The Mission of the Joint Research Centre
… is to provide customer-driven scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies.

As a service of the European Commission, the JRC functions as a reference centre of science and technology for the Union.
Close to the policy-making process, it serves the common interest of the Member States, while being independent of special interests, whether private or national.

The intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO), formally established at the 3rd Earth Observation Summit in Feb 05, is leading a worldwide effort to build a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) over the next 10 years

Pilot
In 2005 the Environmental Policy Review Group endorsed the vision for a Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) aiming to improve access to information needed for environmental policies and to reduce the administrative burden associated with reporting and monitoring.

International SDI
The INSPIRE Directive 2007/2/EC, published in the OJ on the 25.4.07, will enter into force on the 15.5.2007 A MoU was signed in 2006 by the DGs of JRC, DG ENV and ESTAT establishing the collaborative framework until 2013. The JRC is responsible for the overall technical coordination of INSPIRE.

INSPIRE Directive
 INSPIRE lays down general rules to establish an infrastructure for spatial information in Europe • for the purposes of Community environmental policies and • policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment.  INSPIRE to be based on the infrastructures for spatial information established and operated by the Member States • INSPIRE is a distributed infrastructure.
 INSPIRE does not require collection of new spatial data  INSPIRE does not affect existing Intellectual Property Rights  Entry into force 15 May 2007

INSPIRE Components
 Metadata  Interoperability of spatial data sets and services  Network services (discovery, view, download, invoke) • Made available trough the European geo-portal  Data and Service sharing (policy)  Coordination and measures for Monitoring & Reporting

INSPIRE is a Framework Directive
Detailed technical provisions for the issues above will be laid down in Implementing Rules Once adopted, Implementing Rules become European legislative acts and national law in 27 Member States and in some EFTA countries

INSPIRE Implementing Rule for Metadata - Content
 Directive 2007/2/EC Articles 5 and 6: Member States shall ensure that
metadata are created for the spatial data sets and services corresponding to the themes listed in Annexes I, II, (within 2 years of adoption of IRs) and III (within 5 years of adoption of IRs), and that those metadata are kept up to date. Metadata shall include information on the following :

a. the conformity of spatial data sets with the implementing rules provided for in Article 7(1); b. conditions applying to access to, and use of, spatial data sets and services and, where applicable, corresponding fees; c. the quality and validity of spatial data sets; d. the public authorities responsible for the establishment, management, maintenance and distribution of spatial data sets and services; e. limitations on public access and the reasons for such limitations, in accordance with Article 13.

CEN/TC 287 Second Mediterranean workshop, 11-06-2008

Directive 2007/2/EC Article 11
 The following combination of search criteria shall be implemented: a. Keywords; b. classification of spatial data and services; c. the quality and validity of spatial data sets; d. degree of conformity with the implementing rules provided for in Article 7(1); e. geographical location; f. conditions applying to the access to and use of spatial data sets and services; g. the public authorities responsible for the establishment, management, maintenance and distribution of spatial data sets and services.

Guidelines and editor
 Relation between IR, guidelines and standards • CEN/TC 287 can support IR development process by adopting relevant standards and Technical Reports – Role for CEN/TC 287 identified in INSPIRE Work Programme 2007-2009 – CEN/TC 287 has welcomed this role – RESOLUTION 124 taken by CEN/TC 287 on 2007-06-06/07 to support work of INSPIRE – RESOLUTION 143 taken by CEN/TC 287 on 2008-04-24/25 to establish an Ad hoc group on metadata for discovery • Technical liaison with OGC and ISO TC 211

Guidelines and editor
Article 15 1. The Commission shall establish and operate an Inspire geoportal at Community level. 2. Member States shall provide access to the services referred to in Article 11(1) through the Inspire geo-portal referred to in paragraph 1. Member States may also provide access to those services through their own access points.

Next steps and conclusions
 Adoption process • INSPIRE Regulatory Committee expressed its opinion • European Parliament has until 19 June 2008 to check if Commission exceeded its powers – Draft metadata regulation uploaded to public Comitology Register (accessible via http://www.ec-gis.org/inspire) • Translations expected to be ready by July • Publication possibly in August • Entry into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union (August/September 2008)

CEN/TC 287 Second Mediterranean workshop, 11-06-2008

31

Next steps and conclusions
 Highest involvement of key stakeholders through the Spatial Data Interest Community (SDIC) and Legally Mandated Organisations (LMO) concepts  Are you involved in a network representing producers, transformers and users of spatial data that falls within the scope of INSPIRE? • Register as a Spatial Data Interest Community!  Has your organisation a legal mandate for one or more aspects of INSPIRE? • Register as a Legally Mandated Organisation!
  Keep informed Review deliverables from the Drafting Teams and the Thematic Working Groups Propose experts Submit reference material Testing of draft specifications

Next steps and conclusion
 The IRs are the result of a major collaborative effort with key experts in the field (the DT), the SDICs and LMOs, and the Commission  They are technically coherent and can be implemented in compliance with international standards  Tools are already being developed to facilitate the creation and maintenance of the metadata required , which will make existing information resources in Europe more visible and usable.
