Important things that need to be pointed out are the presentation of draft version of NSDI Strategy which was adopted unanimously. It was concluded that the report on the implementation of NSDI for 2016 will be submitted to the Government. The Work plan of the Council for 2017 and the restructuring plan for the workgroups has also been unanimously adopted.

The need to involve local government units in the NSDI has been recognized, and a couple of methods were proposed which would on the political level encourage the local government to apply its spatial data in NSDI as they are required by the NSDI law (NN 56/13).
