The nature sdi plus and the vesta gis project 1370907

eContentplus project for a Best Practice Network

NATURE-SDIplus

Best Practice Network for SDI in Nature Conservation

Starting date: October 1st, 2008

Duration: 30 months

EU Funding: 2.7 M € - 30 partners

Nature-SDIplus Network aims to improve the harmonisation of national datasets and make them more accessible and exploitable..


The nature sdi plus and the vesta gis project 1370907

Dalai Lama says: "Imagine how our life would be void if we couldn't enjoy the beauty of nature, the presence of the animals, the magnificence of the mountains and the expanse of the oceans…“

… it is the biodiversity, intended as the whole of the ecosystems and the genetic diversity of fauna and flora


Background i

Background I

General background

Natura 2000 and the new transboundary EU approach for protected sites management

Need

interoperable, accessible and harmonised datasets for the EU, as addressed by the INSPIRE Directive


Background ii

Background II

NATURE-GIS IST Project

A European thematic Network for Protected Areas / Nature Preservation and Geographical Information

The NATURE-GIS Guidelines

Data Infrastructures for Protected Areas

THE NATURE-GIS SDIC

Registered as a Thematic SDIC within INSPIRE


The nature gis guidelines

The Nature-GIS Guidelines

What are they for?

To provide in a single volume

the salient findings of the project and to draw “best practice” indications for the discovery, access and use of geo-spatial data on protected areas

They are divided into three parts

- Nature-GIS context

- Nature-GIS Survey

- Nature-GIS Architecture

They are available on Internet as well (www.gisig.it)‏

Aim

to improve harmonisation of national datasets and make them more accessible and exploitable, with reference to a cluster of data themes on nature conservation:

  • Protected sites (Annex I);

  • Biogeographical regions, Habitats and biotopes, Species distribution (Annex III).

    Objective

  • to involve new stakeholders

  • to share data and best practices

  • to improve and stimulate exploitation and re-use of information


  • Nature sdiplus outlines ii

    Results

    • a EU metadata profile based on standards and a data model in CEN/TC 287 Geographic information

    • a common multilingual/multicultural approach to geo-data, with a Thesaurus to support data modelling and metadata provision

    • a demonstration infrastructure (INSPIRE compliant Geoportal) supported by web services providing data access to users

    • share with the INSPIRE Teams of expertise, outcomes and best practices, to drive to adoption of INSPIRE specifications

    • a Community on SDI for nature conservation addressing themes and consensus building and ensuring wide awareness (also with training and dissemination)

      Not only test data-sets, but also Best Practices will be provided by partners for many EU Member States
