ABSTRACT

Technical Baseline for Accessing a Virtual Global SDI   [open pdf - 65KB]

"This paper describes current technical methodologies being implemented in the Information Technology (IT) and geospatial disciplines that are supportive of traditional community building, and are essential to the construction of a globally consistent architecture in which geospatial information and services can flourish. These include the consideration of enterprise architecture as a unifying design technique, creation of an online provider and services directory, identification of adopted standards and specifications within an architecture, the publication of spatial data structures, syntax, and semantics to enable their re-use, and the construction of integrative data and mapping gateways and desktop applications that exploit online data."
