MaCGDI is a centre established by the government to manage and promote the development of geospatial data infrastructure for Malaysia (MyGDI). MaCGDI is also responsible for coordinating access and delivery of the geographic information held by all government agencies.
MaCGDI was established in December 2002 to replace the NaLIS Secretariat under the Minstry of Land and Cooperative Development (MLCD). On the 27th March 2004, MaCGDI was subsumed under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE).
The mission of MaCGDI is to build networks of people and technology to facilitate, coordinate and manage geospatial data infrastructure through the development of policies, standards, data, ICT Technology, R&D and skilled human resources by providing customer-focused, cost effective and timely delivery of geospatial data.
MaCGDI is organised with thirteen (13) sections and is set out to carry the following objectives:
:-To help in land information sharing and exchange between agencies using the latest on-line information technology hence the latest and correct information can be conveyed quickly and reliably.
:-To avoid wastage due to uncoordinated efforts in collecting, processing, maintaining, preparing and distributing of land information that is needed for the land planning,land usage monitoring and environment supervision."
The existence of MaCGDI is to put in place a workable geospatial data infrastructure in Malaysia. Public agencies, in particular land related agencies are expected to work in close collaboration with MaCGDI. In short, the success of MaCGDI's development will depend on the assistance and collaboration with stakeholders.
