Two projects that have allowed to evolve the geographic information management in the Government of Uruguay are presented. Both projects are based on the gvSIG Suite technologies, a catalog of open source software solutions where gvSIG Online is included, a product aimed at the Spatial Data Infrastructures implementation.
The first of these projects is the implementation of the Uruguay Spatial Data Infrastructure, highlighting the volume of data that it is composed of and the technological improvements developed to meet the project requirements. The second one is the project for the implementation of a new Central Address System in the country, also based on gvSIG Online where a system for the maintenance of street maps by the municipalities (local administrations) has been implemented.
