The main aim of the workshop was to come to agreements on a joint data sharing policy and technical standards. Coordination of line ministries regarding geographic data is necessary, because there is no general regulation on geographic information, nor an authority to decide on standards and practices of production, distribution and sharing of geographic information. As a result authorities have their own standards and practices, which are not always coherent. The GIS Committee supports the introduction of standards and promotes exchange of information to avoid overlapping work.
