Since late 2006, the Government of New Brunswick has been working toward implementing its renewed vision for geomatics in New Brunswick. The culmination of this effort is a collaboratively built and maintained Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for New Brunswick, now referred to as GeoNB.
Simply put, an SDI is a shared data environment that improves access to geographic information; however, the GeoNB initiative involves much more than simply sharing data. It also involves sharing tools, technology and services (or applications) built as part of, or linked into, the core infrastructure, along with guiding principles, policies and data standards.
As one of its main objectives, GeoNB will facilitate the sharing of geographic data and services among government departments, non-government organizations, industry, not-for-profit companies, academia, and the general public. GeoNB will even share the infrastructure it is built on by making services and applications available to users. GeoNB will evolve and grow as user needs change and various components (i.e. data sets, tools, services, partners, participants, etc.) are added over time.
Although a great deal of work has already been done to lay the foundation and build a collaborative environment, the release of the GeoNB Map Viewer is, for many stakeholders, the first tangible deliverable of the overall GeoNB initiative.Guiding Development Principles
