It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Malaysia Geoportal (MyGeoportal), the official portal of Malaysian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (MyGDI). It is my hope that this portal will very much facilitate our visitors in getting the latest information related to geospatial activities, both domestic and internationally as well. MyGDI as the National Geospatial Data Infrastructure (NGDI) is developed and coordinated by the Malaysian Centre for Geospatial Data Infrastructure (MaCGDI), under the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources (KATS).
MyGDI is a national program initiated by the government to provide and facilitate geospatial information sharing infrastructure, to enhance the awareness on the geospatial information availability and to improve the access to geospatial information among participating parties. MyGDI comprises of the development of policies, standards, geodata, technology, research and development (R & D) and human resource development program in the geospatial field. The main objective of this program is to assist agencies in planning, development and management by using and sharing of current, accurate and reliable geospatial information and to avoid duplication of effort in the collection and production of geospatial information. As such, through this infrastructure, smart partnership among agencies is continuously being developed to assist all parties in sharing and accessing geospatial information seamlessly. Thus, those will directly enhance the public service delivery system.
In addition, MyGeoportal interactively provides access to various of geospatial services such as on-line access to metadata catalogue/directory via MyGDI Explorer and Malaysia Geospatial Online Services (MyGOS) as well as links to geospatial initiatives by various parties in Malaysia and other foreign countries. This portal will be constantly maintained and updated to ensure only relevant and up-to-date information being published. Therefore, this portal will become a useful source of reference for its visitors.
On behalf of MaCGDI, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Federal, State, Local Authority and the private sector agencies on continued contribution and cooperation in strengthening the development of national geospatial data infrastructure, the MyGDI.
Finally, I would like to thank to everyone who are willing to spend your time visiting our MyGeoportal. I do hope that this portal will be beneficial, informative and insightful to everyone.
