Japanese companies contracted to create the National Geo-spatial Data
Infrastructure Networking System for the Government of Indonesia
December 20, 2010: ITOCHU Corporation and NTT DATA Corporation have received a
contract for a project to create the National Geo-spatial Data Infrastructure
Networking System from the Indonesian National Coordination Agency for Surveys
and Mapping, known as “BAKOSURTANAL.”
This system has been developed to enable Indonesian government agencies to
manage natural resources, social infrastructure, regional development plans and
so on, and will allow multiple government agencies to share spatial data to make
administrative work more efficient and more sophisticated. Work on creating the
system is scheduled to start in January 2011, with operations commencing in May
This project was approved as an ODA project by the Japan International
Cooperation Agency (JICA) on March 29, 2007.
The objective of this project is to create a mechanism for managing national
spatial data continuously and efficiently for the entire Indonesian government.
This includes strengthening the center for managing national spatial data held
by the BAKOSURTANAL and providing training on data management methods to the
government agencies that deal with national spatial data, as well as the key
work of creating the network system.
In addition to the BAKOSURTANAL, this system will be used by ten government
agencies that use national spatial data as part of their work. The system will
also be created as an open system that will be made freely available to general
users via the Internet.
The system will provide users with the following kinds of functions:
・A function for registering national spatial data with the system
・A function for finding and downloading national spatial data that has been
registered on the system, based on search conditions specified by users
(searching by map locations, the institution that created the data, the date
when the data was created, and so on)
・A function for charging fees based on the content of the national spatial
data downloaded and the number of downloads.
・A function for managing each item of national spatial data based on its
disclosure level (such as publicly available, internally available, not
