GNSS monitoring station

By Nathalie DELATTRE Replies (1)

I am wondering whether the GNSS stations are in the scope of INSPIRE and can be mapped under the Environmental Monitoring Facilities Nathalie Delattre

    Hi Nathalie,

    pertaining to the scope, to my feeling the GNSS stations are in scope. I've copied in Article 4 § 1 for your reference below.

    As for the correct INSPIRE Theme, while I'd need a bit more information on what exactly is being monitored by the GNSS stations, I'm fairly sure that Environmental Monitoring Facilities is the correct theme.



    Article 4

    1. This Directive shall cover spatial data sets which fulfil the following conditions:
    (a) they relate to an area where a Member State has and/or exercises jurisdictional rights;
    (b) they are in electronic format;
    (c) they are held by or on behalf of any of the following:
    (i) a public authority, having been produced or received by a public authority, or being managed or updated by that authority and falling within the scope of its public tasks;
    (ii) a third party to whom the network has been made available in accordance with Article 12;
    (d) they relate to one or more of the themes listed in Annex I, II or III.
