Our Members

The role of the national mapping cadastre agencies
The role of the National Mapping & Cadastre Agencies

  • From data providers to facilitators of data integration & access within an SDI

  • Definitive, reliable & high quality ‘reference’ data that underpins the SDI

  • Building effective partnerships to make the European SDI a reality!

Inspire the legal framework for building the esdi
INSPIRE – The legal framework for building the ESDI

  • Pragmatic solution supported by the NMCAs

  • Facilitate the sharing and maintenance of high quality GI

  • Accommodate diverse business models

  • Consistent with PSI directive


  • European capacity for provision and use of operational information for “Global Monitoring for Environment and Security”

  • Europe’s contribution to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems

  • Aim to launch 3 operational Fast Track Services during 2008:

    Land, Emergency and Marine

  • GMES must leverage and complement existing infrastructure, experience and investment

Big ambition
……………………… BIG ambition

To achieve ‘interoperability’ of the Members’ national land and geographic information assets ………….

……….. to provide Europe with an information asset that will enable it to become the most competitive and sustainable economy in the world.


  • To further the development of the European Spatial Data Infrastructure through collaboration in the area of geographical information, including topographic, cadastre and land information

Supporting gmes
Supporting GMES

  • Integrating “in situ” data

    • Emergency – NMCAs can provide current data for accurate pre-disaster situation maps.

    • Land – NMCA data can be used to create or validate (land cover and land use) products.
