For the purpose of urban and economic development of the city, the local government needs to present within its activities all other structures such as utility infrastructure, economic/business facilities, cultural-historical structures, educational institutions, and other urban and statistical data on the relevant space.

- Preparation and signing of the agreement between the City of Novi Sad and 14 relevant institutions

- Establishment of a permanent working body

- Elaboration of  along-term plan (strategy) for GIS development

- Elaboration of web portal that includes a part of GIS for the investors

- Data digitalisation

- Data verification

- Data entering

- Purchase and instalment of equipment
