In January, 2020 EUROGI started a discussion regarding what spatial data focussed paradigm or framework would be appropriate in a current and emerging technological and socio-economic world, a world very different from that which existed when the SDI paradigm was developed in the late 1980s/early 1990s. EUROGI invited geospatial thought leaders from around the world to provide short submissions on how they viewed the issue of Beyond SDI.
