SDI 2.0into the 21st centuryMaurits van der VlugtSpatial Information strategist
Overview • SDI as we know it • SDI 2.0 • Examples • Challenges
But… Not very successful • Expensive • Slow • Supply Driven • Plenty of YAPs – but no users
Some Buzzwords • Web 2.0 / Social Media • Crowd Sourcing – Volunteered Geo-Information (VGI) • User Generated Content • Augmented Reality • Geotagging • And many more…
Neo-Geography? The “[...] usage of geographical techniques and tools used for personal and community activities or for utilization by a non-expert group of users” • Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neogeography The “[...] usage of geographical techniques and tools used for personal and community activities or for utilization by a non-expert group of users” • Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neogeography
Key differences • Users are Producers • and there are plenty of them! • Decentralisation of “Authority” • E.g. Open Streetmap, Wikipedia • Quality is in the eye of the beholder • The Internet is the Marketplace • Fast, Cheap, Demand driven!

Challenges • Ignore at our peril • Where does this leave government? • Next big things • The long-tail model of Spatial Data Collection • From YAPs to ‘fine-grained‘APIs for mash-up purposes • R&D: Validation & Filtering • R&D: What Licencing and Business models work?
Summary • SDI as we know it? “so last century!” • SDI 2.0 • Driven by Web 2.0 and Neogeography • No more distinction between users and producers • Harnessing the long tail • Dramatically shifting role for government • Ignore at our peril!
