Going behind the European requirements by establishing authentic sources

Fran├žois Du Mortier

(Submission #170)


Abstract

Belgium has a long experience with implementing authentic sources (National Register of Persons, Business Register, Crossroad Bank of the Social Security, Vehicle Register). As well, many Belgian public services implemented quite sophisticated digital cartography since many years.

Fairly rapidly, the INSPIRE Directive became an opportunity to go behind both initiatives and create new authentic registers: addresses, buildings and administrative units to mention a few. This required an intense and long term collaboration between many public bodies at federal and regional level.

The first results are promising although the road is still long and full of pitfalls among which limited budget, technical and organisational complexity, interfering regulations like open data and data protection, and different timelines and priorities across public bodies.

This is why the Belgian case is worth a presentation and an exchange of views.
