GEO-Government in Baden-Wuerttemberg – Strategy on INSPIRE-Coordinates, Nodes and Standards

Dieter Hess

(Submission #373)


Baden-Wuerttemberg is a region in the south west of Germany with 10,8 million people, an area of 35.752 km² and hundreds of state authorities and municipalities. Baden-Wuerttemberg agreed on a strategic plan to “inspire“ the E-Government by geodata. The INSPIRE coordinate reference system ETRS89/UTM is introduced in 2018 as original reference system for all geodata in the region as a precondition of a high quality edge-matched spatial database for cross-domain and cross-border applications. Building up common thematic INSPIRE provider nodes for all authorities is a key action to increase the usage of INSPIRE and lower the investment for INSPIRE – also beyond INSPIRE for the whole E-Government. Common standards are necessary for the nodes providing data of all thematic stakeholders. Current example is building up a node for spatial planning for more than 1.000 towns and villages. The Geodata based E-Government pushing Open Government principles (GEO-Government) is one key element in the overall digitalization strategy of the Government of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
