Using balanced scorecard for evaluation of spatial data infrastructures : a case study in accordance with INSPIRE

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

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 evaluating Swedish
NSDI where the SDI implementation is defined as a long-term project.
