The effective management of electronic information is one of the cornerstones for an effective e-government development. Among the prominent activities in Sweden in recent years is the increasingly intense attempt to merge all information flows in a city or municipality, in attempt to create one point access for citizens. This requires a lot of work to transform the e-services that were created under stovepipe structures, into integrated, searchable e-services meant to cater for the whole organization and society. The paper argues that lack of a holistic approach to information management is likely to counteract the investments that are currently being made in e-government and therefore, hamper the effective use of information. This paper focuses on one of the main types of information, which supplies almost all other system - geodata. It also highlights the fact that long-term preservation of geodata is still an omnipresent challenge despite technological advancements and that most public organisation like the municipalities have not yet found a solution to the preservation of their geodata resources.
