The NATIONAL GEOINFORMATION CENTER (NGIC) is a newly established scientific infrastructure for cooperation and integration of human resources, informational products and data from monitoring networks and observatories, their complex analysis and implementation into services to the community. It is part of the National road map for scientific infrastructure (2017-2023), adopted by the Council of Ministers of Bulgaria. NGIC is a distributed infrastructure with national territorial coverage and incorporates monitoring networks, observatories, observation stations, laboratories, computing centers and other specialized equipment of the participating partners. The partners joined in the research consortium are four institutes working in the field of Earth observation: the National Institute of Geophysics, Geodesy and Geography (NIGGG), the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology (NIMH), the Institute of Oceanology (IO), the Geological Institute (GI), and two institutes competent in ICT: the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics (IMI) and the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Using all the initial capacity which partners have, NGIC will strive to provide permanent access to geo information, to deliver reliable data and services for the geo-environment and to support the effective prevention from natural and anthropogenic disasters and industrial accidents.
