Dominik Kopczewski, Abigail Page and Ashley Wright

(Submission #218)


The Open European Location Services project, will deliver European open geospatial data services from official national sources. It will maximize the Use of authoritative geospatial information by providing certainty about what is free, what is charged for and under what terms and conditions. But what is the current position for Open INSPIRE services across Europe and is a harmonised policy and licence for open data possible? This presentation will share recent research carried out by EuroGeographics to answer this question – and describe the progress of the development of Open Data Policy for OpenELS and associated licence. It will also reveal the extent of existing open INSPIRE services (based on research by EuroGeographics and the Joint Research Centre) and explain why bringing these together in a harmonised way will benefit both stakeholders and users alike.
