spatial data infrastructure
Spatial Data Infrastructure
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a ‘new’ technology to collect, digitize, analyze, and share spatial data.
  • GIS, together with GPS and remote sensing, becomes an essential part of spatial data infrastructure in many countries.
the ngis project
The NGIS Project
  • In 1994, Taiwan launched her National GIS project and established a task force to implement the project.
  • The task force is co-chaired by deputy-ministers of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) and Council of Economic Planning and Development (CEPD). Members are from related ministries and local governments.
