Organized by the State Geodetic Administration, as the National Contact Point of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI), three NSDI workshops (19, 20 and 21) were held on 2, 3 and 4 February 2021 with the aim of strengthening human capacities required for the inclusion of local and regional self-government units in the NSDI. Virtual workshops were held as part of the project "Capacity Building for the Establishment of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure" co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF).

Educational NSDI workshops entitled "Inclusion in the National Spatial Data Infrastructure" were held in the form of webinars and were intended for local and regional self-government units from Varaždin, Međimurje, Koprivnica-Križevci, Krapina-Zagorje, Zagreb, Bjelovar-Bilogora, Virovitica-Podravina, Osijek-Baranja and Vukovar-Srijem counties and the City of Zagreb, in which a total of 126 participants participated.

On behalf of the State Geodetic Administration, the workshop was opened by Antonio Šustić, deputy director general, Ljerka Marić, MSc, Head of the Spatial Data Infrastructure Sector and Tomislav Ciceli, MsC, Head of the NSDI Division.

Lectures on the topic "NSDI Metadata Catalog/NSDI Geoportal" and "GeoHrvatska" were held by Iva Gašparović, PhD, Senior Advisor - Specialist in the Spatial Data Infrastructure Sector. In these lectures the procedures for entering metadata of spatial data sources after entry in the NSDI Register through the NSDI Geoportal application were explained. The importance of data validation, data care and regular updating of entered metadata was emphasized, and the GeoHrvatska portal was presented, which in a simple, mobile and intuitive way, using the official spatial data of NSDI subjects, enables the user to get to know and explore the space that surrounds him with the help of the current location.
