Scope:       Preservation and access to records with geodata

Slovenia Env Agency

This Pilot aims to develop and test guidelines and tools for archiving of digital geographical maps which have in the past been used as a basis for decision making in government and other official procedures, for example in granting planning permission and building permits, where to levy taxes and in monitoring pollution.

Focusing on digital geographical data in vector format, the pilot will produce guidelines that can be used by anywhere for archiving the digital geo data and the required documentation, and which will ensure a proper understanding of and reuse of these records in the future.

It will also demonstrate that the integration of existing open-source tools and the tools developed in the E-ARK project will support the archiving process and also the later access to such data.

Users will benefit by gaining access to a wider range of geodata and by, using location based search tools, by having the opportunity to use and compare additional descriptions of the required documents for the interpretation of and, significantly, the re-use of the geo data.

Access to geodata will be provided to experts using open source GIS tools. For those with limited or no data knowledge, a web mapping tool will be provided. Web services will improve accessibility and allow delivery via a web browser.
