Abstract(Summary)
This report is written to meet the following objective: conduct research and provide analysis and recommendations on the issue of archiving and preserving CGDI's geospatial data assets, including solutions for perpetual access. The report is based primarily on research of available documents and literature, supplemented by consultations with a primary stakeholder, Library and Archives Canada (LAC). It includes the results of:
· research of legislative requirements for the archiving and preservation of Canada's geospatial data;
· consultation with Library and Archives Canada;
· geospatial data and archiving considerations in Canada's current information management policy;
· an environmental scan of Canadian consultations and reports and Canadian research on digital data archiving and preservation;
· an environmental scan of geospatial data archiving and preservation in Canada and abroad; and
· research of business models for archiving and preservation.
