eSDI-Net+: eSDI-Net+ European Network on Geographic Information Enrichment and Reuse

Bring together SDI key players and target users in a Network for communication and exchange of best practices in the creation and use of SDI’s.

The enrichment of geographical data by semantically well-defined metadata and the widespread implementation of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI), allowing extensive Geographic Information (GI) reuse, will solve today’s problems of accessibility and re-use of GI. The objective of eSDI-Net+ is to bring together existing SDI key players and target users in a Thematic Network to be established as a platform for communication and exchange between different stakeholders involved in the creation and use of SDI’s. The network will promote high-level decisions, low-level technical discussion and information exchange, in order to increase awareness concerning the importance of GI enrichment and of SDI’s for GI reuse, to allow an integrated view of the experts and to permit the creation of integrated guidelines, standards, and implementation of best practices. Within the network, communication mechanisms between the European and local levels will be implemented to maximize the benefits of INSPIRE, GMES and GALILEO, regarding digital GI content.

With eSDI-Net+, multicultural and multilingual aspects in accessing, exploiting, using, and reusing digital GI content in Europe will be addressed. As a result, the project will contribute to achieving interoperability between national digital collections and services (e.g. through common standards) and facilitating access and use of the material in a multilingual context.

The eSDI-Net+ intends to be the catalyser of different initiatives, actions and services based on GI.
