Sao Paulo's Spatial Data Infrastructure (Infraestrutura de dados espaciais de São Paulo)

Twelve state public agencies joined the Space Data Infrastructure Program for the State of São Paulo, IDE-SP, , whose main objective is to consolidate an integrated network of geospatial databases of government instances.

The information is from Companhia Paulista de Planejamento Metropolitano (Emplasa), manager of IDE-SP, which expects to have a total of 30 accessions in the second half of 2018.

"IDE-SP has been showing its benefits, with the organization, systematization, standardization and dissemination, in a more agile and secure way, of geospatial information, as established by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (INDE)", emphasizes the director-president of Emplasa, Luiz José Pedretti.

He explains that since the establishment of Decree 61.486 / 2015, the SD-SP has centralized the access to geospatial data of the various public institutions, integrating the state collection and promoting the dissemination of this information. "According to article 6 of the Decree, the organs and entities of the public administration are responsible for the mandatory sharing of their geospatial data," he reinforces.

Emplasa manages and is responsible for the implementation, coordination, administration and execution of the actions related to IDE-SP, which since 2017 is part of INDE. Last year, IDE-SP was a finalist for the Mario Covas Award, which highlighted public management projects for the benefit of citizens.

With a new face, IDE-SP presents its new visual identity this month, developed from an exclusive brand. The platform has also been reconstructed visually, adding the same standard already used in other digital products of Emplasa.

Already on the platform homepage, the user finds quick access to the metadata catalog. The viewer has been modernized and now has a smart menu that can be moved by the user. The navigation space of the maps has been enlarged, facilitating the visualization of the content.
