Introduction
My professional career is tied to the Polish Geological Institute (PGI). I initiate and lead the NATO project "Sustainable Use and Protection of Groundwater Resources Trans-boundary Water Management". I was a member of the working group for data specifications for the INSPIRE Directive. In 2013 I was appointed the Head of PGI International Cooperation Division and since 2015 I act as Deputy Director, Geoinformation Director. I am the author of numerous articles, books and presentations.

Wykorzystanie zasobów danych administracji publicznej w tworzeniu nowych możliwości w zakresie zarządzania informacją poprzez sieci semantyczne
Article
Full-text available
The efficient geological data management in Poland is necessary to support multilevel decision processes for government and local authorities in case of spatial planning, mineral resources and groundwater supply and the rational use of subsurface. Vast amount of geological information gathered in the digital archives and databases of Polish Geologi...
Presentation
Full-text available
Increasing demand for groundwater data used in decision support processes as well as stress on groundwater being in many cases a main source of drinking water make it important as a part of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). Processing and management of groundwater data need understanding and proper definition of aquifer system concept. The modern...
Article
Full-text available
The great variety of information, possibilities of spatial analyses, implementation and open access to public data have become solid foundation to establish the new information society in the 21st century. Information must be valid, reliable and accessible. The majority of thematic geological data providing by Polish Geological Institute is now ava...
Article
Full-text available
Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute, acting as a Hydrogeological Survey of Poland (PSH), is largely responsible for the process of hydrogeological data collecting, processing and dissemination at the national level. The paper gives a brief description of formal procedures and regulations for running that process and main types...

Nowadays policy changes in geodata governance are observed in many countries in Europe. Open data governance approach imported from US, where it was introduced in the first decade of XXI century, could have important influence on geodata market in EU. Some countries in EU changed their direction form licensed data towards open data solution. This w...
Conference Paper

The recent rapid developments in internet technology along with growth of teleinformation infrastructure and adaptation of new technologies, made access to information published on the internet much easier and, in result, attracted large numbers of new users. Dispersed data resources administrated by different institutional bodies may be useful for...
Article
Full-text available
The spatial information infrastructure Act of 4 March 2010 imposes the obligation to create, update and share metadata by the administration bodies responsible for keeping public records that contain data sets indicated in the Act as well as by third parties responsible for the data sets of the infrastruc- ture. Metadata play a special role in the...
Book
Full-text available
In recent decades, the importance of groundwater for the economy and in particular for its supply to the population grew significantly. The management of water resources requires multi disciplinary and multi functional approaches. The situation becomes even more complex when a river basin or an aquifer is of a transboundary nature. Until 2009 there...
Chapter
The analysis of the history of water conflicts which have inseparably accompanied the development of our civilisation indicates many interesting trends. Most countries have transboundary waters in their territory, which gave rise to various conflicts at a smaller or greater scale in the past. Observations and analyses of examples from Middle East,...
Article
Full-text available
In general understanding, registers that belong to the National Geodetic and Cartographic Resource are reference data sets. However, also data obtained and processed in line with accepted standards and guidelines within the framework of tasks of leading authorities competent for particular INSPIRE themes may and should be considered as core data (s...

The present paper represents the first part of the program on Integrated Environmental Evaluation of Western Buh River Basin (Ukraine and Poland) and it was prepared in the framework of the UNIDO project “Ecological conditions of the basin of the Western Buh River: cause-and-effect analysis and transboundary influence.
Chapter
Water is of fundamental significance for biodiversity and the protection of water resources is extremely important for the equilibrium in the environment. Water protection is also a key element of human existence; therefore, it is the highest priority under the European Union legislation. In accordance with the Water Framework Directive, water is n...

The communities participating in the INSPIRE implementation, tested and evaluated the draft versions of annex II and III themes data specifications in the period of 4 months, from June to October 2011. In Poland, similarly as in other countries of the European Union , the scope of these works was broad. The Polish Council for Spatial Information In...
Article
Full-text available
Spatial Data Infrastructure creation and pursuit of interoperability understood as communication between the geoinformation systems requires multidimensional view at spatial data resources already produced. Complete description of various domains, including geology and hydrogeology, requires preparing conceptual models to achieve comprehensive and...
Article
Full-text available
One of the most important components of INSPIRE data specifications for the theme Geology (Annex II) describes groundwater (aquifers) issues. Hydrogeology is a practical scientific domain and in the context of INSPIRE directive is characterized by much larger number of links to other thematic domains in comparison to the geology domain itself. In t...

Prace nad Europejską Infrastrukturą Danych Przestrzennych (European Spatial Data Infrastructure – ESDI) wkraczają obecnie w decydującą fazę. Zespoły robocze INSPIRE przygotowuj specyfikację danych tematycznych dla Aneksu II i III dyrektywy. Wśród nich podejmowane są zagadnienia istotne dla geologów i hydrogeologów. Zapisy zawarte w specyfikacjach d...
Article
Works on European Spatial Data Infrastructure (ESDI) are now encroaching on the crucial phase. INSPI RE working teams prepare Data Specifications for Annex II and III. There are the important issues for geologists and hydrogeologists. The records contained in data specifications are intended to prepare basic model of geological and hydrogeological...
Article
In times of globalization and increasing competition between different sectors of the economy within the access to natural resources, including clean water sources what is a direct consequence of the process where all borders disappear, the transnational issues are becoming increasingly important. More than 10 years history of Water Framework Direc...
Presentation
Full-text available
Water is crucial medium for human life and living quality. Groundwater resources will be of increasing significance for the domestic economy in the future, because surface waters - the main water source used by humans over ages - become progressively more contaminated. Now in Poland 70% of water use is based on groundwater. The history of interest...
Article
Full-text available
Works on preparation of spatial data specification for the annexes II and III of the INSPIRE Directive will determine the shape of spatial information infrastructure in Europe. Geology and mineral resour- ces (GE&MR) themes, combined into one thematic working group (TWG), are among the issues developed. The TWG works focus on identification of exis...
Conference Paper
