Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present a general overview of the main activities performed by the Geographic Information and Geographic Information Systems (GI & GIS) Project within the European Commission's Fifth Framework Programme (FP5). The GI & GIS Project activities are perfofn1ed by the Space Applications Institute (SAI) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in close cooperation with other Services or Directorate Generals of the Commission but also with a )arge number of external institutions, both private and public.

The ultimate goal of the GI & GIS Project is the creation of the European Geographic Information Infrastructure (EGII). The same concept also applies at national level in the case of creation of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) where the topics covered and the activities performed are similar. .
