Blurb/Shorttext:
Governments all over the world are being challenged to develop Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI), to improve the access and use of spatial data for decision support and sustainable development. Therefore, SDI is part of the basic infrastructure that needs to be efficiently implemented and managed in the interest of any nation. Many developing countries have embarked on a long journey towards SDI development. This book provides therefore an assessment on the feasibility to establish SDI in a typical underdeveloped country which is Rwanda, using the Land administration geospatial data sector as a case study. The concept of SDI is firstly explained in order to provide a common understanding of the concept. The new trends in the new Land Administration System of Rwanda, with emphasis on spatial data management are also presented. An assessment of Land Administration geospatial data, related assets and gaps with reference to SDI framework requirements demonstrates who are providers and users of existing spatial datasets. It highlights a number of challenges and opportunities as well. The SDI prototype with its main application of Spatial Data discovery Facility is proposed.
