National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) is the backbone of the development of e-government for a country. Since 2011, Vietnam began to pay attention to NSDI. Till now, the is no significant progress in implementation of NSDI except a common research between World Bank and Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment on strategic planning of NSDI and another research on making policy for building NSDI. In this paper, we present our research on the construction of the Local SDI (LSDI) for the Northeast and the Northwest of Vietnam. Our hypothesis is that the success of this LSDI will be a good lesson for building NSDI in the future. The reason why we selected the Northeast and Northwest because it is a large area with a total area of approximately 115,700km2 that is nearly 1/3 of Vietnam. Moreover, the Northeast and the Northwest comprehensively contain of topographical and morphological characteristics of nature, economics and society of Vietnam. NSDI is considered consisting of seven components: (i) spatial data; (ii) standards; (iii) Access to data; (iv) technology; (v) policy – legislation; (vi) organization – institution; (vii) partnership. In this research we only focused on four technical components which are spatial data, standards, access to data and technology. We collected spatial data from three sources: (i) existing spatial data and framework spatial data from Government and Local Government; (ii) existing remote sensing data from the NASA, USGS; (iii) Update remote sensing data from MODIS/NPP ground station at our university. We used open source platforms for building LSDI. Regarding to the access to data, we have organized spatial data in a data warehouse architecture to develop BI (Business Intelligence) tools. A pilot tool is for automatically generating annual reports on 43 indicators of sustainable development issued by the Prime Minister. For the future work, we will evaluate this LSDI from the viewpoints of end-users from government, local government and citizens.
