Description

trengthen access to geographic information
Beginning of October 2018 – End of August 2020
Lead implementing agency/actor
- Ministry of the National defense - the National Mapping and Remote Sensing Center
Commitment description
Access to information through geomatics mechanisms and facilitating opening up of public data related to several sectors such as transportation, security, local development, health, agriculture, equipment and tourism has become a priority working area for public institutions, given the importance of produced data in these sectors as well as increasing demand from citizens and actors involved in the geomatics field. Therefore, this commitment will allow to:
- Develop a portal for access to geographic information within the framework of the GIS infrastructure project;
- Establish basic databases as an output of this project (topographic databases, flat aerial photos, addresses,...) that will be adopted by public and private structures as a foundation and common reference to establish thematic databases (transportation, health, security, development, tourism, agriculture,..).
Problem/Background
Difficulty of access and re-use of information through geomatics mecha- nism, preventing the creation of added value for all stakeholders. This is due to:
- Absence of a unified national repository for the geographic
information;
- Geographic data produced doesn't conform to international
specifications and standards;
- Lack of cooperation and partnership among actors.
Identification of commitment objectives/expected results
Facilitating the access to and re-use of geographic information by all stakeholders through:
- Providing a unified national reference for the Tunisian Republic;
- Providing geographic information in accordance with international
specifications and standards as well as promoting the good use of
information;
- Promoting cooperation and partnership among all actors to
createadded value for their benefit.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Enabling users’ access to unified geographic information that complies with international standards as well as allowing its use in a timely and secure manner through the electronic portal.
Relevance with OGP values
Transparency and openness: this commitment will enable further dissem- ination of unified and up-to-date geographic information and avoid dupli- cation of data production in addition to promoting relations of cooperation and partnership among stakeholders involved in order to create added value for the benefit for all concerned parties.
