Approaches to Increase Adoption and Use of INSPIRE

Marten Hogeweg and satish sankaran

(Submission #212)


Across the INSPIRE community, it has become increasingly clear that simply providing data access at national levels, whether via downloadable files or ‘live’ web services, while possible and happening, does not guarantee adoption or visibility of the program. More needs to be done to put the available data to use and to engage more stakeholders.

At a global level, the United Nations Statistical Division (UNSD) has achieved significant success in its stated Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Together with UNSD, Esri and an initial group of countries defined requirements and implemented a federated web mapping and data management platform that provides access to dashboards, open API, narratives (storymaps), and applications that fully operationalize the SDG data.

At a local level, Esri has had the opportunity to engage with many cities and municipalities using technologies such as HUB and Open Data that encourage stakeholder involvement through formal and informal mechanisms such as crowd sourcing.

This presentation will look at patterns and technologies that have been employed at the global and local levels to achieve increased adoption and use.
