Civil-military Cooperation in Geospatial Information in the Czech Republic

The presentation aims to inform about civil – military cooperation in geospatial information in the Czech Republic. There are two public bodies responsible for the maintenance of geospatial information and products in the Czech Republic. Firstly, there is the national mapping agency – the Land Survey Office – which is responsible for the collection and maintenance of fundamental geospatial information for state public authorities. Secondly, there is the Military Geographic and Hydrometeorologic Office that is reponsible for the maintenance and production of geospatial and cartographic products dedicated to defence and crisis management. Both organisations cooperate within the whole range of geospatial business (geodesy, remote sensing and photogrammetry, GIS).
