Paving the way for a successful INSPIRE implementation - Thematic Cluster #3

Jordi Escriu

(Submission #247)


Member States must provide INSPIRE compliant data by 2020 for data sets in the scope of Annexes II and III. This comprises themes like Elevation and Orthoimagery which shall contribute to the European Data Infrastructure with basic reference data ready to be exploited for Pan-European use cases.

INSPIRE Thematic Cluster #3, covering the Elevation, Orthoimagery, Coordinate reference systems and Geographical grid systems themes, has driven since the end of 2014 a number of online and face-to-face activities (e.g. networking, discussions, implementation examples, workshops, webinars, etc.) as part of its continuous process for supporting implementers in the scope.

A short overview about the type of topics taking place in the Thematic Cluster platform is provided as illustration below:

• Direct support to empower successful implementation.

• Clarifying questions stemming from the interpretation of the INSPIRE Technical Guidelines.

• Influencing the evolution of the INSPIRE (Implementing Rule of Spatial Data Sets and Services, Technical Guidelines, etc.) in the framework of the INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Framework:

The presentation will provide the audience with a quick and useful vision about the most relevant discussions, implementation issues, knowledge base resources and reference examples, pointing to the resources available in the Thematic Clusters platform and the related activities scheduled during the Conference.

Additionally, direct discussion will be promoted in a timely manner, with the aim to prompt a useful thought-provoking session, including a beneficial sharing of experiences between all the stakeholders attending the event.

As such, this presentation constitutes a unique opportunity to meet INSPIRE implementers, users, as well as industry and software providers for discussing about the current status quo of INSPIRE and how it should evolve in the short and mid-term.
