Main document of the GeoInfoDoc - Version 7.0.2

13th May 2017 In the AAA® project, AdV conceived an integrated and coordinated modelling of all geospatial data from the Surveying, Mapping and Cadastre Authorities of Germany and implemented it through its member administrations. The procedure is described in detail in the main document of the "Documentation on the modelling of the geoinformation of the official surveying system (GeoInfoDok)". In addition to the current version 6.0.1 of the main document, version 7.0.2 is also available in English.

Guidelines for the nationwide uniform archiving of geographic reference data

1st January 2017 For many years surveying and mapping authorities and the archive authorities of the Laender of Germany are working together with regard to the delivery of analogue products, particularly maps. More and more the surveying and mapping authorities produce digital data, and new ways have to be set up for basic uniform regulations for the process of archiving digital geographic reference data.
For this reason, AdV and the Conference of Directors of the Archive Authorities of the Federal Government and the Laender (KLA) appointed a joint working group to develop a document on a harmonised approach to this challenge. Both AdV and KLA adopted the resulting guidelines at the end of 2015. The complete document has now been translated into English
