  1. 1. Public sources in Estonia<br />
  2. 2. OSM in Estonia<br />First data – 23.07.2006, by LA2 (Sweden)<br />Tartu city import – 2009 January<br />NGO formalized – 2009 August<br />To rise money<br />To have legal body for parties<br />Corine Land Cover import – 2009 October<br />Official administrative borders<br />NGO Project grant (~26.000 €): 2010-11<br />Localized global map with own servers<br />Local language support<br />Combination of OSM data with OSM-incompatible data<br />Community development, mapping parties<br />
  3. 3. Why import?<br />Small population density<br />Estonia: size of Netherlands, population 1.3 M<br />Some cities not covered yet by volunteers<br />Some roads/areas are very rarely reached by mappers<br />Opportunity<br />Public datasources are available, good IT level by state<br />State organization is not too large, <br />E.g. public WMS by National Land Board<br />Our result<br />About 2/3 of Estonian OSM is currently imported<br />
  4. 4. Possible Sources<br />Two technical types:<br />Vector data<br />On-line services (WMS)<br />State government<br />National Land Board<br />Ministeries<br />Municipalities<br />State agencies<br />E.g. Environmental, nature protection <br />Companies<br />Could be handlers of public data<br />
  5. 5. Issues<br />License – what licence?<br />Our data is in Internet, why don’t you just use it?<br />Do not know difference between:<br />access openess <br />usage rights<br />Hard to access state by private person<br />Official requests, permissions<br />Formal rules by state prefer legal entities<br />Strange cases<br />We already gave our data to X company, we do not want to mess with this again.<br />
  6. 6. Issues 2<br />Law of geospatial data<br />State tries to monopolize all geodata handling<br />Legal know-how needed to be involved in the process<br />State official position<br />Must follow the rules. If no rules, cannot do anything<br />
  7. 7. Extra data<br />We have got also permission to use:<br />Aerial imagery<br />DEM model data<br />Where to put them?<br />
  8. 8. Suggestions<br />Socialize and network (without Internet)<br />Formal NGO is useful to speak with state<br />Import<br />Import as little as possible (but as much as needed)<br />Where existing data has very little value, so it can be discarded safely<br />New datasets with no existing data, e.g. buildings<br />
