|Definitionskos:definition||This engineering report captures use cases representative of the vision of the Arctic Spatial Data Infrastructure (ArcticSDI). The ArcticSDI is a cooperative initiative established between the eight National Mapping Agencies of Canada, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, USA and Denmark, with the aim of providing governments, policy makers, scientists, private enterprises and citizens in the Arctic with access to geographically related Arctic data, digital maps, and tools to facilitate monitoring and decision-making. The initiative will achieve this aim by providing a framework of spatial information resources, organizational structures, technologies of creation, processing and exchange of spatial data, that provides broad access and efficient use of spatial data for the Arctic. The engineering report provides a review of the policy drivers supporting the establishment of spatial data infrastructure (SDI) in each Arctic nation in order to improve understanding of the use cases, user groups and the impact an ArcticSDI may have on their day-to-day business. The engineering report presents lessons learnt along each of the components of SDI, for example, users, data, technology, standards, policy and others. A discussion is presented on how the technologies and standards already in use by the national mapping agencies relate to the technologies and standards implemented by the testbed, as well as how emerging geospatial standards could benefit the ArcticSDI.|
