Abstract. Organizations operating in geosector in the Republic of Serbia are gathered around a common goal – the establishment of geodata infrastructure at the national level. State of play was done as one of the tasks in order to conduct proper planning and establishment. Questionnaire included 80 organizations from all levels of government, public enterprises, academic institutions, and other entities doing business with geodata. Results were statistically presented and the expert analysis was conducted with recommendations for further development. Basic technical and staff capacity of the geosector organizations in general are on satisfactory level, while a few leading authorities are significantly stands out and they are also major holders of production and distribution of the geodata. Existing production is a solid base for the further development as most of geodata sets have digital form, state coordinate system, and to a great extent already participating in the exchange. Elimination of the production overlapping and improvement of sharing are the main fields to be addressed. Defining, introduction and implementation of the standards, as well as more intensive activities on implementation of metadata are key factors of the improvement of geosector conditions. Referent data defining with corresponding national sources and stable financing will additionally introduce favorable conditions for the geosector development. Stated results and recommendations are only part of the comprehensive examination, which is presented in this paper.

Keywords. National Spatial Data Infrastructure, INSPIRE, geodata, geosector
