Spatial information sharing and access

The 2007 INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) Directive aims to create an EU-wide spatial data infrastructure to allow for the sharing of environmental and spatial information amongst public sector organisations and with the public. With a view towards finding the means to facilitate and speed up such access, a public consultation on the benefits of harmonising data and introducing common standards in key policy areas such as energy, climate change, biodiversity, the marine environment, and human health has now been launched by the Commission.

Deadline: 21 October
