Abstract: As a response to the growing interest in assessing Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) the
Multi-view SDI assessment framework has been proposed. The Multi-view SDI
assessment framework collects multiple assessment approaches and methods with the
aim to assess many different aspects of SDI in a comprehensive and unbiased way. Despite
the potential strengths of the framework, its complex design raises concerns about its
usability and applicability for SDI assessment. In this article we evaluate the application of
the Multi-view SDI assessment framework. In addition, we ask the potential users of the
framework to evaluate its applicability to assess SDIs. The results show that the
framework could be applied to 21 National SDIs. Evaluation of the application process
reveals that the completeness of assessment data and time needed to measure indicators
depends strongly on the assessment methods used. It is recommended to use those methods
that need less time to measure assessment indicators. The results also show that a
significant part of the measurements could not be done due to survey questions not being
filled in by the respondents. The results also show that the users tend to agree with the
applicability of the Multi-view SDI assessment framework to assess SDIs.
