The Spatial data infrastructure (SDI) manual for the Arctic is available due to the collaborative work between representatives from the eight participating national mapping agencies of the Arctic countries.

The goal of this manual is to provide information and guidance on the planning, management, development and maintenance of the Arctic SDI to the various involved groups, to provide best data management practices, to identify policy and guideline requirements and to demonstrate the value and benefits of using a SDI for efficient monitoring and decision making in the Arctic.

A concise report on the evaluation of the Arctic SDI is also available.
