INSPIRE Directive What’s up? EC INSPIRE TEAM Joint Research Centre - Directorate-General Environment – EUROSTAT firstname.lastname@example.org European Commission EUROSTATE4
Overview • INSPIRE basics • INSPIRE state of the art • INSPIRE and STATISTICS • Implementing INSPIRE • Contact information
Where can I find……comparable geographic information for distinct administrative areas? Challenge: identify, access and use geographic information • fragmentation • gaps in availability, duplication • data policy restrictions / pricing policies • lack of data harmonisation: standards, quality • lack of infrastructure • better coordination needed
Reference system 1 : ETRS89 Reference system 2 : Clarke 80 Reference systems not harmonized
Data inconsistency across borders Different road networks density or different classifications?!
Data inconsistency across borders Administrative boundaries are not matching
INSPIRE Principles • maintain data at the most effective level; • share between all levels; • combine seamlessly spatial data from different sources; • use conditions not restrict extensive use; • discover, evaluate, use data.
INSPIRE: INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe • INSPIRE geo-portal • A network where you can search, view, download data sets, access to other services (transformation, invoke) • Technical harmonisation and organisational aspects
EU Geoportal= Central Access Point • Provides access to the Member States INSPIRE services • Operated by the EC Operational version: 30-Nov-2010
INSPIRE is a Framework Directive • INSPIRE Directive • sets theframe • INSPIRE geo-portal • coordination • requests implementing rules • Implementing rules: amend non essential elements, • provide (technical) details Metadata Data structure Network services Monitoring and reporting Data and service sharing with EU
When does INSPIRE Directive apply? • Data and services • Spatial data held by or on behalf of a public authority • Data sets and services specified by the Directive (Annex I, II, III) • Use (for public authorities) • Policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment.

Data specifications and statistics Examples of themes of interest to statistics: • Statistical units (Annex III) • Human health and safety (Annex III) • Population distribution – demography (An. III) • http://inspire.jrc.ec.europa.eu/reports/ImplementingRules/DataSpecifications/D2.3_Definition_of_Annex_Themes_and_scope_v3.0.pdf
Statistical units Units for dissemination or use of statistical information: areas, lines, points Sub-grouping of administrative units • official administrative units • government management zones • blocks, census and statistical districts • civil security units • environmental reporting and management units • postal codes/ regions No thematic information
Human health and safety Geographical distribution of dominance of pathologies, information indicating the effect on health or well-being of humans linked directly or indirectly to the quality of the environment. Description • distribution of diseases, health & safety qualities • causes and elements affecting health • wellbeing of humans • safety issues • health care services
Population distribution – demography Geographical distribution of people, including population characteristics and activity levels, aggregated by grid, region, administrative unit or other analytical unit. Broad sub-themes: • population characteristics Tot. population, age, gender… • population/ human activity levels Resource exploitation, agricultural production
