NSDI policy for creative economy and government 3.0 in Korea

Korea government has invested a lot of efforts in establishing national spatial data infrastructure (NSDI) since 1995. As a result, various geospatial data including three dimensional spatial data are available through open spatial information platform and the clearing house. Other components of NSDI including standards, institutions and human resource training have also been practiced. In addition, the geospatial industry is registered as a special Industrial classification in Korea Standard Industrial Classification for the first time in the world. Korea government is now moving to creative economy and government 3.0. Geospatial data is recognized as an important source for creative economy because it works as a melting pot to produce a new value-added product such as screen golf in Korea. Geospatial data undergoes a light again as an important tool to make government transparent since it provides an avenue for scientific administration and effective communication with people. Accordingly a new fifth strategic plan for NSDI is developed to support the policy directions at the end of 2013. To this end, three objectives are identified: Fostering creative economy through convergence of ICT based on geospatial data, implementation of gov 3.0 through sharing and opening geospatial data, and enhancement of existing NSDI. Seven strategies including geospatial big data platform project are formulated. This presentation aims to share NSDI achievements and the new strategic plan.
