(as if) No boundaries at all.

(Submission #46)


With obligations to provide Anex I datasets and services fully in force, the INSPIRE target to provide homogeneous paneuropean spatial data is close at hand. One aspect which may be seen as an obstacle to data homogenity are national boundaries, representing usually not only dataset extents but also different responsible parties and different properties inherited from their national data parents, which may reflect into their INSPIRE form. Lets explore:

• What obligations are really given by INSPIRE directive and it’s legislation, concerning crossborder connections.

• What datasets are there to work with, how to find companion dataset abroad?

• Do we really have common boundary definition ?

• What is being done, and does it project into good results?

• Is this sustainable?
In this paper we would like to introduce efforts on behalf of Czech Land Survey Office, to achieve seamless connection of our INSPIRE datasets, to the data of neigbouring countries, with focus mainly on transport network and hydrography. As a sideline, we would like to represent few challenges in seamless provision of raster data themes as well.
