A story of interoperability

A story of interoperability…

  • I can obtain, for a price, data via this media and according to this model …


A story

a story …

  • I can obtain, for a price, data via this media and according to this model …

  • … but I could read it only in that format …


A story1

a story …

  • Clever I am (I am a developer) I purchased this extra development kit …


A story2

a story …

  • Clever I am (I am a developer) I purchased this extra development kit …

  • … and managed to get the data into my system, but it’s unreliable and there are significant losses in the transfer.


A story3

a story …

  • So I went to a professional consultant, who sold me sophisticated tools …


A story4

a story …

  • So I went to a professional consultant, who sold me sophisticated tools …

  • … as well as he sold me his much needed assembling skills and support service …


A story5

a story …

  • Finally, I got a decent data flow, in a reasonably safe and professional set-up …


A story6

a story …

  • Finally, I have a decent data flow, in a reasonably safe and professional set-up …

  • … but at a significant cost and not readily reusable in a different environment.


A story7

a story …

  • What I would have liked is an immediately (inter)operable interface …


A story8

a story …

  • What I would have liked is an immediately (inter)operable interface …

  • … at low cost, and usable in many different environment.

Achieve interoperability of European mapping

(and other GI) data within 10 years


The 12 inspire policy principles 1

The 12 INSPIRE policy principles (1)

  • The European Spatial Data Infrastructure shall be built upon a network of National Spatial Data Infrastructures;

  • INSPIRE’s technical architecture shall be designed to meet the needs of all stakeholders;

  • Datasets made available to harmonised data specifications and to common standards;

  • Data Quality procedures to ensure fitness for purpose and use;

  • Discovery metadata will be made available at no charge to help users identify and locate INSPIRE datasets;

  • Reference data will provide the underpinning framework to which all other INSPIRE data will be referenced.


The 12 inspire policy principles 2

The 12 INSPIRE policy principles (2)

  • Thematic data will be made available to common standards;

  • INSPIRE data shall be made available for access and view without charge and on harmonised terms and conditions throughout the European Union;

  • Sustainable funding and investment mechanisms shall be put in place and maintained by Member States;

  • Harmonised licensing framework will optimise sharing and trading of georeferenced thematic information;

  • Unimpeded flow of data and information at local, regional, national and international;

  • Management and organisation of INSPIRE shall be based on the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality.

Achieving the vision metadata

Achieving the vision : metadata

  • The first step

  • History : GDDD since 1996

  • ‘modernisation’ in progress, synergies with INSPIRE portal, and national initiatives


Achieving the vision pricing licensing

Achieving the vision : Pricing & Licensing

  • Rationale :

    • There is no value of the harmonised data if customers are not able access and to use it

  • Objectives :

    • Create licensing terms similar enough to remove legal obstacles to regional/European products

    • Comparable pricing policy - not similar prices

  • Issues of data access, usage and dissemination terms are considered on the same priority (if not higher) than the work on the common specifications

Eurospec objectives

EuroSpec objectives

  • Develop agreed specifications (data content and data model ) for common reference data;

  • Build a community of key stakeholders (including customers, system and application developers, and other project partners) and involve them in the development and implementation testing of the specifications;


Eurospec objectives cont d

EuroSpec objectives (cont’d)

  • Test the feasibility of implementing the specifications through development of prototypes - “ to learn by doing”; and,

  • Develop implementation guidelines for NMAs to ensure national datasets can be transformed to the European specification(s).


Scope content

Scope (content)

  • Common Reference Data

    • Units of administration

    • Units of property rights (parcels, buildings)

    • Addresses

    • Selected topographic themes (hydrography, transport, height,…)

    • Orthoimagery

    • Gazetteer

    • Coordinate systems


Scope resolution

Scope (resolution)

  • Feature catalogue

    • Scale-less

  • Data structure, data models

    • Focus on large scale (1:10.000)

    • Address other required scale ranges

      • Medium : 1:25k ~ 1:50k

      • Small : 1:100k ~ 1:1M

    • Options, issues

      • Object based, unique identifier

      • Connected topology, shared topology,

      • Edge matching

      • 3D, time stamp


State of the art 1

State of the art (1)

  • Most reference data components are available in Europe, provided by an average of 2 organisations per country

State of the art 2

State of the art (2)

  • Most reference data components are available in Europe, provided by an average of 2 organisations per country

  • Most larger scale national ‘topographic’ databases are at scale 1:10.000


Scale of topographic databases

Scale of topographic databases

Note1: Switzerland has also

60 % of data in scale 1:1000

Note2: GB has several scales (29 % 1:1250, 68 % 1:2500, 3 % 1:10000)


State of the art 3

State of the art (3)

  • Most reference data components are available in Europe, provided by an average of 2 organisations per country

  • Most larger scale national ‘topographic’ databases are at scale 1:10.000

  • Topographic data is generally not object based, but there is a definite trend to change towards object based structures

  • National DBs are generally not based on international standards.

Seamless Administrative Boundariesof Europe

Early steps : SABE

  • The first European commercial product from NMAs

  • It was started in 1992: v1991, v1995, v1997, 2001 Census (released Feb 2003)

  • The most detailed admin. units from “official sources”

  • Cross-border data with uniform structure and in one reference system

  • 32 countries


Early steps euroglobalmap

Early steps : EuroGlobalMap

  • Global (1:1m) scale

  • Network approach to creation through regional coordinators

  • Target for delivery:

    • June 2003 ~ 20 countries

    • End 2003~ 30-35 countries

http://www.eurogeographics.org/egm


Early steps euroregionalmap

Early steps : EuroRegionalMap

  • Regional/national scale (1:250k)

  • Prototype dataset covering 7 countries

  • Target for delivery is October 2003

  • Aim to expand coverage
