CANRI provides environmental information.

The Open GIS Consortium, Inc. (OGC), Wayland, Mass., announced that Community Access to Natural Resources Information (CANRI) has joined the OGC Web Services Initiative (OWS).OWS is part of OGC's Interoperability Program, which aims to build an evolutionary, standards-based framework that will enable seamless integration of a variety of online geoprocessing and location services. CANRI is responsible for providing key environmental information over the Web from government agencies and other organizations in New South Wales, Australia.

CANRI works closely with Australia New Zealand Land Information Council (ANZLIC), proponents of the Australian Spatial Data Infrastructure (ASDI). ASDI provides a framework that will allow spatial data of all types to be widely used across all sectors of the Australian community. CANRI and the ASDI Technical Working Group will join 26 other public, private and educational institutions to work on the Web Services Initiative.

Some 50 countries worldwide are working to establish compatible Spatial Data Infrastructures that are helping to establish a Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI, http://www.gsdi.org) according to the GSDI Secretariat.
