Abstract
Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) have been identified essential for

environmental management and development activities around the world.

Meanwhile, development of frameworks to monitor and evaluate SDIs is currently

an important research area. This study proposes Balanced Scorecard (BSC) as a

framework for evaluation and monitoring the implementation of SDIs. The

concept and advantages of BSC for strategy implementation is described in the

paper. Furthermore, a general framework for the evaluation of Swedish NSDI in

line with the INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) directive is

depicted. The case study shows that BSC is applicable for... (More)
