A co-operation project on "Capacity Building for Development of European-type Geo-information Management Infrastructure in the Geological Sector of Ukraine" is implemented by the Geological Survey of Finland together with the State Geological and Subsurface Survey of Ukraine and the Ukrainian State Geological Research Institute. The project is funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. The project started in 2011 and will be completed by the end of 2013. The overall objective of the project is to enhance accessibility of geo-information in Ukraine by setting up web-portal (in Ukrainian and English languages) based on the open data. Several type of geological information can be easily accessed through the portal by wide range of users. The main concept for the institutional capacity building in creating new type information management and digital processing of spatial data using GIS software is based on on-the-job training. The transfer of know-how is implemented by a number of partner organisation experts working together for variable periods of time both in Finland and in Ukraine. This way of implementation is believed to produce sustainable growth and skills for further development of systems.
