SDI of Crowed Sourced Data - a possible future instrument for the SDGs?

Stephan Arnold

(Submission #327)


The gathering of data sources for calculation of the Sustainable Development Goal Indicators is one of major challenges the spatial data community is currently facing, which will keep us busy for the next years to come.
Beside the huge collective of authoritative spatial data of all different kinds, which is already sometimes overwhelming - we see a growing field of a variety of crowd sourced data and volunteered geographic information, which could also play a key role in providing necessary and relevant information on landscape, where authoritative institutions are short of needed data. However, not beeing integrated in the official SDI metadata reporting obligations, it is difficult to get an overview of available crowd sourced data according to specific fields of application, more explicitely according to SDG themes. In this speed presentation some guiding questions shall be thrown on the discussion table, if the SDI community can make suggestions on how to find A way to find THE way to the needed information, e.g. a crowd sourced SDI (to be discussed)?
