Act on the geodetic reference systems, networks and geo-topographical reference data of the Federal Government (Bundesgeoreferenzdatengesetz - BGeoRG) BGeoRG Ausfertigung date: 10.05.2012 full quotation: "Bundesgeoreferenzdatengesetz by May 10, 2012 (Federal Law Gazette I S. 1081)" footnote (+++ text detection from: 1.11.2012 +++) § 1 scope of application (1) this law applies for the geodetic reference systems, reference networks and geo-topographical reference data of the Federal Government and within the framework of the rights to the data of official surveying and geo-topographical reference data by third parties. Should the authorities of federal and countries as well as the economy, society, and science in the required quality for which the geo data access Act of February 10, 2009 (Federal Law Gazette I p. 278) and this law be provided controlled uses.
(2) the geo-data holding bodies of the Federation to ensure that the quality and technical specifications for the collected from you or created geo-topographical reference data and the associated metadata, as well as for geodetic reference systems and networks are respected so that a simple exchange and a wide use of sentence 2 are guaranteed pursuant to paragraph 1.
Article 2 definitions 1 Geotopographische reference data are geo data that describe the geographical topography application-neutral in a unified geodetic reference system or map.
2. geodetic reference systems are coordinate systems, describe the location, height and gravity information in time and space. They are implemented by geodetic reference networks.
3. spatial data models are data models, which describe the landscape application-neutral after uniform modeling requirements by GEO-topographical reference data. They are implemented by digital landscape models.
4. cartographic models are representations that geo-topographical reference data mapped demonstrates required. They are implemented through maps in digital and analog form. Representations of spatial topography are produced by remote sensing.
§ 3 Federal Agency for cartography and Geodesy (1) the Federal Agency for cartography and Geodesy is an independent federal authority in the Division of the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
(2) the Federal Agency for cartography and Geodesy's mission is to raise geodetic reference systems and networks as well as geo-topographical reference data of the Federal Government for use by federal authorities and towards the European Union law and international commitments of in Germany, process and use, do not fall within the jurisdiction of other federal agencies. While the availability of geodetic reference systems and networks, as well as the GEO-topographical reference data from Germany and other Member States of the European Union shall be ensured.
(3) the Federal Agency has the following duties: 1 preparation, updating and provision of spatial and location data to the description of the objects of the Earth's surface and the further development of this necessary procedures and methods, 2. provision and maintenance of the national parent geodetic reference networks, including the surveying and theoretical services required for the extraction and processing of measured data, 3 participation in bilateral and multilateral work to set up and maintain global geodetic reference systems and networks as well as the development of used measuring and monitoring technology , 4 coordination of construction and expansion, as well as maintaining the federal contribution of spatial data infrastructure for Germany, 5. operation of a services centre of the Covenant, which assumes the coordination of geodetic reference systems and networks as well as geo-topographical reference data of the Federal Government, raises the need for spatial data, makes it available via a geo-portal or other demand-oriented technology and supports federal agencies in the standards-compliant development and use of spatial data services , 6 representing of Germany's professional interests at European and international level, including the participation in the preparation of civilian programs and legislation, as well as on the methodological and technical preparation and harmonization of geodetic and cartographic products.
§ 4 more leading geo-topographical reference data leading bodies of the Federation Geotopographische reference data of the Federal Government are those federal agencies, collect, process, and use the GEO-topographical reference data of the Federal Government. The GEO-topographical reference data as well as geodetic reference systems and networks of the Association are, as far as they do not fall within the competence of the Federal Agency for cartography and geodesy, the other geo-topographical reference data leading bodies of the Federation for use by Federal Government and European Union law and international obligations of Germany collected, processed and used.
Article 5 Exchange between authorities (1) providing geo-data holding bodies of the Federation are themselves access to the existing for the performance of their public duties or provided geo-topographical reference data.
(2) the GEO-topographical reference data will continue Federal require each other no consideration for the provision of geo-topographical reference data of the Federal, as long as their use for the performance of public duties of non-economic nature.
§ 6 technical guidelines of the Interministerial Committee for geo information engineering (1) the geo-data holding bodies of the Federation, which collect geo-topographical reference data or create, have to meet the quality and technical requirements according to § 1 paragraph 2 after the State of the art. Compliance with the State of the art is believed to have if the technical guidelines of the Interministerial Committee for geo information engineering in the both in the electronic Federal Gazette *) are respected in the published version.
(2) the Inter-Ministerial Committee for geo information engineering is empowered, by mutual agreement in technical regulations 1 the quality and technical requirements for the federal authorities to use parent geodetic reference systems to set, in particular: a) the applicable national, European Union law and international technical standards, b) the geodetic date and the type of coordinate figure and the description of the coordinate transformations between different geodetic date specifications, c) quality requirements , d) the establishment, deployment, to determine the quality and technical specifications maintenance and the density and spatial delimitation of the geodetic benchmark field, 2. in federal agencies to use geo-topographical reference data, which are described in a unified geodetic reference system, in particular a) spatial data models, b) cartographic models, c) remote sensing products in accordance with § 2 number 4 sentence 3, d) requirements concerning the quality, e) spatial delimitation and f) technical deployment , and 3 to the geo-data services of the Federal Government to set the quality and technical requirements for optimal networking (interoperability) and determine what the GEO-topographical reference data of the Federal Government, alone or in conjunction with other data in electronic form be made accessible to.
The specifications of quality and technical specifications is carried out with the agreement of the surveying authorities of the States. To ensure Union legally and internationally applicable standards may be further provisions in consultation with the surveying authorities of the States.
(3) for the geodetic reference networks as well as the GEO-topographical reference data are the nature and periodicity of Historicizing the guidelines document. In addition, the Federal Archives Act applies.
(4) the technical guidelines are in the electronic Federal Gazette *) to publish.
