To ensure spatial information for the implementation of Community policies primarily means to ensure the accessibility and usability of geospatial assets through effective platforms working closely with the state of environment. After successful preparations of background policy and strategy plans starting from 2003s, Turkey is in the stage of various implementations of National Spatial Information Infrastructure efforts through various projects. ‘Cloud-based Urban Information’ and ‘Technical Assistance for Capacity Building in the Horizontal Sector for the Implementation of INSPIRE Directive’ are the most recent ones collaboratively conducted by Ministry of Environment and Urbanization through powerful stakeholders contributing the geospatial mechanisms for society, where local administrations, namely the municipals play outstanding role. From technical realizations point of view, both studies are having similar projections for the use of cloud system, however, the Technical Assistance for the Implementation of INSPIRE Directive Project mainly encompasses four components as the development of cloud-based standardized geospatial software modules, development of cloud management software and setting standardized high efficiency procedures by using process modelling as well as constituting the legislative regulations for all components ensuring the functionality in the digital society. All the systems and sub-systems are designed on top of a core infrastructure compatible with cloud architecture enabling one to expand both horizontal and vertical sense. The systems mainly include cloud infrastructure, platform and software services, IaaS, PaaS and SaaS respectively. Web services and database integration are envisaged to be realized by the use of common standards set by INSPIRE Directive. Cloud based geospatial applications specifically addressing the municipality's requirements concerning geospatial processes are the modules including 3D Topographic Map, Address Assessment, Infrastructure, Building Information Management, Expropriation etc.

To fulfill one of the other important component of the Project, the organizational structure for the process management have been identified through the ‘as-is’ and consequently ‘gap’ analyses in the pilot municipals. "To-Be" business processes and sub-processes are modelled for the institutions and organizations related with geospatial procedures. Hence, an ability has been achieved to manage, operate and report by the Process Management Tool to be installed on cloud platforms. Comprising of all efforts, both technical and administrative nature, related legislations have been prepared in order to form legal basis of all those work envisaged in the context of INSPIRE impact analyses.
