(Submission #374)


Abstract

The Viti municipality is located in south-eastern part of Kosova, known as Anamorava region, with 297km2 area. Its spatial planning is under the responsibilities of the municipality of Viti, which is mainly related to the National Spatial Plan of the Republic of Kosova, as well national law for Spatial Planning (no.04/L-174) and regulations (administrative instructions) for implementation of spatial and urban plans. In central-national level, Spatial Plan of Kosova and spatial plans for protected special areas are defined to be developed by the Agency for spatial planning under the Ministry of environment and spatial planning, so the municipalities are responsible for developing spatial plans in three levels: Municipal Developing Plan, Urban Developing Plan, and Urban Regulatory Plan.
In the municipality of Viti, official spatial plans of three levels are prepared and are in everyday usage by the municipality and other stakeholders. Three databases have been developed in digital form; however they were non-standardized, non-harmonized and non-integrated between them.
Urban Regulatory Plan consist 12 layers, Urban Developing Plan consist of 18 layers, and Municipal Developing Plan consist 55 layers. Although three databases have been developed and managed by the same municipality, different standards and platforms have been used for their establishing. Urban Regulatory Plan and Urban Developing Plan were originally developed in Geodatabase (mdb) format in ArcGIS, while the Municipal Developing Plan consist separate layers as shape (.shp) files. During research, three databases have been restructured in order to establish the SDI for municipality spatial planning purposes. The INSPIRE was used as basic platform, which was extended based on the specific layers of three databases. At the end, restructured databases are fully harmonized, fully interoperability and completely standardized by the same rules. For the research purposes, FOSS have been used. For desktop purposes QGIS software has been used, for databases storage PostGIS was used, while the GeoServer has been used for establishing of web platform.
