When the European Countries meet to share the Geographic Information
[10/02/2010] - [10/02/2010]
On February 10, 2010 the partners of GIS4EU project presented GIS4EU Workshop When the European Countries meet to share the Geographic Information, held at the Association of the Users of Geographic Information (USIG), Lisbon, during the myESIG 2010 Conference.
The workshop was organised by CORILA and the Instituto Geográfico Português (IGP), on behalf of GIS4EU Project.
Main goal of this workshop was to demonstrate how GIS4EU project offers to the European Countries the important opportunity to communicate and share the geographic information through the creation of one base cartography, interoperable and accessible.
This workshop has also been an important opportunity to experience from the partners involved in the activities the innovative extent of GIS4EU project for the operational validation of the implementation rules of INSPIRE Directive.
After 2 years of activities, during this workshop it was summarised the main process followed by GIS4EU for the implementation of Directive, and regarding the testing of INSPIRE data specification.
The process consists of the Transformation (measuring the technical feasibility and the effort needed to transform the original data into the INSPIRE schemas), Data Modeling on elevation (propose a preliminary model regarding the elevation theme and provide materials and documentation) and finally the Aggregation of data, on three levels: cross-border, cross-language and cross-scale.
This is one of the reasons why GIS4EU project was considered by the European Commission as one of the most significant projects.
GIS4EU workshop was free and open to USIG public.
The General Programme of the Workshop was as follows:
• IGP Welcome Session (Rui Pedro Julião – Portuguese Geographical Institute)
• GIS4EU, a playground to learn about INSPIRE (Stefania De Zorzi – CORILA)
• Intergraph: tools to build an SDI (Carmelo Attardo – Intergraph Italy)
• Hungarian SDI and GIS4EU (Pal Lévai – FÖMI)
• INSPIRE and Italian Legislation (Silvano De Zorzi – Veneto Region)
• How a local data provider can face the INSPIRE process (Marco D’Orazi – Municipality of Genoa)
• Workflow for Harmonisation (Adam Moore – University of Nottingham)
• Usability criteria to be applied to a data remodel process (Joana Palahi, University of Girona)
