The objective of this work package is to study in details the organisational and political aspects of geo-energy and mineral resources data management in the participating countries. The study will result in:
- inventory of the institutions responsible for data collection, storage and distribution
- analysis of relationships between data providers and end-users
- study of the reporting procedure from national levels to EC
- IPR issues of the data dissemination and use.
The work package leader prepared a question list that was distributed between the partners from different countries. The participating geological surveys had collected information regarding organisation of geo-energy and mineral resources management in their countries and presented the structured information to the work package leader that will further compile the final report. The collected information includes the list of national organisations responsible for the data collection, storage and dissemination. The coordination between institutions of different levels (e.g. national, provincial and local) was also described including the national web sites disseminating the data. The final objective of this inventory was to make for an international end-user very clear where and how national geo-resource spatial data can be obtained at this moment.
All this information is included in the report “Political and organisational aspects of geo-energy and mineral resources data management in the participating countries”, that will be available in the beginning of 2011.
