Workshop Overview

An objective of Working Group 3 of the PCGIAP for 2004-2006 is the development of a framework to facilitate the integration of built and natural enviornmental datasets within a National SDI. PCGIAP, through WG3, with the support of the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration, the University of Melbourne, held a dedicated workshop in order to address this objective in September 2006, as part of the UNRCC-AP Bangkok, Thailand.

This Workshop reviewed the national administration of SDI and data integration within countries in Asia and the Pacific region based on a common template to identify problems, issues, similarities and differences in spatial data infrastructures; institutional arrangements; current data integration methods; technology and human resource and capacity building in data integration.

This included the ability to better understand and describe:

- History of integration of built and natural enviornmental datsets and related National SDI initiatives
- Capacity for and policies relating to data integration of cadastral and topographic datasets
- Institutional support for and barriers against data integration of cadastral and topographic datasets
- The technical, jurisdictional, institutional, legal and land policy perspective surrounding these two types of datasets in a National SDI
- Other countries experiences and initiatives in integrating data in order to identify best practice through the utilisation of a common template

Approximately 40 people from 18 countries and organisations attended the workshop, with presentations on integration and SDI activities from 8 countries, based on an Integration Template developed by researchers from the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration at the University of Melbourne. The outcomes of the workshop are inputing into the development of a model and framework for integration of these two forms of data capable of being used in diverse jurisdictions in support of sustainable development.

A copy of the Workshop Report can be downloaded here. The report includes an overview of the various technical and country presentations and presents an overview of the issues and outcomes of the Workshop. It also includes a copy of the two resolutions which were drafted as part of the Workshop. These resolutions were ratified by the plenary of the 17th UNRCC-AP and include:

Case Study Country Reports

The integration template has been designed as a standardized generic proforma to enable the discovery of information, including matters concerned with member countries’ spatial information policies, laws and regulations, infrastructure implementation, institutional arrangements, technology, and integration issues as well as human resource and capacity. A copy of the template can be downloaded here.

Countries involved in the workshop were asked to complete the template and these completed country reports are available in pdf format from the table below.
