Abstract: The SENSOR project is developing a sustainability impact assessment tool (SIAT) for landscape multifunctionality. This tool is dependent on sufficient, reliable and accurate data that have to be provided and shared by the partners within the project. Access to reliable and harmonised data across Europe is a fundamental precondition for realisation of the project and interoperability and open architectures are core requirements for state of the art implementations of IT solutions. This chapter describes basic issues regarding geo-spatial data types and formats, the state of the art of GIS-based data management with respect to system architecture, database technologies, interoperability standards, INSPIRE principles, data warehouseing and GeoPortal technologies. Further some information is given on spatial data mining, data policies and related legal aspects. Finally the SENSOR approach for spatial data handling is discussed.
