Cross-border, multi-lingual and harmonized access to the Member States’ territorial data
|Main Author:||Planetek Italia S.r.l.|
|Description:||Awarding the tender for the "Development of the technical components of the INSPIRE Geoportal at European Level", of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) - Institute for Environment and Sustainability, Planetek Italia has had the opportunity to contribute to the design and the implementation of the new version of the INSPIRE Geoportal, that indeed will substitute at operational level the current prototype developed by the JRC. This fully restored version is the single access point to global European environment geoinformation resources shared and made available by all Member States, within the framework of the "Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community" (INSPIRE) Directive. The main objective of this project was to provide the operational version of the INSPIRE Geoportal at European level, including integration interfaces for discovery and view services from Member States' national Geoportals. The technical proposal, made by Planetek Italia, prime contractor, and lat/lon (www.lat-lon.de), is entirely based on Open Source technologies and OGC standards. Among the INSPIRE geoportal innovative features there are the “Interactive Discovery”, which allows users to search through all INSPIRE spatial datasets in an easy yet powerful way, and the "GeoNavigation" viewer that –for instance- allows users to combine and overlay different layers with transparency and define their order, providing all basic functionality to arrange different layers to a customized map. The project has been realized utilising the Design Thinking paradigm, the working philosophy adopted by Planetek Italia for its activities.|
