HARMO-DATA is an undergoing Italia-Slovenia Project, funded by EU in the framework of the INTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 Programme, involving three regions: Friuli-Venezia-Giulia (Italy), Veneto (Italy) and Slovenia. The main Project purpose is to develop common solutions for more efficient cross border spatial management harmonizing the existing spatial data, implementing a cross-border spatial data platform and developing a common protocol far data access and maintenance. The project involves directly different stakeholders, target groups and final users. Several use-case scenarios were identified by the project partners, in cooperation with public and private end-users and stakeholders (Urban 3D modelling and 3D zoning, Ecosystems services mapping and assessment, Disaster management, Infrastructure management and services). Nevertheless, core Project use-case scenario relates to spatial data search, view and download.
For an efficient usability cross-border spatial data need to be harmonized. The harmonization model for spatial datasets used in these use-case scenarios is based on the INSPIRE data specifications.
A joined common spatial data platform, under development inside the Project, will be established as an extension of the existing search-view-download platforms (metadata systems) upgraded and improved to better enable open data access by users from both Italy and Slovenia countries. The common spatial HARMO-DATA data platform, as well as a joint protocol for cross-border spatial data harmonization, will be formalized in an official bilateral agreement.
