Geoinformation. Law and practice” ed. Marlena Jankowska & Mirosław Pawełczyk

Geospatial information infrastructure is gaining ever more attention, though academic studies on creating and using that infrastructure remain few and far between. It is clear that the rapid increase in the amount and diversity of data concerning phenomenon happening on the surface of the earth and under it, as well as relevant technological developments, has caught the attention of European Union regulators, and has led to it being regulated, particularly in the area of disseminating the data gathered by the public administration at various levels. With this in mind the editors of the book, scholars at Faculty of Law and Administration at University of Silesia in Katowice, came up with the idea of gathering specialists from University of Canberra, Jagiellonian University, University of Miskolc, University of Nebraska – College of Law, University of Osnabrück, Tbilisi State University, Wageningen University and Kaufmann Consulting to discuss the rules of creating and accessing geospatial information databases. It is believed that a common editorial scheme will contribute to a better understanding of the actions taken on the geo-information market, and will become a platform for exchanging ideas and experiences of many representatives of universities, public administration and business.…The reviewed publication presents legal aspects which concern using geospatial data and building the infrastructure for spatial information from the point of view of several countries, also from these outside the EU.

…The book “Geoinformation. Law and Practice” is the need of the hour towards building an insight to understand the present day scenario.
