Call for expression of interest to tender: Facilitating access to INSPIRE data through standard-based APIs


In the context of ELISE (European Location Interoperability Solutions for e-Government) Action of the ISA2 programme, the JRC is planning to launch a procurement aiming to investigate the feasibility, design and implementation of geospatial APIs that leverage on the investment made by EU Member States in the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive. 

The contract aims at:

  • Identifying advantages and disadvantages of emerging service and data sharing standards (in particular the new Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) API – Features and SensorThings API standards) for publishing spatial data on the web;
  • Proposing an approach to facilitate interoperability through the use of APIs in government geospatial data/service provision, and
  • evaluating the proposed approach against different use cases, and exploring methods for simplifying access to INSPIRE datasets.

Deadline for registration of interest 23/08/2019
