     Reference:

The project "Creation of National Geospatial Data Infrastructure" has been underway since September 2015. The aim of the project is to create a prototype of the NIGD system in the pilot territory in Vinnytsia region in accordance with the best international practices and the INSPIRE Directive. The beneficiary of the project is the State Geocadastre.

    The finished prototype of the NIGID system, which integrates dozens of information layers on a single mapping basis, will be presented at the international conference "NIGD: Towards an Information Society", to be held on February 22, 2018 in Kiev.
