Embracing INSPIRE in a legacy veterinary data management system Nicola Ferrè - IZSVe Eduard Roccatello – 3DGIS Geospatial World Forum May 2013 Beurs-World Trade Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
INSPIRE empowers collaboration 3DGIS Italian GIS company 3D and mobile GIS experts Active in research projects (in collaboration with University of Padua and University IUAV of Venice). IZSVe Veterinary laboratory GIS unit Reference laboratories for FAO, OIE and EU Research activities at Italian, European and World level
Data and Information Sharing within the Veterinary Scientific Community: Legislative State of the Art and the Role of EPIZONE [..] we have underscored the need to be able to consolidate information from disparate systems to support epizootic disease diagnosis and control, crossing National, State and Local government areas and extending into pan-European agency boundaries. 3rd – 4th November 2011 Mira, Italy Projects aim
Why INSPIRE? The general situation on spatial information in Europe is one of fragmentation of datasets and sources, gaps in availability, lack of harmonisation between datasets and duplication of information collection. These problems make it difficult to identify, access and use data that is available veterinary
Holding conceptual model COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 92/102/EEC [..] the geographic co-ordinates or equivalent geographic indication of the holding [..] COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 2006/88/EC [..] the geographical position of the farm defined by a suitable system of coordinates of all farm-sites (if possible, GIS coordinates); [..]

Why not using a pure INSPIRE model? AF model is good but we had to cover specific needs, not currently available into the theme. We managed to design some extensions, while keeping INSPIRE in mind. This allowed us to keep working as usual, while migrating towards a INSPIRE compliance.
IZSVe model vs legacy model Designed to be INSPIRED compliant. Well structured. Easily adapts to the vast majority of applications. Allows variable level of detail (coarse detail to fine detail). GIS data has been integrated into the workflow to improve analysis.
WebGIS aided data collection WebGIS is being developed to support data collection and analysis. Users will be able to input data directly into the model without hassle. Different levels of detail per user.

INSPIRE as an opportunity for SME Partnership with domain experts in order to support INSPIRE data model Legacy data transformation towards INSPIRE Internationalization opportunities No more data model hassles (in theory )
3DGIS is commited to INSPIRE Carto features a module to output Annex I from IntesaGIS (Italian regulation for TDB). The next release of Reti (network management solution) will support INSPIRE network specifications. We are looking forward to integrate INSPIRE data model into our software solutions.
Project future A number of barriers exist on both the individual, organizational and systemic level: – turf concerns – unclear benefits for the organization – narrow categorical funding programs Increase awareness within the EPIZONE network and vet community as whole
