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.
Encoding raster data as INSPIRE Coverages, which are widely adopted as an interoperable way for providing observational raster data ready to be exploited through data cube analytics.
Use, potential and implementation experiences on Web Coverage Services (WCS).
Existing transformation and validation tools.
• Clarifying questions stemming from the interpretation of the INSPIRE Technical Guidelines.
Use of the INSPIRE ‘Equal Area Grid’.
Type of cartographic projections allowed in INSPIRE (e.g. Transverse Mercator).
Mandatory and alternative encodings.
• 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:
Coping with interoperability blocking factors, inconsistencies as well as errors identified in the Technical Guidelines and/or the Implementing Rule.
Management of the change proposals derived from this activity (amendments, clarifications, correction of errors) to these documents.
Need and feasibility of a usable European Common Geographical Grid for raster data.
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.
