The chapter presents the geospatial indicators. Over the last 10 years, development of spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) has become an important subject being a driving force for the national geospatial strategies and plans, increasing the availability and accessibility of geographic information and the exchange and sharing of spatial data. It has become a necessity to have reliable methods and instruments to assess these SDI initiatives. SDI monitoring and evaluation can provide justification for providing public sources to SDI and a measure of success of SDI strategy. The chapter presents the newly developed Country Geospatial Readiness Index.
