ESDIN: Underpinning the European Spatial Data Infrastructure with a Best Practice Network.

A bridge between the theory and the practice — from the INSPIRE Directive towards implementation and usage of interoperable geographical data by Spatially enabled Societies

What's ESDIN?

The European Commission"s ambition to build a European Spatial Data Infrastructure (ESDI) on the National Spatial Data Infrastructures in Member States, for which INSPIRE is the legal instrument, is currently at the conceptual stage. This project will focus on helping Member States, candidate countries and EFTA States prepare their data for INSPIRE Annex I themes and improve access to them. Specifically the project will:

# Aggregate data through development of web based services for several INSPIRE themes at different levels of resolution from the European to the local level;

# Implement services which will support the aggregation of "interoperable" data in a more cost effective and efficient way;

# Build sustainable best practice networks to ensure the organisational development necessary to achieve the goals of the project and its continuation afterwards;

# Spread best practice in the integration of local (large scales) reference information with pan-European (medium/small scales) reference information, and interoperability with other data themes.

# Test INSPIRE Implementing Rules and specifications in a live operational environment and recommend improvements where identified.
