Abstract

Geoinformation is essential to plan and monitor agricultural activities, justifying efforts to gather and standardize it according to governmental guidelines and to make it available to decision makers and general public. This work aims on presenting the experience of Embrapa on building its Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). This SDI, called GeoInfo, is an initiative to organize, preserve, document and offer geodata produced by the company, in order to increase the application of this information in the production and diffusion of knowledge and innovation. GeoInfo implements the guidelines of the Brazilian National Spatial Data Infrastructure and enables scientific geodata interoperability, encompassing semantics. GeoInfo SDI promotes redundancy of efforts avoidance in obtaining and producing geodata. This initiative enables the integration of geospatial information produced at Embrapa with many other public information sources available worldwide.
