Previous Experience relevant for INSPIRE development:
SDIGER pilot project for INSPIRE
This project, supported by EUROSTAT aims at the construction of a cross-border inter-administration multi-lingual Spatial Data Infrastructure to support WFD (Water Framework Directive) information access for Adour-Garonne and Ebro River basins. IGN France is coordinator; it also provides national core data (administrative units, roads networks, railways network, watercourse network, place names), will provide a servers node of the SDI scenario in Paris for basic core data of France, and also host in its Toulouse regional agency a node managed by GIS-ECOBAG association and providing specialized hydrological models, will collect data accessible to the developed multilingual gazetteer for the French area, will be responsible for the common object oriented model and of the configuration of the servers in the server data architecture, will be main responsible of the internet application that will enable seamless use of the various map services, contribute to the business plan for implanting INSPIRE at European level, be responsible for the maintenance of the nodes located in France, and will be main responsible in producing the report and related documentation for the application scenario.
IGN France International participates in the European Topic Center on Terrestrial Environment as principal contributor (3 experts out of 4) on the production of the CORINE Land cover database 2000 (formation, control of quality…) as well as active on water, noise, urban zones.

IGN France was actively involved in this assessment of the coastal erosion in Europe, and is now active in the MESSINA gap bridging project on the same domain.
This is a project from EuroGeographics, a 1/250K data base. IGN France is responsible for coordination on a large area in western and southern Europe.
This is a project from EuroGeographics, a topographic 1/1000K data base of 35 European countries that is suitable to support the European’s Commission Water Framework Directive

This project initiated thanks to the eContent program is now a project from EuroGeographics (Seamless Administrative Boundaries for Europe) is a database covering 35 European countries and the whole European union, in 2 scales: 1/100K and 1/1000K.
The EuroSpec program from EuroGeographics is an umbrella program. IGN France is deeply involved in EuroSpec, having representatives in the information and data specification core team, distributed system architecture core team, EuroBoundaries administrative issues team, EuroRoads work programs (see below).

This project aims at delivering a set of « definitive » points for national boundaries at the highest possible scale, with precision 1 meter or better in the ETRS89 system and starts with a feasibility study.
This project aims at building a platform for road data solutions throughout Europe through a framework of specifications consisting of a roads data structure, a data content description, data exchange mechanisms and interoperability specifications. IGN France participates in 3 of the 9 actions of the project, namely WP6 (road data specification framework), WP5 (user requirements) and WP2 (evaluation, quality and control).
