|Title: ||A development of the Geographical Information Projects Index in line with the Scottish Geographic Information Strategy: “One Scotland One Geography.”|
|Authors: ||Bruce, David|

|Abstract: ||In 2006, a partnership between The University of Edinburgh, The Scottish Government and The Association of Geographic Information in Scotland lead to the production of an online service designed to encourage diffusion of knowledge across the Scottish GI community and beyond.
The project, part of the “One Scotland One Geography” initiative, aimed to create a service whereby metadata about projects could be shared in order to create synergies and reduce repetition across the GI community. The purpose of this project was to review and enhance a prototype Geographical Information Projects Registry (GIPR) to create a self-sustaining user-driven service. The resource exists as a database driven website which is accessed via the World Wide Web (WWW). The service can be found at www.gisprojects.net.
The project aims to provide a more intelligent, user-driven website which requires little or no administration. The project aims to achieve this through highlighting synergies, using new methods to keep the database current and by providing alternative techniques of keeping users informed of new information obtained by the registry.|
