Advantages of IDERD
Thanks to the Spatial Data Infrastructure of the Dominican Republic, the high costs for the collection and production of information are avoided, avoiding at the same time the duplication of efforts in the institutions and an expense to the Dominican State.
Thanks to the data present in the IDERD, governments (central and local) can define territorial policies that rely heavily on a geographic base.
The IDERD facilitates access to geographic information, so that any organization or user can have access and use it for evaluation and making decisions based on spatial data.
The private sector can benefit from the IDERD, thanks to the geolocated information available in repositories and catalogs, using them to improve market and client’s awareness, to create better marketing strategies.
The academic sector will achieve a deep and accurate knowledge of the current problems of society, focusing their research so that they aim to solve or mitigate social problems.
