Abstract: The presentation will focus on how geodata Is used in Norway. Over 600 public actors at different levels produce or have a need for spatial data, and to avoid duplication of efforts and share the benefits of these data as widely as possible they participate in a nationally coordinated cooperation. The objective is to demonstrate our best practices in terms of data collection, maintenance, dissemination and use within a spatial data infrastructure. Additionally, to show how Norway is influenced by but also contributes towards international standards for geographic information.
