Framework Data Categories

Geodata refers to a well defined fundamental geospatial data categories set up mutually among participating stakeholders. It's represented by customary data categories that users require, as well as environment to support the development and usage of this data on which agencies can create by overlaying their own information and thematic data with framework dataset. Through the mutual conception several government agencies or geospatial industry groups can define reliable data categories to accomplish their common objectives.
This category contains geospatial information related to air transportation such as air space, aerodrome and airport.


  Built Environment
This category contains building, property or place designated for use as premises for residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, educational, religious, recreational, cemetery and built-up structures.


This category holds information on delimitation/delineation of topographic, maritime and cadastral features.


This category includes all geological mapping information and the related geoscience geospatial data including geolithology, mineral, fossils, mining, exploration, and geological features.


This category includes geospatial data on coastal hydrography, shoreline structures, fishing facilities, ports and harbours, navigation aids, danger and hazard, depth information, inland water, river structure, offshore information.


This category contains the geospatial information related to spot heights, contours, altimetric data and gravity data.


This category contains geospatial information related to soil classification such as Histosols, Spodosols, Andisols, Oxisols, Vertisols, Ultisols, Mollisols, Alfisols, Inceptisols and Entisols.


This category contains both land and water transportation geospatial information such as road network, rail line, water route and jetty terminal.


This category contains the geospatial information related to electricity, telecommunication, water supply, oil and gas, broadcasting, sewerage and waste management.


This category includes geospatial data on agricultural land use activities, boundaries and areas of vegetation such as forest, mangrove, wetland, dryland and cropland.


Special Use (Specific Dataset)
This category contains the geospatial information related to terrain analysis dataset, meteorological dataset such as temperature and rainfall isoline, orthorectified images, digital elevation model and geoid surface.


This category includes monumented control points such as geodetic control station, benchmarks, tide station, standard traverse marks, ground control point, gravity station and remote sensing imagery such as aerial photography and satellite imagery
