Warsaw: The Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography of Poland is getting ready to implement Geoportal 2, a project meant to provide georeferenced records and related services to citizens, businesses and public administrations.
The main goal of the GEOPORTAL 2 project is to provide citizens, businesses and public administration access to government registers, which contain high quality, current and reliable data. As a result of the GEOPORTAL 2 project, services related to spatial data will also be enabled. Widespread access to and the use of spatial information in Poland will be made possible through the expansion of the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). The infrastructure for spatial data services will be available not only to certain government units, which create or maintain records, but also for citizens, businesses and other entities. The Spatial Data Infrastructure, which supports the country’s sustainable development and environmental protection, will be a part of the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Union. The project will be part of the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Union, meeting requirements of the INSPIRE Directive and EU regulations. The primary long-term consequence of Geoportal 2 will be the improvement of the quality of spatial data in the reference records, their availability, as well as their use.
