Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) are defined as the technology, policies, standards, human resources, and related activities necessary to acquire, process, distribute, use, maintain, and preserve spatial data. GIS Worlds: Creating Spatial Data Infrastructures discusses the diffusion and evolution of SDIs around the world, shows where SDIs are advancing, and describes where more work is needed. More significantly, it details the implementation of SDIs from a practical perspective and outlines a method of institution building for regional, continental, and global SDIs. This text promises to illuminate even further the need for intelligent governance and strong leadership in the GIS and spatial data communities.
