The collection of information about potential use is extremely difficult, because there is no systematic way to ask the 'non-users' and the 'not-yet' users why they are not using geographic information. As part of the European Territorial Management Information Infrastructure (ETeMII) the Institute for Geoinformation of the Technical University in Vienna Austria conducted a German workshop on user's needs for basic spatial data in Salzburg, Austria on 6 July 2000. In addition to the workshop report where, as indicated by the participants, the need for metadata and policies is mostly stressed, we offer in this paper some observations collected through discussions with various providers, consultants and software companies from the German speaking community.
