Previous Experience relevant for INSPIRE development:
LPS (formerly OSNI) developed one of the first geographic information strategies in the UK. The Strategy, originally named "Mosaic" (now the GI Strategy for Northern Ireland) made significant progress in setting up the governance to facilitate greater data sharing and cooperation. A Geoportal (GeoHub NI®) for Northern Ireland was launched on the 12th June 2008 to facilitate data sharing (www.geohubni.gov.uk), this is currently being populated with numerous data sets that fall across the three INSPIRE annexes.
The GI strategy produced in 2003 has subsequently been reviewed with the aim of enhancing the strategy to encompass INSPIRE and plan a way forward for the next 10 years (2009 - 2019). The new strategy can be downloaded from http://www.gistrategyni.gov.uk/
