The development of modern European trends in the field of land administration imposed the necessity of developing cross-border, regional cooperation with the neighboring countries, especially taking into consideration the initiative of the European Commission to develop a European spatial data infrastructure beyond national borders of each country.


Project aims to promote Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and further coordinate its implementation in the Western Balkans  in order to prepare beneficiaries to meet with the objectives of the Inspire Directive.

Overall, the project aims to lay the basic preconditions for the sustainability of spatial data infrastructures in the region, as is the development of public awareness, changes in legislation, training, exchange of experiences and knowledge etc. with the aim of developing a favorable environment for accurate , up-to-date,  high quality, well structured and accessible spatial data at local, regional and state administrative bodies in the Western Balkans.

Project Beneficiaries are countries from the  Western Balkans: Albania, Bosnia and 

Herzegovina, Croatia, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo under UNSCR 1244/99. 




Spatial data have become an important part of our everyday life. 


80% of all stored data contain a geographic or spatial reference. Without the same, we cannot book a flight for vacation, we cannot check tomorrow’s weather forecast nor can we hear the state roads report over the radio. 


More information about spatial data is available in the brochure.
