Copernicus Services’ access to INSPIRE compliant data and services

Henrik Steen Andersen

(Submission #87)


The Copernicus Services need access to geospatial reference data for production purposes as well as for validation. The Services are to a very large degree dependent on data sets made available by public institutions in Member States, including data covered by the INSPIRE directive.

With the aim of meeting Copernicus Services’ key requirements for in situ data, the EEA, in its capacity as coordinator of the Copernicus In Situ Component, has been testing practical ways of making INSPIRE compliant data accessible and usable for relevant Copernicus Services.

This presentation will summarise the results of some of these activities and will propose how to further stimulate the uptake of INSPIRE compliant data by the Copernicus Services.

The presented examples will be taken from studies focusing on: an analysis of the applicability of the European Location Services (ELS); the evolution of the Copernicus Reference Data Access Portal (CORDA); the use of downloadable Annex 1 data, e.g. Administrative Units; and finally a more general study on how Copernicus may benefit from the Member States implementation of INSPIRE (INSCope).
