At the GeoTest Centre, service and certification are developed for those that have a need for carrying out tests of their geodata and in such a way assure the quality of the entire process from producer of data to users and citizens. The effect will be a safer use of the geodata for all parties in the chain as well as a more efficient use of the geodata that now are made available to the SDI society via different portals and web services.
Thanks to the fact that the GeoTest Centre is being built up in co-operation between several strong actors within the area, when need arises, possibility of being able to scale up the activity is provided, as well as securing the supply of know-how. The activity is conducted based on the process approach of Research-Learning-Development-Innovation-Demonstration.
By the National GeoTest Centre of Sweden, producers, users and test teams are offered a meeting place for exchange of experiences and methods development.
Lab environments for testing and demonstrate different types of data and applications are constructed. These environments can be adapted based on the desires and needs of different clients. By the fact that GeoTest is established together with the GIS Institute and the FPX Cluster, there is a wide access to competence in order to be able to create the best possible test teams for each assignment. This also gives access to experience and knowledge from a variety of research and development projects undertaken both in Sweden and abroad.
