Geospatial data sharing for the environment: public consultation on the INSPIRE Directive
From 7 September until 19 October, the European Commission is conducting a public consultation concerning its INSPIRE Directive of 2007.
The INSPIRE Directive created an online portal to enable geospatial data on the environment to be shared among public authorities in Europe, facilitating public access to spatial information across Europe and assisting in policy-making across boundaries. This includes common standards for collecting data on e.g. groundwater, transport networks, land use, air temperatures. In total, the European Spatial Data Infrastructure addresses 34 spatial data themes. Full implementation is required by 2021.
The public consultation will assess whether the Directive is:
- effective and efficient in protecting the environment;
- still relevant for its stakeholders;
- and in line with other EU legislation, specifically the new Green Deal data space initiative.
Send your feedback here before the 19th of October!
