(Submission #330)


During the presentation the new INSPIRE Geoportal, the central access point to the spatial data provided in INSPIRE’s data infrastructure, will be officially launched. The new Geoportal builds on the experience of running the INSPIRE Geoportal Pilot and supports several actions of the INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Work Programme (MIWP) 2016-2020, especially regarding the simplification of use. We hope that for users it will represent to better:

• discover suitable data sets based on their descriptions (metadata);

• access the selected data sets through their view or download service;

• monitor the availability of INSPIRE data sets. The presentation will highlight the main features/applications (e.g. Priority Data Sets Viewer) of the new Geoportal, developed by JRC in collaboration with and support from DG Environment, DG Eurostat and the European Environment Agency. After a short demonstration, the plans for the Geoportal future development / improvement will be shared with the audience.
