Abstract: Geographic information is increasingly being shared by many users across different fields and applications. Due to the new, widely available and easy-to-use data collection instruments and information publishing facilities the reliability of data, which is tightly coupled with its quality becomes of paramount interest. The notion of data quality is being transformed ¿ in addition to addressing the a priori requirements for data production the need for reporting the fitness for use has opened a new approach. The latter is especially pertinent in the context of Spatial Data and Information Infrastructures (SDIs). Even though the term data quality seems to be trivial, its discussion is rather difficult because of the assumptions, incoherent use of terminology and the diverging points of view. The paper will enlighten aspects of data quality from point of view of users and data producers both in the context of data production and SDIs emphasising similarities and differences. A possible way of dealing with data quality in SDIs will be described using the example of INSPIRE
