The process of building of the European Spatial Data Infrastructure based on the INSPIRE requirements and recommendations is now fully in its implementation phase. See the official INSPIRE Roadmap

This INSPIRE Interactive Data specification site offers INSPIRE data providers with all resources/tools related to the implementation of the INSPIRE data specifications.

 

The INSPIRE register federation is a distributed federation of registers related to the INSPIRE Directive.

The European Commission is operating a (central) registry providing common INSPIRE registers, e.g. to manage INSPIRE code lists or themes. Where Member States extend these code lists, they are obliged to make available the extended values in local registers. Such local registers can also support other use cases, e.g. the management of organisations in a country that have to implement INSPIRE, or thematic vocabularies, such as those provided by EU institutions and bodies.

The INSPIRE infrastructure involves a number of items, which require clear descriptions and the possibility to be referenced through unique identifiers. Examples for such items include INSPIRE themes, code lists, application schemas or discovery services. Registers provide a means to assign identifiers to items and their labels, definitions and descriptions (in different languages). The INSPIRE registry provides a central access point to a number of centrally managed INSPIRE registers.

The dashboard (DAOBS) is a tool to register, visualize and evaluate the level of INSPIRE conformance of a set of INSPIRE services of a country and/or organisation.

The dashboard is triggered by registering a CSW endpoint and/or a conformance evaluation report. The dashboard has an integration with Esdin Test Framework, so it can evaluate conformance of any registered service that is linked to from metadata in the CSW endpoint.
