  • Spatial data
    Pursuant with Art. 3 (1) of the Act of 4 March 2010 on the Spatial Data Infrastructure, the Spatial Data means any data with a direct or indirect reference to a specific location or geographical area.
  • Spatial data set
    Pursuant with Art. 3 (11) of the Act of 4 March 2010 on the Spatial Data Infrastructure, the spatial set set means an identifiable collection of spatial data by reason of their common features.
  • Metadata
    Pursuant with Art. 3 (16) of the Act of 4 March 2010 on the Spatial Data Infrastructure, the metadata means information describing spatial data sets and spatial data services and making it possible to discover, inventory and use them.
