As responsible for development of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure, Denmarks National Survey and Cadastre has developed a value-based methodology that integrates technical, organisational, value and stakeholder factors. This methodology has been used as a basis for assessing modifications to geodatabases.

This presentation explores the incorporation of standardised methodology in value based decision-making about modifying geodatabases. This will be illustrated by examples of analytical methods and standardised tools for value-based decision making.

Value-based decisions require preparatory analyses of working conditions and the values associated with them. These analyses often include locating responsibility for the process within the organisation, developing standardised and documented business practices and establishing a communications strategy.

The value analysis itself is fundamental, as it is here that stakeholders needs, definitions, and perspectives are integrated with economic, technical and resource constraints.
