Improve usefulness and reliability of monitoring information
The participants of the Monitoring & Reporting workshop held in Copenhagen on 15/10/2013 underlined the strong need to improve the usefulness and the reliability of monitoring information.
Proposed change or action:
- Phase 1
o Review the indicators defined in Articles 3 to 10 of the Commission Decision of 5 June 2009, implementing Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards monitoring and reporting, with the objective of automating their calculation.
o Analyse how to extract monitoring information from the metadata records available in the EU-Geoportal or from the metadata records available in national geoportals.
o Analyse how to filter out the metadata records which are for INSPIRE datasets out of a catalogue containing metadata on more datasets than only INSPIRE datasets.
o Design a dashboard (including functional requirements) which would provide access to all monitoring information and related indicators for every Member State.
o Test the approach with pilot countries.
o Update the justification document for indicators as appropriate.
o Update the Technical Guidelines on monitoring as appropriate.
- Phase 2
o Possibly, propose evolutions of discovery metadata or monitoring data requiring modifications of some legally binding pieces of INSPIRE legislation.
Establish a MIG sub-group to address the issue.

- Updated justification document for indicators
- Updated Technical Guidelines on monitoring
