Abstract:
We explore the activity of actors in geosciences and information science in relation to digital preservation of spatial data produced with public or private funds. The experience of four recent projects, two with the participation of libraries and two with archives, each in coalition with spatial data centres are compared. Their recommendation is applied to the context of the Institut Cartogràfic de Catalunya with the goal to develop a preservation strategy for spatial data produced and collected in Catalonia (Spain).
