Cloud computing is an IT resource providing technology to various users by using virtualization technology. Newly updated spatial information may not be used by other organizations since management authorities are dispersed for Korean public spatial information. Further, the national budget is wasted since each organization independently implements renewable GIS analysis function. These problems can be solved by applying cloud service. However, research related to the application of cloud service to Korea spatial information system has been proposed in the technology development direction, and no detailed development plan has been proposed. In this paper, we deal with the establishment of a technology development plan for national spatial information infrastructure cloud service. First, we deduct the implication to derive the technology development goals by analyzing the political and technical environment. Second, technology and critical technology elements are derived to achieve the goals of the specialist's analysis based on the evaluation elements. As a result, thirteen critical technology elements are derived. Finally, thirty-one research activities, which comprise the critical technology elements, are defined. Critical technology elements and research activities derived in this research will be used for the generation of a technology development road-map.
