The vision of satisfy this requirements from the countries (bottom-up) in order to avoid duplication, cost and misunderstandings for the different level of Administration (decision policies) is crucial. The integration and look for the synergies with the traditional topographic production system is an important role for many NMCA´s, due both activities are necessary, but the production system and life cycle could be different. In this work also summarize the Spanish example that received from the UN the award as one of the most relevant Public Service in world, in this case dedicated to the Geospatial Information and Production, “the National Program for Land Observation (PNOT)”.;
