 INSPIRE


   What are
the objectives ?
                  INSPIRE principles

   Data should be collected once and maintained at the level where
    this can be done most effectively
   It should be possible to combine seamless spatial information from
    different sources across Europe and share it between many users
    and application
   It should be possible for information collected at one level to be
    shared between all the different levels, detailed for detailed
    investigations, general for strategic purposes
   It should be easy to discover which geographic information is
    available, fits the needs for a particular use and under which
    conditions it can be acquired and used
   Geographic data should become easy to understand and interpret
    because it can be visualised within the appropriate context
    selected in a user-friendly way




    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   17
              INSPIRE objectives

Make relevant, harmonised spatial data available for
  Community Environmental Policy (formulation,
 implementation, monitoring and evaluation - Art.
           175(1)) and for the citizen ...


      … through the establishment of integrated
      spatial information services, based upon a
     distributed network of databases, linked by
     common standards and protocols to ensure
                     compatibility.

Legislative process
          Co-decision procedure




ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   20
           Status after first reading
   EP first reading opinion adopted 7 June
    2005—generally acceptable for the
    Commission
   Commission and Council not able to agree
    at first reading
   Unanimous political agreement reached in
    Council on 24 June 2005, without support
    of Commission
   Four MSs expressed similar concerns to
    Commission
    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   21
        Key points of disagreement
   Procedure for adopting implementing rules
    on interoperability; uniform application
   Public access to data: free-of-charge view
    services; IPR as ground for limiting access
   Sharing between public authorities: need
    to ensure charging and licensing practices
    compatible with this overall objective



    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   22
                          Latest news
   EP 2nd reading amendments adopted
    13 June 2006
   36 amendments in total
   Many amendments address issues of
    concern raised by Commission on
    Common Position
   Commission accepts 30 amendments in
    full, 5 amendments in principle or in part,
    does not accept 1 amendment


    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   23
                            Next steps
   Council has four months to react to EP
    amendments
        First WP meeting last Friday 8/9
   Conciliation procedure follows
   Agreement must be found by end of 2006
   Formal conciliation to be avoided.

         definition (e.g: licence)
        Relevant but dependent upon the political process
         (e.g. obstacle, point of use) → final INSPIRE Directive
   Categories for collecting user requirements e.g.:
        Types of data
        Types of services
        Types of user
        Rights of use, types of usage
        Procedure
        License model preferred

         Annex:
Provisions foreseen in the
 proposal for a Directive
                   I - general provisions

   Establish an infrastructure for spatial information
    in the EU to support:
       environmental policies and
       policies that directly or indirectly affect the environment,

   Based on infrastructures of the Member States
    that include
       metadata, spatial data sets and services; network
        services; agreements on sharing, access and use; and
        co-ordination and monitoring mechanisms, processes
        and procedures.

         ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   50
              I - general provisions

                What is covered ?
   spatial data
       related to EU territory,
       in electronic format,
       public sector data,
       covers themes in annex I, II and III.
       (provisions for third party data - but always
        subject to third party consent)
   ”spatial data services” for those spatial
    data
    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   51
                      II - metadata

   Establishment of catalogues for
    spatial data and for services
   Progressive implementation until 6
    years after entry into force of
    Directive
   Metadata is the “fuel” of the search
    engine to the spatial information

    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   52
                 III - interoperability

   Harmonised spatial data specifications
           the key to solving problems with data inconsistency
           adopted through comitology
           more stringent for Annex I and II than for Annex III
           earlier for Annex I than for Annex II and III
   (Arrangements for the exchange of spatial data)




      ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   53
               III - interoperability
   Harmonised spatial data specifications
           Common system of unique identifiers for spatial objects
           Relationship between spatial objects
           Key attributes and multilingual thesauri
           How to exchange the temporal dimension of data
           Updates exchange
           Consistency between items referring to the same location
           Consistency between information referring to the same object
            at different scales
   Implementing rules by 2 years after entry into force for
    Annex I
   Implementing rules by 5 years after entry into force for
    Annex II, III
   2 years after adoption of the implementing rules: new or
    updated spatial data must be compliant
    ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   54
               IV - network services
   discovery services (free of charge);
   view services (free of charge);
   download services;
   transformation services;
   services to invoke “spatial data services”




     ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   55
                IV - network services
   Network services are the window to INSPIRE
   Community Geo-portal, in addition to national
    access points
   Various derogations
      confidentiality if provided by law
      public security and national defence,
      course of justice, confidentiality,

      protection of the environment

      etc…

   Services can run on top of existing systems:
    no need to replace them!
     ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   56
           V - data sharing and re use

   For public authorities:
       barrier-free sharing of spatial data sets and
        services…
       for public tasks that may have a direct or
        indirect impact on the environment.
       access of institutions and bodies of the
        Community
   (For third parties:
       Implementing Rules to reduce barriers for re-
        use to be adopted by comitology)

        ESTAT - D2 Regional Indicators and Geographical Information   57
         VI - co-ordination and complementary
                        measures

   Co-ordination at Member State level: to be
    organised by the MS, should include users,
    producers, added-value service providers and
    co-ordinating bodies

   Co-ordination at EU level: by Commission
    with support of EEA

   Implementation of many measures supported
    by Implementing Rules adopted by
    Comitology
