1    Major Topics to be Dealt with

As mentioned in Part 1, a draft ISDI Policy Framework will be prepared later in 2004. Based on the discussions that have been held to date it would appear that the proposed ISDI policy framework would need to cover the following main topics.

  • Vision and basic principles
  • User needs
  • Overall structure of the ISDI
  • Spatial area of coverage
  • Standards
  • Key data issues
  • A small areas framework
  • Organisational issues
  • Education and training
  • Legal issues
  • Financial issues, including data costs
  • Consultation, publicity and communications
  • Education and training
  • Implementation issues.

This document deals with each of the above topics in the sections which follow.

Questions / Issues

(1)    Are there any other broad topics which should be dealt with in an ISDI policy framework?

(2)    Do you feel that any of these broad topic areas are of particular importance? Why?
