Keywords: Spatial information, infrastructure, digital administration, INSPIRE, Master Data Management, eGovernment, Information Management
AbstractIn the autumn of 2012, the Danish government, Local Government Denmark and Danish Regions signed the agreement about 'Good basic data for everyone – a source of growth and efficiency'. The Basic Data Programme was born, and Denmark had an official and authoritative infrastructure model for spatial information. Work has run in parallel to the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive, and although the two development works have had each their trajectory, there has been, and still is, good synergy between the two infrastructure projects. This article presents the Basic Data Programme and takes stock of the implementation of the same.
