This section contains an inventory of useful tools for the INSPIRE implementation. They can range from desktop/server software, libraries, plugins, online services and many more technical products and solutions that help people to share INSPIRE data, metadata and services.

  • If you are a solution provider you can use this space to showcase your product by adding it to the catalogue or by claiming an existing record that you can then directly manage to highlight particular features for INSPIRE implementation.
  • If you are an implementer or an application developer you can also contribute to the catalogue by adding examples of tools that have not yet been registered but that you have used in either your implementation or developments.

The commenting option can be useful to also raise awareness about issues or needs … that could also lead to development opportunities…
