The concept of development of a multi-resolution database, as a key component of the NSDI appeared in Poland several years ago. The outline of the first ideas in this field was presented, among others, during the previous ICA Conference in La Coruna: SDI in Poland concept of topographic reference system for thematic, harmonized databases (Gotlib, Iwaniak, Olszewski, 2005). In that paper the authors presented the concept of harmonisation of reference databases, existing in Poland, as the first step towards the creation of the MRDB type database. Those concepts resulted in launching the research and implementation Project No. 6 T 12 2005C/06552 Methods and procedures of integration, visualization, generalization and standardization of state geodesic and cartographic resources databases and their usage in creating thematic databases. This Project has been carried out by the Wrocław Academy of Agriculture and it was commissioned by the Ministry of Science and the Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography, in co-operation with five marshal (province) offices. The contractors in the Project are universities, research institutes and GIS laboratories from the State Geological Institute (PIG) and the Office of Forest Management and Forest Geodesy (The Directorate of State Forests). This paper presents the current results of research and implementation works performed within this Project.
