eGovernment and autoritative public data in Denmark are still mainly focused on the landside of Danmark. But the need to eloborate the coordinating effort of administration at sea is recognised and the development of maritime eGovernment is happening within the next years. This paper discusses the data involved in this administration and focuses on the need to understand the function and hence value of data. Some maritime data contain accurate placements of objects, and, as a tricky part, some are dealing with floating placement. Other data show non-visible areas in terms of zoning, e.g. planning and interest areas and finally some data are representation of legislation, whether it is rights or restrictions. Th ese diff erent data are not always usable in the same manner. This paper investigates the correlation between spatial data and legislation. Experience from many years of land administration can be used as part of this discussion, furthermore, the conclusions from this paper provide input for the ongoing development on land.
