Subcommission Core Spatial Data publishes research plan >>
The Subcommission Core Spatial Data of the NCG has published her research plan. The field of research of the Subcommission is sketched and elaborated in ten themes. The themes can roughly be divided into two categories: research on interpreted core data (most often vector data) and research on raw or uninterpreted data as acquired by various kinds of sensors. These themes are mutually related.
