CARTOGRAPHY / NSDI
An indispensable tool to understanding territories, maps have been diversified to a great extent in the form of geographic databases, either vector or raster. Mapping work in countries is increasingly embedded in a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) approach, which can be embedded in an even more global approach such as a National Geomatic Plan (NGP). The challenge at a national level is therefore to extend this reference geographic database using information from other public organisations in order to create comprehensive, consistent and coherent thematic databases from which numerous business applications could be developed as well as various cartographic products.
IGN FI offers to accompany its clients throughout all the phases of their SDI and mapping projects: assessing the current situation on data already available, technical aspects (from the initial collection of data to its update) and organisational issues (transfer of technology, coordination, etc.).
