Also, the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan signed the law “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on geodesy, cartography and spatial data.”
The laws spell out the rules on the creation and development of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure. This platform aims to make digital data accessible and more efficient, as well as to develop and keep it up to date. To do this, the law regulates the frequency of updating these data. In addition, the law also provides for improving the availability and quality of services provided to the population in the field of land relations, architecture, construction, nature management and environmental protection, geology, housing and communal services and agriculture. The new norms introduce improved mechanisms for activities in the field of spatial data, geodesy and cartography. A legal framework will be formed for the creation and use of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure. This infrastructure enables consumers to access and use electronic data effectively. We are confident that in the future, complete, accurate spatial data, geodesy and cartography systems will have a positive impact on the speed of information processing and rational decision-making in the sectors of the economy and public administration,” said Maulen Ashimbaev, Speaker of the Senate of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan, commenting on the adoption of laws.
