1 European Commission EUROSTAT E4
INSPIRE Directive What’s up? EC INSPIRE TEAM Joint Research Centre - Directorate-General Environment – EUROSTAT European Commission EUROSTAT E4 Now that the INSPIRE entered recently into force, Member States, their regions and the Commission are faced with important challenges related to its implementation. Implementing INSPIRE will require commitment and efforts from many public authorities and organisations which are dealing with data related to the environment. Faced with these challenges it may be worthwhile to look again at why we actually need an INSPIRE directive and how it fits in with recent environmental policy developments at Community level

2 Overview INSPIRE basics INSPIRE state of the art
INSPIRE and STATISTICS Implementing INSPIRE Contact information

3 Where can I find… …comparable geographic information for distinct administrative areas?
Challenge: identify, access and use geographic information fragmentation gaps in availability, duplication data policy restrictions / pricing policies lack of data harmonisation: standards, quality lack of infrastructure better coordination needed

4 Reference systems not harmonized
ETRS89 Reference system 2 : Clarke 80

5 Data inconsistency across borders
Different road networks density or different classifications?!

6 Data inconsistency across borders
Administrative boundaries are not matching

7 Sharing of spatial data sets and services needs to be improved!

8 INSPIRE Principles maintain data at the most effective level;
share between all levels; combine seamlessly spatial data from different sources; use conditions  not restrict extensive use; discover, evaluate, use data.

9 INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation
INSPIRE: INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe INSPIRE geo-portal A network where you can search, view, download data sets, access to other services (transformation, invoke) Technical harmonisation and organisational aspects

10 EU Geoportal = Central Access Point
Provides access to the Member States INSPIRE services Operated by the EC Operational version: 30-Nov-2010

11 INSPIRE is a Framework Directive
INSPIRE Directive sets the frame INSPIRE geo-portal coordination requests implementing rules Implementing rules: amend non essential elements, provide (technical) details Metadata Data structure Network services Monitoring and reporting Data and service sharing with EU

12 When does INSPIRE Directive apply?
Data and services Spatial data held by or on behalf of a public authority Data sets and services specified by the Directive (Annex I, II, III) Use (for public authorities) Policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment.

13 Implementing Rules development cycle:  a participatory approach
Guidelines Draft IR Text of Directive Reference materials Requirements Commission Regulation Drafting of IR Testing of draft IR Stakeholder consultation inter-service Regulatory process Manage evolution of IRs Stakeholders (SDICs, LMOs): Reference material Experts Projects

14 SDIC/LMO Office for National Statistics – UK Czech Statistical Office
Spatial Data Infrastructure for Statistics: NSI’s of Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark Statistics Denmark Statistics Austria KOSIS-Verbund (Kommunales Statistisches Informationssystem) Germany Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic

15 Data specifications and statistics
Examples of themes of interest to statistics: Statistical units (Annex III) Human health and safety (Annex III) Population distribution – demography (An. III)

16 Statistical units Units for dissemination or use of statistical information:  areas, lines, points Sub-grouping of administrative units official administrative units government management zones blocks, census and statistical districts civil security units environmental reporting and management units postal codes/ regions  No thematic information

17 Human health and safety
Geographical distribution of dominance of pathologies, information indicating the effect on health or well-being of humans linked directly or indirectly to the quality of the environment. Description distribution of diseases, health & safety qualities causes and elements affecting health wellbeing of humans safety issues health care services

18 Population distribution – demography
Geographical distribution of people, including population characteristics and activity levels, aggregated by grid, region, administrative unit or other analytical unit. Broad sub-themes: population characteristics Tot. population, age, gender… population/ human activity levels Resource exploitation, agricultural production

19 INSPIRE Implementing rules
Metadata for discovery Commission Regulation No 2008/1205/EC of 3 December 2008 Data specifications (Annexes I – III) Annex I: for vote to Committee in December 2009 Annex II and III: for vote to Committee in May 2012 Network services Discovery service, View service Voted by INSPIRE Committee, December 2008 Download service, Transformation service: for vote to Committee in December 2009 Invoke service: for vote to Committee in June 2012 Data and service sharing Provision of data from Member States to the Community institutions and bodies Voted by INSPIRE Committee, June 2009 Monitoring and reporting Commission Decision No 2009/443/EC of 5 June 2009
