SDI discussed at the Map Middle East Conference

The issue "Benefits of SDI" addressed at the Map Middle East Conference
From our daily mail:
“The Third Annual Map Middle East Conference was held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on 9-11 April 2007. It was held in conjunction with the ISPRS. Around 500 delegates, presenters and exhibitors attended this showcase of geospatial technology in the Middle East. One notable session was a roundtable on Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). Speakers came from Australia, South Africa and several Middle East countries. Issues included describing the benefits of SDI to obtain political and user support, data pricing and access and interoperability. It was clear that all jurisdictions represented at the session had similar problems in addressing these issues. Details on the conference can be found at .
