in which sharing of information is easy and in real time.

  • To have meaning, technological capabilities must meet human needs. The geo spatial community must work together to remove barriers and achieve success.


Panel discussion
Panel discussion University

  • Influencing decisionmakers?

  • Measures of performance and effectiveness of SDI?
