Goal of spatial data infrastructure (SDI) is to improve quality and reduce costs related to geographic information, to increase the benefits of using available data, and to establish key partnerships with states, counties, cities, tribal nations, academia and the private sector to increase data availability.

With efforts of previous years, datasets of various types have been produced at global, national, regional, city level. Recently much demand on service and application of SDI has been raised and much attention has been paid to data updating, data harmonization, and geo-spatial cyberinfrastructure that aims at solving the problem of efficiently connecting data, computers, and people over the Internet.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a platform for scholars and professionals in relevant areas to exchange research ideas and interests, to present the newest research results, to discuss the cutting-edge technology, and to promote the development and application of SDI and the international collaboration.
