Spatial Planning



G - Global

M - Monitoring for

E - Environment and

S - Security

What is gmes
What is GMES ?

A European initiative with different dimensions!

  • the user ‘s dimension - the need for independent information for EU environmental and security policies

  • the strategic dimension - the necessity for Europe to play a leading role in information and Earth observation technology

  • Overall goal - Establish by 2008 a European Capacity for Global Monitoring of Environment and Security

  • key drivers of GMES

    • The European Commission – DG Research / DG InfSo / DG JRC / DG Environment / DG Regio / DG Agri / DG ?

    • The European Space Agency ESA

geoland- Thematic Scope

ESPON Seminar

General approach

Starts from user requirements!

Active involvement of users

Follows European Standards in terms of

Nomenclature (e.g. CORINE LC)

Formats (OpenGIS)

Technical standards (INSPIRE)

Quality Assurance (ISO)

Based on sound experience the partners in LU/LC applications, especially for

Agricultural land use and irrigation


Urban mapping

Processing chains designed for efficient production of LU/LC products, in terms of quality, affordabilty, and highest possible degree of automation

General Approach

ESPON Seminar

geoland – Observatory Spatial Planning

  • Lead: GeoVille (total budget:> 2 Mill €)

  • Strong link with core service “Land cover” led by Infoterra

  • Partners:

    • University of Leeds (UK)

    • JRC

    • Hugin (D)

    • Austrian Research Centres (A)

  • Extended user group:

    • DG Regio



    • ETC-TE

    • Federal Environment Agency (A)

    • Austrian Institute of Spatial Planning (A)

    • State Governments of Vorarlberg & Upper Austria (A)

ESPON Seminar

Espon seminar lillehammer may 10 11 2004

Objectives and goals

Introducing innovative EO based services and products into the domain of spatial planning

Products in the urban-urban and urban-rural relations domain

Products in the agricultural-environmental domain

Tools & models to build scenarios

Becoming the reference for EO spatial planning applications at European, national & regional level

geoland – Observatory Spatial Planning

ESPON Seminar

Espon seminar lillehammer may 10 11 2004

Summary of the geoland Services for Spatial Planning

EO based applications for spatial planning to provide operational, homogenous and localised geo-information services for Europe

Fulfilling the requirements of


sustainability, and


Thereby helping

to understand the diversity of the European territory (polycentrism, etc.)

to mitigate urban-rural disparities for a balanced territorial development

to ensure sustainable use of soil as a non-renewable resource

to evaluate spatial planning programmes on different levels

to assess territorial impacts of infrastructure investments
