dc.description.abstractOpening a window into the future is not an easy task. Attempting to open one in a generation after the initial launching step might seemed either idealistic, naïve or with hindsight plain driven. An idea that started off in 1995 by Formosa as paralleled by a similar but unconnected effort by Perit Vincent Cassar took two decades to take a semblance of form and structure within an achievable framework. These two steams of though came together in 2013 at the then MEPA which effort sought to push all spatial information within an integrated core that allows Malta to jump from a Data Phase to an Information Phase and over the next years to a Knowledge, Action and Wisdom phased approach. The two proponents converged and the effort took national significance through the SIntegraM concept: a concept that aimed to create a functionality targeting the Spatial Data Integration for the Maltese Islands: Developing Integrated National Spatial Information Capacity – hence the acronym SIntegraM.en_GB
