Proposal INSPIRE Framework Directive

General Provisions

  • INSPIRE lays down general rules for the establishment of an infrastructure for spatial information in Europeto support:

    • environmental policies and

    • policies that affect the environment

  • This infrastructure shall be based on infrastructures for spatial information established and operated by the Member States.

  • According to the INSPIRE proposal the infrastructure includes:

    • metadata, spatial data sets and services; network services; agreements on sharing, access and use; coordination and monitoring mechanisms, processes and procedures.

The process long one but needed bottom up stakeholder involvement
The Process ( long one… -:) but needed !Bottom-up Stakeholder Involvement

  • Building consensus in expert groups

    • Orientation and Position papers of experts

    • Establishing the state-of-play

  • Preparing the proposal -> A Framework Directive

    • Scoping policy measures with expert advice

    • Assessing the political and socio-economic impact

    • A public review of the proposed measures

  • Adoption of the Framework Directive by the Commission

  • The proposal on the political agenda of the EU Presidency

  • Co-Decision Procedure by Council and Parliament

  • Adoption of the Framework Directive

  • Transposing the Framework Directive

  • Implementing the Framework Directive

Next steps
Next steps

  • From Commission proposal to Community Directive implementation - 3 phases:

    • Preparatory phase (2004-2006)

      • Co-decision procedure

      • Preparation of Implementing Rules

    • Transposition phase (2007-2008)

      • Directive enters into force

      • Transposition into national legislation

      • INSPIRE Committee starts its activities

      • Adoption of Implementation Rules by Committology

    • Implementation phase (2009-2013)

      • implementation and monitoring of measures

Inspire implementing rules
INSPIRE Implementing Rules

  • INSPIRE will require the Member States to implement various measures. Some of these measures shall be transposed by the Member States, while others require more detail which will be provided in ‘Implementing Rules’

  • How to implement INSPIRE ?

    • Transposition of the Directive into national legislation

    • Committology

      • To adopt Implementing Rules

Inspire implementing rules1
INSPIRE Implementing Rules

  • At the technical level, Implementing Rules:

    • for the creation and up-dating of the metadata

    • for harmonised data specifications

    • on the arrangements for the exchange of spatial data

    • for network services

  • At an organisational level, Implementing Rules:

    • laying down obligations on third parties (non-public sector) which may want to publish data

    • governing access and rights of use to spatial data sets and services for Community institutions and bodies

    • to increase the potential of re-use of spatial data sets and services by third parties (non-public sector)

Metadata inspire requirements
MetadataINSPIRE requirements

  • To create comprehensive metadata of:

    • spatial data

    • spatial data services

  • To keep metadata up to date

Action plan 2005 2006
Action Plan 2005-2006

  • On the basis of the INSPIRE Roadmap

    • first priority actions are needed with regard to the deliverables at the 2007 milestone

    • in second priority actions are linked to milestone deliverables in 2008-2009, but for which more time is required to develop them (e.g. harmonised data specifications)

The broader context
The broader context

  • The implementation of INSPIRE needs to consider the broader context of existing initiatives which could contribute to ESDI

  • The INSPIRE Work Programme should interface with those partnerships and initiatives where relevant and establish synergy

  • SDIC bundle the human expertise of users, producers and transformers of spatial information, technical competence, financial resources and policies

concept of Spatial Data Interest Communities (SDIC)

Sdics possible roles
SDICs – possible roles -

  • collect and describe user requirements,

  • submit/develop reference materials as an input to the drafting teams,

  • allocate experts to the drafting teams,

  • participate in the review process,

  • implement pilot projects to test/revise/develop the draft Implementing Rules,

  • make cost/benefit analysis of the draft Implementing Rules,

  • contribute to awareness raising and training

Inspire and gi standardization
INSPIRE and GI standardization

  • interoperable spatial services could be achieved adopting common standards and/or common specifications in the form of Implementing Rules

    • more the software industry supports these standards in its products, the easier is the implementation

  • In addition to the generic ICT standardisation efforts, there are currently specific GI standards

    • ISO/TC211, CEN/TC287, OpenGeospatial Consortium (OGC)

    • their value is recognized by INSPIRE

  • involvement of CEN, ISO, OGC wgs in the drafting can be direct or indirect by way of SDICs, LMOs, and projects

Cross-referencestechnical IRs for: Metadata / Spatial data specifications and harmonisation / Network services and interoperability

  • Standards

    • Open IT and geospatial standards from W3C, WS-I, OMG, OGC, ISO, OASIS, CEN

  • Specific initiatives/wgs

    • Dublin Core, CEN/TC287 WG 5 “SDI”, ISO/TC211, JAG OGC-ISO, …

    • National data standardisation, modelling and data re-engineering initiatives

    • Other European related programmes (GMES, eEurope, eGovernment, eContentPlus, ..)

    • International initiatives (GSDI, USNSDI, GeoConnection, …)


  • INSPIRE is a framework Directive with implementing rules to be defined in incoming years

  • Highest involvement of key stakeholders through the SDIC concept is needed

    • A call for expression of interest of SDIC will be soon published

  • Openness and transparency in drafting implementing measures will be followed

    • including formal public consultation

  • Pilots and Projects could play a key role to define and validate the implementing rules
