SDI In The Context Of Nepal

  1. 1. SPATIAL DATA INFRASTRUCTURE GEOM 406 Course Instructor :Mr. Shashish Maharjan Presented By: Group 1 Ruby Adhikari (01) Tina Baidar (02) 1 Arun Bhandari (03) Biplov Bhandari (04) Bhanu Bhakta Bhatta (05) 2/26/2014 SDI IN CONTEXT OF NEPAL
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION 2/26/2014  Spatial Data Infrastructure???  Its well-known.. A SDI should enable the discovery and delivery of spatial data from a data repository, via a spatial service provider, to a user Hence, the basic software components of an SDI are:  a software client - to display, query, and analyze spatial data (this could be a browser or a Desktop GIS),  a catalogue service - for the discovery, browsing, and querying of metadata or spatial services, spatial datasets and other resources,  a spatial data service - allowing the delivery of the data via the Internet,  processing services - such as datum and projection transformations,  a (spatial) data repository - to store data, e.g. a Spatial database,  GIS software (client or desktop) - to create and update spatial data 2
  3. 3. SDI IN NEPAL 2/26/2014 In Nepal, SDI is being developed as a tool for national spatial data collection, storage, processing and dissemination.  NSDI is the common portal to use Geo-spatial data in effective and efficient way and link with other attribute database  NSDI helps to reduce duplication of efforts, avoid redundant expenditures and eliminate corruption practices  3

  5. 5. FUNDAMENTAL DATA SETS    The fundamental data sets of Nepal is the National Topographic Data Base (NTDB) 2/26/2014  It contains the different layers such as geodetic data, administrative boundaries, transportation networks, buildings, Hydrography, Topography, utilities, Land cover, etc which is organized at sheet level The basis for NTDB is the digitization of topographic base maps of scale 1:25 000 for the Terai and the middle mountains and of scale1:50 000 for high mountains and Himalayas of Nepal. Furthermore, a large scale 1:5 000 to 1: 10 000 ortho-photo database is provided for densely populated urban and semiurban areas. 5
  6. 6. FRAMEWORK DATA SETS  2/26/2014  Database obtained from different sources of the related disciplines such as National Data base of Population Census, Agricultural, Soil, Geological, etc. The aggregation and integration of fundamental data sets and framework data sets solves the purpose of NSDI. 6
  7. 7. NGIIP   2/26/2014  Government of Nepal has initiated the National Geographical Information Infrastructure Programme (NGIIP) for building NSDI since 2002. Mission To strengthen planning and resource management in Nepal through the development of a geographic information infrastructure for the access of geographic and related data for decision-making. Objectives To develop an NGII platform to facilitate data sharing among Survey Department, Central Bureau of Statistics and participating agencies. 7

RECENT PROGRAMS: oJune The event concluded by drawing set of resolutions as follows: 2/26/2014 29, 2007: Symposium of Senior Policy Executives and Decision-Makers on Spatial Data Infrastructure. Resolution 1: SDI initiatives in Nepal developed as NGII is essential and necessary, and that it be promoted further. Resolution 2: A guiding policy statement on the importance of NSDI and Geo-ICT be stated in the National IT Policy and a comprehensive SDI Policy be formulated separately. Resolution 3: An appropriate institutional framework for SDI be approved by Government of Nepal under the umbrella of a National Geo-Information Council (to be formed) headed by National Planning 26 Commission and a National Geo-Information Centre
  27. 27. Resolution 4: All geo-data produces and users organizations contribute through de-facto participation in NSDI through publishing metadata of their data in the NGII clearinghouse and that they encourage their experts to participate in different Working Groups. 2/26/2014  Resolution 5: All geo-data produces and users organizations contribute to the promotion of NSDI through exchange and sharing of non-restricted data easily and freely (which means at a minimal cost); and in so-doing review and revise the pricing of their data to keep minimal. Resolution 6: The National Planning Commission take appropriate step to state the importance of SDI and a commitment for its promotion in the soon-to-be formulated three-years' Interim Plan which is due to be approved by Government of Nepal. 27
  28. 28.  July 2, 2008: Workshop on Spatial Data Infrastructure and Disaster Management Following five technical papers were presented during the workshop:  Spatial Data Infrastructure: Opportunities and Challenges (Mr. D.M.Kayastha, NGIIP)  SDI and National Atlas (Mr. S.M.Shrestha, NGIIP)  SDI and Disaster Management (Mr. S.K.Dhakal, NGIIP)  SDI and Land Administration (Mr. S.N.Rajbhandari,DOLIA)  Geomatic Education in the context of SDI (Dr. Bhola Thapa, KU) 2/26/2014 The workshop was attended by some forty officials representing different Ministries, Departments, Stakeholders and Universities 28
  29. 29. 2/26/2014 The workshop concluded by drawing a set of resolutions as follows:  Government of Nepal should take necessary initiatives to facilitate development of suitable infrastructures of geographic information and to establish Disaster Management Support System at appropriate level in the country  National Policy of geographic information should be formulated and adopted. A high level geographic data/information committee be constituted with appropriate representation of all stakeholders to enhance inter-agency cooperation and also to manage all sectors related with spatial data and information, in order to achieve effective and sustainable development of geographic information. Also emphasized the need of establishing a National Geographic data/information Centre as an implementing agency of the proposed high level committee. 29
  30. 30.  National Atlas signifies the level of development of a nation. Considering above adage, preparation of national Atlas should be expedited, the first step would be forming a committee of related experts. In order to facilitate informed decision making and also to support coordinated development of national geographic information infrastructure, all government agencies should take necessary initiatives to establish a GIS unit. Government of Nepal shall give highest priority in acquisition, archiving and distribution of updated information in all government agencies including survey department. Environment should be created to facilitate sharing of data among government agencies at minimal cost and with ease. 2/26/2014  30
