The State Authority for Geospatial Information (ASIG), in collaboration with the IMPULS project, organized a workshop on February 28, 2019, at the premises of Hotel Tirana International with the theme: “Standardization and harmonization of geospatial data.”

Representatives from responsible public authorities for the topics of Article 11 of Law No. 72/2012, “On the organization and functioning of the National Infrastructure of Geospatial Information in the Republic of Albania,” participated in this workshop. The aim of this workshop was to assist these authorities in harmonizing geospatial data according to the developed standard.

Swedish and Croatian experts from the IMPULS project presented the INSPIRE standards for harmonizing geospatial data, emphasizing the importance of this process for creating the NSDI (National Spatial Data Infrastructure). They also shared the achievements and experiences of their agencies, which play the coordinating authority role in Sweden and Croatia.

ASIG experts demonstrated the data harmonization process for the themes “Geographical Names” and “Hydrography” using various software tools during this workshop.
