The creation of an SDI is a common task of all public administrations, organizations and companies, both public and private, as well as professionals and citizens who want to participate. Its scope is universal, as is the Internet, although today it is necessary organizations that promote and support, at different territorial and administrative levels, the process.
Under the initiative of the different levels of public administrations, these organizations have been established throughout Europe: European infrastructure (INSPIRE), the Spanish one (IDEE) and those of other Member States, the Catalan one (IDEC) among other regional initiatives, and different local initiatives, such as in Catalonia, the IDEBarcelona (promoted by Barcelona Provincial Council), the Geoportal BCN (promoted by the BCN City Council), the IDE of Sant Cugat del Vallés and others that are in preparation.
