The business plan comes up with detailed recommendations and spells out the necessary steps for the development and implementation of a metadata portal by the NCA. When successfully implemented, the metadata portal can grow into a source for the national metadata portal, which will help users in their daily search for Belarusian spatial data. Currently, the NCA already possesses the knowledge and skills to develop such a portal.
