The main objectives of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) can be summarized as providing an environment for access and sharing of geographical data between users and data producers, prevent data duplication for the same location. For a country, NSDI can described as a dynamic network facility that established for the services and access and sharing of geographical data and that includes technology, standards, policies, data and human resources. If all the components are designed as sustainable, measurable and definable, all of the studies could be successful in this context. In the literature, usually a two-stage development model has been implemented for NSDI. These can be defined as first and second phases of NSDI. First phase can be characterized as product based applications. This phase includes the studies of databases, data-sharing and project-oriented initiatives. In the second phase, conferences, forums, developing new projects and new strategies gain importance in order to disseminate interoperability and sharing. In particular, the countries that develop NSDI projects, seek new markets in order to transfer their knowledge and to share their experiences with incipient countries. In this context, second phase can be characterized by the implementation of process-based model. The aim of this approach is to develop a framework to facilitate management of information assets and to provide faster communication channels (information infrastructure and capacity building) for users for sharing and using of geographical data. Process-based modelling makes available establishing an efficient connection between human, data, coordination, development and long-term planning. In this paper, Turkish NSDI studies, encountered problems and solution proposals that are carried out in the context of second phase will be presented.
