Poland: Esri’s ArcGIS technology will be used to create GeoPortal2 for Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography in Poland (GUGiK). This project aims to improve access to government datasets and provide mapping and survey services to other government agencies, citizens and businesses.
The GUGiK has selected Esri’s solutions to support compliance with the European ’s Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) Directive. The directive sets out a framework and timetable for implementing a pan-European spatial data infrastructure (SDI) to address multinational and multi-agency issues. GUGiK is the central state administration unit responsible for national policy related to geodesy and cartography.
GeoPortal2 includes Esri’s ArcGIS for INSPIRE product as well as software from Esri business partner con terra GmbH. The project is being implemented by Esri distributor ESRI Polska sp. z o.o.; Esri partner GISPartner; and Asseco Poland SA, an IT company in the country.
GeoPortal2 is scheduled to be completed in November 2012 and will include:
– Geographic names and addresses throughout Poland,
– Integrated and unified distribution of spatial data services defined by the INSPIRE Directive,
– Streamlined and improved data maintenance,
– Digital archive of spatial data for the central registry of data,
– Uniform maintenance on all orders of data products and services, and
– More accurate monitoring of distributed resources
