In this study, a standard vector data model was developed for interoperability of river-geospatial information and for verification purpose the applicability of the standard vector model was evaluated using a model to RIMGIS vector data at Changnyeong-Hapcheon & Gangjung-Goryeong irrigation watershed. The standards from ISO and OGC were analyzed and the river geospatial data model standard was established by applying the standards. The ERD was designed based on the analysis information on data characteristics and relationship. The verification of RIMGIS vector data included points, lines and polygon to develope GDM was carried out by comparing with the data by layer. This conducting comparison of basic spatial data and attribute data to each record and spatial information vertex. The error in the process of conversion was 0 %, indicating no problem with model. Our Geospatial Data Model presented in this study provides a new and consistent format for the storage and retrieval of river geospatial data from connected database. It is designed to facilitators integrated analysis of large data sets collected by multiple institutes.
