Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the personal motives for participation in formal standardization processes for geographic information. The method involved interviewing the members of technical committees at the Swedish Standards Institute, SIS. The results are the majority of the interviewees are very motivated in their work and they think their participation is well financed by their organizations allocating them to a technical committee. The main motives are to contribute to development of society and be in the forefront of development. However, this study also showed that the several of the members participating in this study felt that they do not have sufficient time for working with tasks related to their technical committees. Their daily work in their respective organizations has often higher priority in relation to standardization work. This is in contrast with the organizational goals of the participating organizations and may slow down the development of standards and other publications due to lack of resources.
